Today I opened my Hotmail account and read an extremely high quality (but highly fraudulent) email allegedly from the Windows Live Hotmail team. Even I paused for a second, because they said if I don’t reply within 48 hours they would shut down my account. But no legitimate business would ask me for my password or DOB etc., so of course it is fake. I hate to think what these guys do to the people who do reply with full disclosure.
Be careful out there folks!
