  Posted by kelly - How To I Report Phishing To Aol :
A friend sent me an email that I supposed sent him asking if my account had been phished.... how do I report this to AOL to investigate?

Guest Says:
go to www.aol.com and go to the help section, they have contacts there to report phishing, fraud, etc

Guest Says:
There is an abuse or phishing email contact for aol at notifyaol@abuse.aol.com   You can report abuse to AOL there, but keep in mind phishing is attempted daily so there isn't much they can do with a million emails, most are not even from aol members even though the email may look like it is.  If the notify email above doesn't work then go to www.aol.com and see if they have a new one as stated, sometimes those email addresses change

someone may have phished my account I have been receiving messages from friends saying to change my password which i did and report this to AOL which I am doing now.  Is there anything else I should do?

Guest Says:
As long as you changed your password you should be fine.  Make sure you don't have any spyware on your computer which is stealing your passwords, always worth checking out .....

Guest Says:
You can't report phishing or attempted fraud/I.D. theft to AOL. They have an email address (abuse@aol.com) where one can supposedly send suspicious emails, but it does nothing and AOL never responds. It's a waste of time.

I have already reported to aol abuse legal dept by email and through UPS. I sent the aol legal dept printed emails of porn, men wanting to perform unsavory acts on me, pics of mens ####'s, mental institution literature, addiction/ AAA sites, Facebook's jerk.com and many other offensive emails. The person doing it is kelly knopick and it's been going on for almost 4 years. I had to drop my aol acct and start using gmail however she is still harrassing me by skype. Also she managed to obtain my gmail address and I'm not getting the same disgusting emails. Aol obviously does not take abuse seriously or they would have dropped kknopick92@aol.com a long time ago. I'm 52 years old and use the internet for legal purposes, purchases, paying bills not as a weapon. My files were stolen, emails read and deleted. Also all my vacation pics, daughter, family photos deleted. I'm finding young people who don't work have lots of time on their hands to perform such criminal activity. I would like to know what my next option is. I already filed with sheriff's dept and sent aol the report number. Still aol has done nothing what so ever!!

Guest Says:
Thats just a scam, click the spam button on the email and ignore it.


Guest Says:
I recommend searching for AOL's report/support addresses and sending your report to them, but the cannot respond due to the fact there's many more reports to look at. In the meantime, block the sender and the message and tell others about the scam you received. Be sure to change your password in case, and check if your email address is posted without your approval and report that.

Main point: send your report to multiple AOL report and support addresses to maximize the chance that your report will get seen.

If you receive a call from 844-784-2424 MyGeeksWorld - they are not affiliated with AOL.  They will tell you they are the tech support for AOL; then ask you questions... Hang-Up. Do not give them your phone numbers / passwords / or any account information.  Do Not Believe them.

Guest Says:
There are actually quite a few AOL scams where they act like they are tech support, but AOL doesn't affiliate with these in any way.  Never give out any information because of a random phone call, just like never give out information because you received an email either .....

Sandra Says:
Hi I have received an email to say you are updating you data policy and I need to click on a link to update today otherwise I will not be able to get into by account. It appears to ask for my email address and password.  I have not done this as I am suspicious, it says it is from  Oath company

Guest Says:
Sandra, thats because yahoo and aol are forming a new company named oath.  You will see oath message if using either of their email services etc.

Guest Says:
You have to love how aol says dont fall for phishing emails, then oath sends out an email to everyone on aol and yahoo email asking to click the links.  LMAO  

Guest Says:
vtschantre@aol.com stealing email addresses and sending out fake emails to click on a link. do not click on the link from this dirtbag coward.

Jesus Says:
There is no such thing as an email where you can report phishing attempts or abuse issues to AOL.
Stop believing in fairy tales!

(they hated Jesus because he told them the truth)
