AOL Email Address Will Stop Working Unless you Switch to AOL OATH Scam

Cybercriminals are sending out fake AOL Oath email notifications to potential victims, in an attempt to trick them into clicking on malicious links in the same emails. The malicious links go to phishing websites that steal visitors' email or online account credentials, by tricking them into signing in.

Important Information About Your AOL - Email Service


As you've used your email address in the last 90 days, we need to let you know about some changes we're making.

Please take some time to switch and agree to the new unified Terms of Service and Privacy Policy by clicking on the button below. .

    For the last 7-8 days my email does not open completely. I click on an email and it opens partially but all I get is a completely white screen instead of text/picture/attachment. I cannot open anything. Can you help or advise what I need to do. Some of my email is from Merrill LYnch and I NEED to open them. Please help!

    I get these daily, and each day they update the date that my service will be turned off if I don't click on a link. Laughable really - obvious spoof email. The first clue was that the email was from Mexico.

    I received notification yesterday sent to my scam and not my aol.com in-box. I have tried to change to Oath but I cannot remember my AOL password as it comes up automatically. I gave the password which I changed to in 10.2.18. What else can I enter to be sure. I have changed over? I will make a new password if necessary.
