    Default Hotmail users pls take note

    There seems to be some emails asking for hotmail details..

    Probably it's a scam to farm passwords as most service provider will not ask for your password to be sent via email. Please take note and be careful.

    Not surprising, given that Hotmail is probably one of the most spammed and hacked email service provider nowadays.

    Just report to hotmail administrator, so that they can investigate and take necessary legal action.
