Beware of "Your E-mail Account has Exceeded its Monthly Limit and Needs to be Verified" Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients’ email account has exceeded it’s monthly limit and needs to be verified within 24 hours, is a phishing scam. The fake email message 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.
