Dawn, these emails are definitely scams, or people phishing for your personal information. Do not respond to them, do not click on the links, just delete them.

Hi Dawn, Steve is correct. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please do not respond the email. It is a phishing email. For your added security, I recommend you change your account password. ViaSat/Exede will never ask you to provide any personal information by email. We will always speak directly to you, if we need to confirm any personal information.
