Yo Grumpy,
 
Copy the, From field, and paste it into notepad to see who sent it, and that'll tell you for sure it's a scam / spam message.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: [TechTalk] Is this a Scam or Fishing Email, or is it real?

Hello,


I just received this Email, that tells me I have deactivated my Email,
which is absolutely not true. Never visited my Email provider's Web
site, and made No changes to my account.


So, I ask, is this a Fishing attempt, by someone hoping to get my
password? Or is it real.


And of course, since today is Saturday, I can't just call up my Phone
Company because they are closed for the week end.
