The link in the email message goes to a fake Microsoft website that tricks potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If the potential victims enter their Microsoft usernames and passwords on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack the victims' accounts.

Therefore, Microsoft users who have received email messages like the one above, should go directly to their email accounts instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is anything wrong with their accounts, it will be shown to them after signing into.

Now, Microsoft users who were tricked by phishing scams should change their passwords immediately.
