    Tech Discussion: Strange new email scam
    #1
    I hope I picked the correct forum for this thread.

    I just received an email which I believe is some kind of scam. But I wanted to post it here so that I could warn everyone if it is indeed a scam. Otherwise, I was hoping someone here might be able to examine it and tell me just what it really is.

    It is supposedly from Microsoft - which was the big ringing alarm bell to my mind.

    The single line in my inbox read as follows: Microsoft account team - Verify your email address - Microsoft account Verify your email address To finish setting up this Microsoft account, we just need

    The full message reads as follows:

    Microsoft account
    Verify your email address
    To finish setting up this Microsoft account, we just need to make sure this email address is yours.
    Verify Alishibaz@gmail.com
    If you didn't make this request, click here to cancel.
    Thanks,
    The Microsoft account team

    I got a big laugh from "If you didn't make this request, click here to cancel."

    I wonder how many poor people will actually click on that link and suffer Lord knows what for doing that. Holy Shit!

    If they weren't so stupid, I might have actually fallen for this.


    Please let me know what you think about this?

    I think it was a team of people who sent this out and one of them was mentally challenged.

    ...because you can register for a Microsoft account with any email address...
