This is your official notification from a phishing scammer that you do not get many subject lines longer than this one.

"...you must renew the service(s) listed below or it will be deactivated and deleted."

Yes and they will probably delete your debt as well, so most people who owe GTE some money will ignore this e-mail anyway. No account, no debt.

Reality call to all phishing scammers: Do you really think people will believe hogwash like this?
