E-Mail to steal your info.

    General discussion

  • I received this e-mail and I read it today and I thought I'd post it up here so that people watch out although if you're smart enough to not give out your info just like that or you can read then you won't fall for it but it's always good to spread the word and maybe the Windows Live group can deal with this or these people. Here's the full and exact e-mail I got:

    Ok so now you see how this people try to steal your info. Now I know this has always and WILL always exist but I rather post so everyone sees what people try to do and I'm pretty sure there will be some people that believe it.

    This e-mail was sent from this address: motherhen28721@hotmail.com and says To: members_servicealert2226@live.com and they name themselves Windows Live Team. So just spread the word so maybe someone does something about this.
