Yesaterday and again today (Tuesday 11 May) I have received an e-Mail from "Windows Live team". The subject is "Reset your Windows Live Password". I have no idea as to what this may be about and I have NOT opened either of these mails. Are they some sort of a scam? Should I open them to see what they are about but I do not want to expose my PC unnecessarily. Has anyone else received any similar e-mails from the "Windows Live Team"? Any advice would be welcome. Many thanks Buckland.
Woolwell, Many thanks for your response. I now have confirmation that the e-mail from "Windows Live Team" is definitely a scam in fact PHISHING. I searched in Google and it seems many others have received the e-mail. One correspondent quotes the text of the e-mail which is badly worded and put together and demands too much information. I had not opened mine but at least my curiosity is satisfied as to its contents. Thanks again your reply and your guess was correct. Buckland.
Thanks Frankmac and VCR97 for your advice. Have sent the funny-mails where they belong but is there no Norton or McAfee, etc., type of protection that can identify these scams and reject them. Pity nothing can be done about the congenital idiots who waist everyone's time sending this feeble stuff. A bounce-back death ray would be ideal. Regards, Buckland.
