Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Tonight

Low pressure will rapidly intensify in the Guld of Maine tonight causing the wind to increase from the west-northwest in gusts from 35-40 mph driving a bitterly cold air mass into the region.  Temperatures will plunge to near or below zero with wind chills later tonight through Saturday morning dropping to a range of -15 to -25 at times.  Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and gloves and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can set develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces. Pets should be brought in - if you're cold they are too.

The Bottom Line: Account Support e-mails

Updated: Monday, August 26 2013, 09:55 PM EDT
ALBANY -- It offers account support, but really, is trying to gain access your account!
A Bottom Line Alert about a vague, yet invasive e-mail going around - which CBS 6 viewer Chris let Dori Marlin know about.
It's sent to "undisclosed-recipients" - from "Support Team" - the subject says "Account Maintenance/Upgrade" - and the body of it asks for all kinds of information, including your name, username, and password.
It also says "your e-mail address is about to be de-activated" and contains a link to contact the "Maintenance/Upgrade" team.
Dori checked the e-mail out against criteria from the Federal Trade Commission, and it turns out, the e-mail does fit the profile of a phishing e-mail.
If you happen to receive it, the FTC says don't reply, and don't click on anything.  Instead, delete the message immediately - and remember that legitimate companies don't ask for that information, via email.The Bottom Line: Account Support e-mails
