after becoming a member here, I tend to question EVERYTHING . Reading everyone's opinion on so many various subjects have made me realize that I am to trusty and need to be a little bit more on the look-out. Now I received the following email yesterday and don't know WHAT to think.
Is this for real or is somone actually trying to steal my password :confused: (Maybe I am getting paranoid...).
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. We are sending this email to you so that you can verify and let us know if you still want to use this account. If you are still interested please confirm your account by filling the space below.Your User name, password, date of birth and your country information would be needed to verify your account.
Due to the congestion in all Hotmail users and removal of all unused Hotmail Accounts, Hotmail would be shutting down all unused Accounts, You will have to confirm your E-mail by filling out your Login Information below after clicking the reply button, or your account will be suspended within 24 hours for security reasons.
I know, I should not even have a hotmail account but this is one I've had for many, many years. And, I use it on a daily basis besides my other accounts.
What's your take, am I just being overly paranoid or is this actually some kind of scam? Thanks for your input .
