    I have received an e-mail purportedly from Outlook saying that I have requested my hotmail a/c to be closed which will do in 21 days if I do not reply to their questions which are, my user name and password.

    Is this a scam?

    Hi John,

    Yes, it's called a phishing scam. Report and delete the email.

    Never reply to an email like that which asks for your personal information.
