AOL users and an email from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM SPAM
In case some of you out there are AOL users there is a SPAM that is circulating that is in regards to a purchase at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. This is a bogus email as AOL has appartently been hacked. There will be a link inside the email to verify your screenname and password... DO NOT click the link nor give them the information they are requesting. This is not from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. We all know that AOL WILL NOT EVER ask you for your password. I have been on the phone with 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and am also contacting AOL. The customer service rep at FLOWERS told me that we are to use the "report and block" button that is at the bottom of your in box. Do this AFTER you have contacted the AOL customer service at 1-800-827-3338.
Sorry to be boring folks but I worry about some users that get caught in these scams so I tend to be a bit of a Internet security freak.

We were hacked. Thought hubby had lost his mind so checked with him before I clicked on it. Fri am at 7am we were on the phone to AOL. Apparently over 600k accounts were hacked. All set now. Luckily, didn't open it or give user name or password
