Email from Windows Live

I had this in my inbox this morning.

Hotmail wouldn't ask for personal information like date of birth or password.

If anyone else receives this email I would advise that you delete it, I have reported this email to hotmail.

I don't like posting email addresses but in this case I will so you know who sent it.

Senders email addy:

j_shybee@hotmail.com

Strange enough. Recommend you report this to Microsoft.

P.S. You are using the webpage version of Live Mail?

I mentioned that I reported the email to hotmail so it's the same thing really.

Yep, using the webmail version of windows live, had this account for over 10 years without any problems.

If you get this in your inbox I would also suggest changing your password. :thumbsup:

Oops, didn't notice that. :P

I personally perfer an email client, such as winmail/wlmail. Having another tier of checking for phishing emails always feels better. 0:)

seriously? i had to close my old hotmail down because i got so much spam and phishing emails. mum had to do the same recently with her hotmail :huh:

but wow, that's pretty amazing.

Just to shed some light on this, Hotmail will never ask for your details, why would they when they have it on their server? The CAPTCHA has no captcha logo and how would the captcha be able to track what is written in the reply? exactly. just be wary people research before you respond

I get one of these every one or two months. I just report them as a phishing scam and go on with my life. And, as the others noted. Neither Microsoft nor any other reputable organisation/website will ever ask you to put your password in an e-mail.

The absolute failure of scammers to use proper English is always a dead give away.

Thanks you.
