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.

Hi there,

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

Scam message from Aol

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.

Is this from AOL, spam, scam, phishing?

There might be something coming to you, but you don't have to pay a fee. There are state Unclaimed Property offices that you can check for free. You might have a tax refund or something that went to an old address. You can find the state web sites from https://www.unclaimed.org/.
