Windows 7: At it again with the phishing messages from MS

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
At it again with the phishing messages from MS


I received this email again. I wonder how many new users believe that Microsoft sends them email with a
url to update their email and password.??

Dear Windows User,

Your Microsoft Windows Installation record is out of date. Every Windows installation has to be tied to an email account for daily update. Please verify your Email Account.

Failure to verify your email account will result in account suspension. Verify below and follow instruction given.

URL to a fake site about office 2013 and the site is sitting on a spammers site 3seasonsplace
(I removed the url as some misguided individual might click on it._

Thank you,

Microsoft Windows Support

I went to the url with a protected system and it really is convincing graphics and all the right
Microsoft icons.. Damn..

I hope that we can educate everyone that comes here that Microsoft will not send you a message
to put your userid and password to verify that you run windows...

I believe their are people that will fall for that trick.
That is why tricksters keep sending the request to people.
