Hotmail email account deletion - scam? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received an mail today, addressed to user(at)microsoftonlline(dot)com from "Team Hotmail" saying I had requested deletion of my email.  I have made no such request.  The email contained a "CANCEL REQUEST" line to be clicked on if I wished to retain my email.  This looks to me suspiciously like a scam or phishing attempt.  Can anyone validate this email for me or confirm that it is a scam?
