There have been a lot of these scam emails going around lately and they will ask you for personal information like your social security number or other personal information. No legitimate company would ask you for information like this.

You can go ahead and delete that email. If you cannot sign in reset your password, however your account should be fine. This looks like a common scam email so nothing to worry about, just delete it. My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating for providing you a quick answer! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
