AIM Phishing Example - Your AIM account will be deleted

AOL Instant Messenger

- The email looks realy, this one would be tricky to identify as phishing for some.


Dear AIM user,

Your AIM account is flagged as inactive. Within the following 72 hours it’ll be deleted from the system.

If you plan to use this account in the future, you have to download and launch the latest update for the AIM. This update is critical.

In order to install the update use the following link.

http:// update.aol.com.pikoe.c=
om.pl/products/aimController.php?code=3D4480664933638111725361757890010&ema=
il=3Dscottfutral @khk.net

 

Look at the url update.aol.com.pikoe.c=om.pl this is how you can spot a fake, a realy AIM addres would be http://products.aim.com/

This link is generated exclusively for your account and is available within a certain period of time. As soon as this link is not available anymore you will get another letter.

Thank you,

AIM Service Team
