detected suspicious activity ... or not

We have received (so far) 2 emails from Cox claiming that "We've detected suspicious activity on your Cox.net email account xyz@cox.net [and zyx@cox.net] and believe this email address password may be compromised or your computer may be infected with Malware. If you do not recognize this email account, it may have been created without your knowledge."  We regularly scan our Mac with MalwareBytes, and other utilities, seeing NO malware here. The email goes on to say that we should change our password(s). Is anyone else getting these things? Is there any way to get through the bureaucracy to find just what "suspicious" activity they are seeing?

Or is it just one of those annoyances ...

  • What "suspicious activity" is what I want to know.  It's my account. Tell me what some malefactors are doing to it. Secondly, this is the email address of the account holder.  Why doesn't Cox recognize it?  It's how they've reached me for 20 years.

    If there are no malefactors, then Cox is in the "fake news" business. That's not company you want to keep.
