    I got this message three times. I do not want my account suspended but this looks bogus. Has anyone else got this message before?

    Hi Jo Ann,

    That is a phishing scam.

    It's an attempt by a spammer to steal your account and use it to send spam.

    NEVER reply to an email that asks for your password. Mark the email as spam and delete it.

    If you are still using the account when it's allegedly "suspended" that is another indication that it is a scam. If it were truly suspended, you couldn't receive or send emails at all.
