Computer pop ups while online “You need to call ..” DON’T FALL FOR IT

Are you getting a random pop up on your computer screen asking you to call a phone number so they can fix your computer? This is not limited to Microsoft Operating Systems.

VERIZON EMAIL MOVING TO AOL

Verizon is moving its email to AOL. Don’t disregard the notification when you receive it. As per Verizon you will have 30 days to comply with the migration to AOL.

“What will happen if I decide to take no action to move my verizon.net email?”

Doing so helps Verizon reduce their server storage needs and electrical consumption.
