Beware of "Microsoft 2016 Outlook Support - Security Info Replacement" Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject: "Security info replacement," is a phishing scam, which was created and sent by cyber-criminals to steal the recipients’ email account username and password. Once cyber-criminals have gotten their victims’ email account credentials, they will hijack their accounts and use them fraudulently. So, recipients of the fake email message should delete it and never attempt to click on the links or follow the instructions in it.

Recipients of the fake email message, who have already followed the instructions in it, should change their email account's password immediately. Also, the website: "useroutlookserver," where the links in the fake email message will take potential victims to, should never be visited.
