Do we have a way of reporting spam/malware to you (and then, hopefully, you do something about it)? For example, I've gotten two messages today, telling me that my email is going to be canclled or whatever, and these messages are apparently coming from other AOL accounts.
If a user is abusing our system to send mail, we’re definitely interested. Please mark these emails as spam, it will generate a report that goes to a team focused on such experiences can review and take the appropriate action. For security reasons, they’ll be limited in the information they can share back, however, we’re dedicated to ensuring our users don’t abuse our system, and the Community Action Team will act accordingly.

Keep getting spam mail saying if I do not reply within a certain date they will close down my e-mail account, normally from someone at prodigy.
Is there somewhere on my account that will let me update preferences.
Edward Hoyle commented
I received a message from AOL webmail.com (********@*********) saying that my account is going to be closed. Is this correct?
I want to know if these e's are for real, or spam?

Subject: AOL SERVICE
In June 2018, Yahoo and AOL joined forces to create Oath, a media and technology company with a dynamic house of global brands, and a part of Verizon. It's an exciting venture that we believe will bring a host of new innovations and digital experiences for our users. With Verizon, Oath can provide you with better experiences and services.

What You Need to Do
Thank you for your continued loyalty and support.
There should be a clear way to report inappropriate mail, such as extortion mail.
Is there any chance of blocking the continuous spam reference AOL Oath updates, I must get at least 6 a day and they really are annoying, I have tried changing passwords but they still get through
Someone is creating fraudulent AOL accounts. Please contact me.
Make it VERY EASY to find the Abuse Reporting Address to use for reporting AOL accounts, used for SPAMMING/Phishing, where the message was sent to a NON AOL ADDRESS!!!!!
Instead your search requires 20 minutes OR MORE of useless searching to find the address (IF I DO FIND IT!)
You don't even recognize when they are spamming us in the name of AOL Mail's.

This is not really an idea. I received and email 9-22-19 that went to spam that said it was from AOL and my account would be deactivated but the address looked suspicious and I deleted it.
I received another email like it on 9/25/19 that also went to spam and I deleted it also. I just want to make sure my account is okay.
I'm reporting fraudulent e-mails /phishing scams pretending to be AOL. They went in my spam folder (the two E-mails are): Aol! Mail (***********), and Aol! Mail (***********) , in subject they both have: "Your Account Will Be Deactivated". The body of the e-mail types: "This is to inform you that your request on: 17/09/2019 to remove your account from Aol server has been approved and will initiate in one hour from the exact time you open this message. Regards.
ignore this message to continue with email removal or
If this deactivation was not requested by you
Please reply us.

Please do more to prevent spam emails, supposedly from AOL, reaching my in box
