Beware of "Hotmail Someone Just Used your Password to Sign into Your Profile" Phishing Scam

The "Someone just used your password to try to sign in to your profile" email message below, which claims a sign-in attempt was blocked for 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.

Please continue below.

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. And, if they want to check their accounts' activity, they should go to https://account.live.com/activity.
