    phishing emails


    I've been getting lots of emails that appear to be from Microsoft. I checked the email source info. I'm no expert but they appear to be valid. However, what the emails report or are asking are suspect. The emails will either tell me that I've changed my P/W, logged in, or created another ID with access. See below for an example. Attempts to contact MS Account Team directly got me no replies. I've checked my account info/history and everything looks OK i.e. p/w OK, history shows no suspicious log-on, no IDs have been added, etc.I generally mark this stuff as PHISHING and report it.Can

  2. phishing email

    While there are legitimate emails from the Microsoft account team,
    email phishing scams using the Microsoft name
    are very common so you have to be very careful. A
    legitimate email address domain from Microsoft is @accountprotection.microsoft.com.


    This is an example of an older scam:
    Ask Leo: Is Windows Live Hotmail about to close my account?
