Beware of "Your Email Account has Exceeded it's Mail Quota on the Database Server" Phishing Scam

The email messages below, which claim that the recipients have have exceeded their email account quota on the database server, is a phishing scam. The email messages were not sent from the recipients' email providers. They were instead, sent by cyber-criminals to steal recipients' email address passwords, by tricking them into clicking on the link within it. The link will take the recipients who have clicked on it, to a fake or bogus website looking like your email address provider’s sign in or login page. Once the recipients enter their email account user name and password on the bogus website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who use the information to hijack their victims' email accounts.
