Microsoft Account Team - Password Reset
 
 


I just deleted a message headed Microsoft Account Team - Password Reset.

 

I did open the message out of fear of missing something.

I found something in the text that was inconsistent with it coming from Microsoft.

There were two links in the message, one to confirm the password change, one to say, in essence, No, it wasn't me.

 

If you get a similar message, and you have NOT changed any passwords with Microsoft in the last 24 hours, be very careful.

Facebook has a similar scam happening.

You receive a notice in your e-mail saying YOU have a new facebook message, click here to log in.
It mirrors your account but when you log in it simply collects your password etc and does not take you to facebook.

You have to be so careful about responding to any e-mail. I know my mother falls for this stuff often, she is quite trusting and gets scammed often. :(

I get those sometimes.

Some of them can be quite convincing, with the correct logos and appropriate verbiage and all.

But some of them have atrocious grammar and spelling. It's an instant tipoff. Those ones crack me up.
