The link in the phishing email message will take recipients who have clicked on it to a phishing Microsoft Hotmail or Outlook website, where they will be asked to sign-in. Once the potential victims attempt to sign-in, their email account credentials(usernames and passwords) will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the phishing scam. Once cyber-criminals are in possession of their victims' email account credentials, they will hijack and use their victims' email accounts fraudulently.
