Hotmail Account Alert By “Windows Live Team”

I received a phishing email purportedly from “Windows Live Team” with the email address dhb79@hotmail.com (yes, SPAM them!) saying that this email has been sent to all Hotmail account holders and they are doing “housekeeping” by closing down inactive Hotmail accounts and if we would like to keep our Hotmail account, we are to reply to them within two weeks with the following information:

* Hotmail ID: …………………………
* Password: …………………………..
* Date of Birth: ……………………….
* Country Or Territory: …………….

Well, you know, no matter how obvious some things look, there would surely be people who would fall into this trap, perhaps due to fear that their account would really be closed or something.

Anyway, this is just an alert to let everyone know that there is an email like this in circulation and that we should be careful in what comes through our mail box. Always avoid clicking on links in email, even if they are from people we know.
