It looks good…and Almost reads well enough to fall for it

So now there appears to be a rash of messages coming from “Microsoft” claiming that my account may have been compromised.

When you are reading this on a device where you have multiple email accounts and don’t take the time to figure out which mailbox it’s actually in…you might fall for it.

However looking closely, there is usually that ONE word that is misspelled Smile

As always, please take a moment to read these messages closely before you act on them.  It’s called “scareware” for a reason…please don’t be scared by them!
