    Don't click the links!!


    I guess I'll never learn to never click any links in strange emails. Last Friday I got an email from Verizon stating that my bill was available to view online. I am used to getting such emails in a myway email account because I once used it to send an email to Verizon years ago. I refuse to " enroll " in their on-line bill paying.

    At any rate at the bottom of the email was a link to click if the email was an error; and I foolishly clicked it and got a message that I owed $600.00 and my phone service would be shut off and it was until today. Unfortunately Verizon has a monopoly here that I have to endure. Another lesson learned by me the hard way!!

    It probably wans't from Verizon anyway. I get loads of these and they are all scams. Occasionally I get one claiming to be from a company I actually have an account with but the law of averages says that will happen.

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
