Possible AOL scam

I recieved an email that had the tag line alert@aol.com (but the other email is skunk something) that says I need to update my billing information or my account will be deleted. I have been a memeber since 2005, went from paid to free account and am very curious if this isn't a scam but they are using AOL logo etc. something someone might want to check in to.
