For those with verizon accounts, you should try accessing your accounts without using the link.

Appears to be a scam, but it might be a mistake. I do not have a verizon account, and to the best of my knowledge, have not had one for at least 10 years. I have gotten two of these today, to the same email. I never give that email address out for anything except mailing lists I subscribe to, though.

I had not thought about it, but I guess even this thing needs a computer chip these days.

Could not access email for a couple of hours now, checked and can not get to my websites either. Tried to go to +HostGator support forums, but they are down to. Maybe the whole Hostgator site went down today.
