The Windows Live Hotmail Team


Obviously if you opened it in IE you'd see that the source was non M$ as there is that Windows logo besides stuff from them. I have to admit I have opened stuff like it in the past. But all my Hotmail is opened on IE these days and suspect stuff in the junk folder where any possible source of nasties such as pictures and links are edited out.

The threatening tone and undue haste required is bad enough but it doesn't even sound like an official letter.

"Warning!!!" As if.

"Account owner that refuses to update his/her account…" Not exactly good English is it? Even allowing for an education in the United States.

But will anyone respond with their private details?
You bet!
