Beware of "Microsoft Email Shut-Down In Process" Phishing Scam

Beware of "Microsoft Email Shut-Down In Process" Phishing Scam

Microsoft users who have received emails claiming their email shutdown is in process and will be terminated are asked to delete the same emails. This is because the emails are fakes or phishing scams being sent by cybercriminals to frighten the recipients into following the instructions in them, by tricking them into believing they will stop receiving emails and their accounts will be locked or disabled.

Please continue below.

This why Microsoft Windows Live, Hotmail or Outlook users should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to www.outlook.com, www.live.com or www.hotmail.com and sign in from there instead. Once they have signed in, they will be alerted to important notifications or changes, if there are any.
