Please do not share any information.
- The funniest part is that it says it’s from “WindowsLive Team”. The actual mail come from “Windows Live Team“.
- If you hover your cursor on the “WindowsLive Team”, the ID would show as “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Whereas the real mail ID happens to be some thing like “email@example.com”
- There is no place or hyper- link to read the “Privacy Statement” online or even other- wise.
- The entire e- mail is typed in Bold and at places Italicized too!
SPAM the email asap, and kindly do not reply!
