CenturyLink would never send out an email saying that.

Also you could directly go to century links website, and log onto your account.

If anything was going to happen you’d get notified on the site. You’d also have a letter sent in the mail  for cancelation. Also you don’t just  lose your email unless you cancel the account yourself.

Of course, its phishing.  If you deactivated your e-mail, how could you have received that message?  Was the phishing writer smart enough to answer that question by saying that your e-mail would remain active for a certain time?

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.
