Phishing Scam - "Update Your Account - Outlook Will Be Suspended Today"
The email message below with the subject: "Update Your Account," which claims that the recipients' Microsoft Outlook accounts will be suspended today because the same accounts have reached an upgrade stage, 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 Microsoft Outlook email account's password immediately.
