Hi Garry, My name is***** know that this must be very upsetting, an I will do my best to help you resolve this. It is very possible that this a SCAM email. While it may appear to be from AOL, it may actually be from someone else entirely.
Here's how we can tell who it is really from :
• Log in to your AOL account.• Open the message you want to view headers for.• In the Action menu, select View Message Source.
You should see something like this:
