Bogus Emails RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Friends, I keep getting emails supposidly from Microsoft/MSN saying that my email account will be deleted unless I fill out the information they request.  That information includes user name, password, date of birth and country.  Who do I report this person to?  They may just find some folks who will send that info to them and then no good will happen.  It looks incredibly real.  Whoever is doing this is not a good person.  Please help me report these crooks.

    Thanks!
