"Microsoft Account Team" Scam Emails
Would you share this Article with others? +
Cybercriminals are attempting to steal Microsoft account users' account credentials by sending them fake "Microsoft Account Team" emails. The fake emails are phishing scams created by cybercriminals to steal Microsoft, MSN, Hotmail, Live or Outlook usernames and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not to 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, may go directly to www.outlook.com, www.hotmail.com or www.live.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 account.microsoft.com, www.outlook.com, www.hotmail.com or www.live.com sign-in from there instead.
