Beware of "AOL Request to Terminate Account" Phishing Scam

The "AOL Request to Terminate Account" email message below is a phishing scam. The phishing email message is being sent by cybercriminals to trick AOL users into clicking on the link in it. The link in the email message goes to a fake AOL website that will ask visitors to sign-in. Once visitors attempt to sign into the fake website with their AOL user names and passwords, the information will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the phishing scam.
