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.

AOL will never ask you for your username, password, or any other private account information in an email we send to you.

Sounds phishy to me too. I have not seen any such warning. Even if the sender's name is not spoofed, joyka234@aol.com does not appear to be an official sender. It is probably not showing Official Mail symbols like a blue envelope or an envelope with lines through it.

AOL actually puts out warning info on this and tells you to ignore those scams. If in doubt call them, but those scams have been doing that to get credit cards numbers for many many years now. Surely plenty of people get burned on that.
