What do they do with the screen names
Once these phonies get screen names and passwords, what can they do with them?

No real business is going to have their **** hosted on AOL, it screams of scam to me. Granted it might be some kind of prank thing, if its asking for a password or anything of that nature, its best to ignore it right off the bat.
You're not your post count, You're not your avatar or sig, You're not how fast your internet connection is, You are not your processor, hard drive, or graphics card. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of AO

u gotta be careful og these kinds of mail. there are a lot going around out there. They use it to get your account details. I have had similar mails sent to me from paypal, ebay and a couple of sites asking me for my account details as they need to update my information. even the link details look like its going to paypal until you look closely and you realise its being redirected to another site.
You need to be careful and email AOL and 1800flowers to let them know about it. thats about all you can do. dont ever key in yuor account details unless you are sure you are at the correct place. there are lots of these going around. its just another scam.

Be sure to let us know if you get any kinda reply back from AOL, or 1800flowers. I think it would be interesting to see what they have to say, or if it is not a phony.
