Beware of "We Have Detected Unusual Activity With Your Yahoo and Microsoft Account" Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims unusual activities have been detected on the recipients' Yahoo and Microsoft accounts, is a fake. The email message was NOT sent by Microsoft or Yahoo and is a phishing scam created by cybercriminals to steal Microsoft, MSN, Hotmail, Live, Outlook and Yahoo usernames, and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not click on the links or follow the instructions in it. Microsoft or Yahoo email users who have received similar emails and who want to know if there is something actually wrong with their accounts should go directly to www.outlook.com or yahoo.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. And, Yahoo users go directly to mail.yahoo.com.

    As I see other comments, it is obviously fake email!

    I have written dozens of times to Yahoo's Senior Executives, Office of the President, and Customer Advocacy requesting that they take action against these criminals. These emails originate from IPs allocated by Ripe NCC based in the Netherlands and every reported instance to them only gets a canned response to the effect that they are not responsible for users' content.

    Suggest that Yahoo Mail users receiving these emails continue to respond to the following Executive/BOD and RIPE email addresses; if enough people complain maybe Yahoo/RIPE will act:
    Yahoo Inc Webmaster abuse@yahoo-inc.com
    Yahoo! Inc. privacy@yahoo-inc.com
    cc-advoc@yahoo-inc.com
    corporatesecretary@yahoo-inc.com
    abuse@yahoo.com
    privacy@yahoo.com
    spam@yahoo.com
    ...
    Ripe Webmaster
