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.
If an AOL user is sending you spam/scam emails, you can report it here: https://help.aol.com/articles/report-abuse-or-spam-on-aol
Additionally, here's how to recognize official AOL emails: https://help.aol.com/articles/identify-legitimate-aol-websites-requests-and-communications

STOP WITH THE UNUSUAL ACTIVITY NOTICE- 4 TIMES IN 3 DAYS IS EXCESSIVE! Perhaps my social media contacts can flood your site with the same complaint.
Just got a call from a reported Mac Watson of AOL Customer Service. his number was 844 708 1234. The display # on y phone was 1-3647.
He said Mary McDonald from Dayton OH is hacking my AOL acct.
He asked for a Windows R which opened a window and then type in CMD.
That is when we were done.
I called AOL Customer service. They said it was a scammer, they don't call people. Then they wanted me to go on AOL GoLD.
Then we were done.

opened my email and the opening screen congratulated me on being #xxxxx to use emall today. As a result, I earned an iphone for $1. Total scam as my bank fraud dept called and asked if I had authorised $39.99 charge to an escort service! This is nonsense that you would allow this to have a presence on your site! Going to gmail
very distrurbing saying it will stop service
Every night I get 2 emails that say they are AOL reminders and I owe $5,312. Spam does not catch them. I still get them.
AOL, should investigate...
I still have 4 emails in my spam box..
Did you send me an email from Your_Account email@example.com that someone has my email? I found the email in my spam and they're requesting I answer within 24 hours. Thanks

How do I know an email saying it is from AOL is actually from AOL?

Admin received a request from you to shut down you mail account with us. Your request will be processed within 48 hours as request.
Kindly follow the link below to cancel the shut down request if it was sent in an error.

Today I received an e-mail from you which asked me to upgrade the emails storage. When I click on the button for upgrading I get an empty web-page where nothing happens. How long do I have to wait there. Is the email storage upgraded now? My email at aol is: *******@aol.com
I KEEP GETTING EMAIL FROM: AOLREMINDER... I DO NOT OPEN THEM BUT WHAT ARE THEY .... THEY LOOK LIKE A SCAM.. PLEASE STOP THIS
This address is used by thieves, possibly Nigerian. firstname.lastname@example.org
Cancel this email address which is constantly sending me **** requests ************@aol.com
I received an remark with @aim.com as part of my email address. I do not know who this was and they claimed I purchased something. Their information is not addressable for me to report this fraudulent email. Any suggestions?
I have no way to report spam........or block it...only put it in spam file?
Aolreminder - "Your Outstanding Invoice USD$5,312" reminder
EVERY night 2 times a night 2 emails from an obvious AOL fraud with some kind of phishing or malware, but yoiu don't stop it. YOU SHOULD stop every email looking like it is from Aol but it is not
Reporting Phishing should be able to be easily done. You should have an easy way to report problems to prevent more damage being done to others. I spent 5 minutes trying to figure out how to do it on your email site and couldn't figure it out.
please supply an e mail address where we can forward obvious spam e mails
