Beware of "A Deactivation Request was Made by You" Microsoft Hotmail Email Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims that a request was made to close down the recipients' Microsoft Hotmail account, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was created and sent by cyber-criminals to steal the recipients’ email account usernames and passwords. 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.

Hello User,

A deactivation request was made by you yesterday at exactly 19.01pm to completely close down your Hotmail account. We are attending to the request and soon we will close the email box as requested.

If you did not make this request and you think you are receiving this message mistakenly, please click HERE and update your account valid, otherwise your account will be shut down.

Thank you,
Microsoft Management
