Scam - "Closing of Your Microsoft Account is Been Processed"

The email message below with subject: "Closing of your Microsoft Account is been processed," is a phishing scam created to steal Microsoft Hotmail, Live or Outlook user names and passwords. The email message was not sent by Microsoft, but by cyber-criminals, whose intentions are to gain access to the potential victims' accounts by hijacking them and then using them fraudulently.
