You have 3 rejected incoming messages to your below email address:

Your email () currently have two incoming

messages pending delivery from Office 365 because the recipient's email failed our

security detection checks.

To keep you safe, we require an extra security challenge. Verify your e-mail

below to allow email delivery transmission from our secured mail servers.

Verify your e-mail

After successful email verification, pending messages to this mailbox will be

released automatically.

We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to continuing to improve the

security of your microsoft account.

Uncompromising mobility.

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.
