scam?

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
I recently received an email from Wildblue asking me to verify and update my billing information due to the change from the Google platform to the new email platform. It further warns that "All account owners who refuse to update account within 72 hours of receipt of this email will lose his/her account permanently." The email is worded in an awkward way and the request seems odd. I think it is a scam. I hope someone from Wildblue will comment on this.

There have been many posts about this over the past few months. It is definitely a scam, trying to get people to give their credit card information.
