Beware of "Microsoft Email Account Unusual Sign-in Activity Deactivation" Phishing Email

The email message below, which claims the recipients' email accounts will be deactivated and they will not be able to receive or send emails, is a phishing scam. The scam is being sent by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims' Microsoft, MSN, Hotmail, Live or Outlook usernames and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not click on the links or follow the instructions in it. Microsoft email users who have received similar emails and who want to know if there is something actually wrong with their accounts, may go directly to www.outlook.com, www.hotmail.com or www.live.com and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong, or if there is something that needs to be done on their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.

Please continue below.

It is recommended that Microsoft Hotmail, Live or Outlook users never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should go directly to www.outlook.com, www.hotmail.com or www.live.com sign-in from there instead. This will prevent cybercriminals from stealing their account credentials, gaining access to their email accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.
