Microsoft Office Form Scams

Microsoft Office Form at forms.office.com is legitimate, but it is being abused by cybercriminals. Cybercriminals create fake forms and send out emails to their potential victims asking them to go to fake forms. If the potential victims go to the form and fill out the requested personal information or account credentials on it, that information will be sent to the cybercriminals. Once the cybercriminals have received the stolen personal information and account credentials, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' accounts, hijack the account and use them fraudulently.
