Beware of "Microsoft Windows Mailbox Will Expire and Disable" Phishing Scam

Microsoft users who have received emails like the one below, which claims that their accounts will expire and disable are asked to delete them because they are phishing scams. The phishing emails are being sent by cybercriminals to trick Microsoft account users into clicking on a link in them, which goes to a phishing website that steals online account usernames and passwords. Therefore, Microsoft users who have already been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their account password immediately, before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.

Please continue below.

For users whose accounts have already been hijacked, they may click here for help regaining access to their accounts. Remeber, never click on a link to sign into your Microsoft email account, always go directly to www.live.com, www.outlook.com or www.hotmail.com. Once you have signed into your account, you will be notified of important notices, changes or warnings if there is any.
