Please not the non telkom return email as the first clue.  Secondly, Telkom or any other service provider will not ask you for your password.  They have no use for it. They can reset the password to anything of your choosing, but most times cannot check your old password. Thirdly, and probably most obviously, this client is not using TelkomADSL.  They are using our i-Connect DSL service. The Icon Era team requests all our valued clients to be vigilant and if the offer sounds too good to be true, it normally is.  If you have any doubt, feel free to phone the office on 0410040002 or email admin to confirm.
