    I am told that my account was hacked and has violated the outlook agreement, and my account was suspended, everywhere I tried to recover, I was told to try again, or there was an error etc. I have been trying for about five days and the same thing I was told when verifying my account, I can get some of my emails, and I can send emails, but not the normal way, please look into that for me.

      The email that you have received about violating Outlook agreement is a fake, therefore, you should not have followed the instructions in it. Please change your Outlook password immediately.

    I received the following:

    "Microsoft account team

    Verify your email address

    To finish setting up this Microsoft account, we just need to make sure this email address is yours.
    Verify [email address removed]
    Or you may be asked to enter this security code: 0671
    If you didn't make this request, click here to cancel.

    I was on freelancer.com and I had bid on a project, the project creator sent me a document(which is not uncommon) and I did it and it said I didn't have Microsoft 365. I went onto sign up for a free month, received email to verify email, clicked the link, received another email and got more suspicious, I wound up Googling and I'm pretty sure this is a phishing attempt.

    Whenever I have changed my password for any of my Outlook accounts within the last year, I have been receiving and e-mail from account-security-noreply @account.microsoft.com.

    This has been what is going on with all of my Outlook e-mail accounts.

    I think the reason that many people fall for these scams is that they do not understand domains. I have getting the account verification e-mail on all of my accounts on Outlook.com and Google.

    It's a very clever trap.
