I opened an email from SBC Customer Care service saying that due to a bunch of hog wash they were going to be cancelling accounts. Well as I proceeded to read they asked for email, password, date of birth and country or territory you live in. I'm thinking you've got to be outta your mind. You can keep it then. Well the more I thought about it I was curious. So I called SBC and yes they are aware of the bogus email and are trying to track it down. So please DON'T be spammed. NEVER NEVER give out your password to anything to anyone.

That's a phone company. In Michigan they are now At&T.

And as for the email scam...any company you do business with will NEVER send an email requesting account information, social security number etc....as this is all information they already have on record when you signed up for service. The only time they ask for it is when YOU, the customer, CALL them. Then they will have you give that info to confirm that you are indeed the account holder.


Just like the email going around that says it's from the FBI. The FBI will not email you if they have questions...they will knock on your door. Unfortunately...people do fall for these things.

I get those from Paypal all the time. If they ask for information it is a scam pure and simple. No bank or business will ever ask you for information in an e-mail.

Yeah, SBC will even tell you that they will never ask you for your password,but you can tell me it'll be okay. I won't tell anyone.

FYI....... When you get a letter from "yahoo" or "paypal" that does NOT seem legitimate, forward the letter to spoof@ (yahoo, or paypal,) or whoever it was SUPPOSED to be from. These companies have staff that are constantly on the search for scam artists and forwarding them the email (as opposed to just deleting it) lets them try to trace the ISP and possibly catch them.... or at least block them.
