Excellent phishing attempt:

Dear EarthLink member,

your EarthLink membership is temporary FROSEN!


To continue your EarthLink membership we now require you to update your billing information and fill out some additional fields such as ATM PIN-code, Social Security Number, Mother’s Maiden Name and Date Of Birth since it is impossible for a scammer to know it.

(eventually there’s this line, which is kind of the point…)
