Windstream is updating their webmail accounts, and someone is trying to take advantage of that fact by sending bogus phishing emails. Neal Warren with windstream contacted AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio and asked that we warn our listeners about this scam.
Some of these bogus e mails may come from "Support Centre" with the subject of "Confirm and upgrade your Windstream account" which reads: "Dear valued Windstream User,
This is to inform you that we are of current plan to upgrade our webmail site and You have to confirm and upgrade your account by replying to this mail they then ask for your e mail address and password. for confirmation of account."
This is obviously a fake email and should not be replied to. It is an attempt to steal email account information.
