    Today I received an email supposedly from the Hotmail administrators that my Hotmail account was nearing its limits and a link was furnished where I could reset it by providing my passwrood and other details. Sounds fishy to me. Why have I not received an announcement from the real Hotmail people advising of this possible scheme by those trying to gain access to my information?

    Hi Tony,

    This sounds like a phishing scam, an attempt to steal your password so spammers can use your account to send spam.

    Never reply to or click links in an email that asks for your password.

    Mark the email as Junk / Spam.
