Beware of Phishing scams for Knology users

I have received emails claiming to be from Knology customer service or support over the last couple of weeks.  I thought I would share the content with my readers so they can be aware of how these emails may look.  The key thing to be very suspect is any time an email asks for personal information and passwords.

When in doubt contact the company by other means. 
Additional tips:
1. Do not respond to email.
2. Do not click on links.
3. If reading from a preview delete without actually opening.
4. If the company in question has a department to handle spam email them a copy.

Be safe.  the following is an example of the most recent emai I received:
