Beware of "Your Account Has Been Hacked Call Now" Phishing Scam

The "Your Account Has Been Hacked Call Now" email message below, which claims unusual activities have been detected on the recipients' Hotmail accounts, is a fake. The fake email message was NOT sent by Microsoft, but by cybercriminals, to steal Microsoft, MSN, Hotmail, Live or Outlook usernames, and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not click on the links or follow the instructions in it. Microsoft email users who have received similar emails and who want to know if there is something actually wrong with their accounts should go directly to www.outlook.com or hotmail.com and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong, or if there is something that needs to be done on their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.


It is recommended that Microsoft Hotmail, Live or Outlook users never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should go directly to www.outlook.com, www.hotmail.com or www.live.com sign-in from there instead.
