The fake email messages are being sent by cyber criminals to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking on the link within them. The link goes to a phishing website or a fake website created by cyber criminals to trick potential victims into signing in. But, any attempts to sign into the fake website, will result in the victims’ Microsoft account usernames and passwords being sent to cyber criminals.
