This is a mail to my my fellow-hubbers to notify them that someone may be sending the following letter to obtain data about hotmail users so that s/he can use the account for illegal activities . The e-mail is apparently from :'Window Live Team (email@example.com) ' and probably a spam ?
Here is a quote :
'Dear Account User,
This Email is from Hotmail Customer Care and we are sending it to every Hotmail Email User Accounts Owner for safety. we are having congestion due to the anonymous registration of Hotmail accounts so we are shutting down some Hotmail accounts and your account was among those to be deleted.

The Windows Live Team'
I shall be thankful to receive opinion of my fellow hubbers.
I just checked my Hotmail account and I have not received this. I would contct the windows live team about it if I were you.
Most, if not all companies will never ask for a password in an email. I would report this to Microsoft as Phishing.....
For one thing starting multiple forum threads about the same topic is against the forum rules here.
I've checked, and I don't have this mail. Besides, no reputable business would ever ask for a password. I'd report it if I were you.
DON'T CLICK ON IT or enter anything...I received the exact same 'message from Hotmail' and fell for it. PHISHING SCAM all the way. Within a day I could no longer access my email at all, lost my contact list and many, many letters.
PLEASE-I promise it's a scam. This happened to me only about a month ago.
MyWebs is right!
