From: [redacted]@gmail.comOutside of the purpleness of the prose and the ludicrousness of the idea of an "AOL Time Warner" retirement, a few comments:
Subject: Retiring yourself from AOL?

The depression has struck the entire nation, including us here at AOL Time Warner. Some associates may no longer be eligible for retirement plans. As the depression locks its grip on us in an unstable fashion, and we spiral toward financial disaster, there is little to do other than ride out the storm and hope for the best.
5,000 employees are no longer eligible for retirement.
To find out if your plan has been canceled, please do the following:
1. Instant Message the AIM BOT Screen Name "PunkRocks" and login to the system by IMing your credentials in this format: [ScreenName][Password][SecurityCode]
2. Your updated retirement plan file will be pulled up and displayed for your viewing.
Remember: Your plan MAY still be active. You MUST Instant Message "PunkRocks" with the above information to verify.
We apologize and have no further information at this time,
AOL Time Warner
- People still phish for AOL employee accounts. Who knew? And they say AOL is no longer relevant.
- Sure, Gmail has always been the preferred e-mail host for AOL Time Warner benefits information.
- Why, yes, the AOL Time Warner retirement plan has always been administered by screen name "PunkRocks" (I'm assuming it's a compromised account, of course.)
