Phishing Scam – 7/18/13 – Microsoft E-mail.

Origin and Reply-to ISPs have been notified.

Reply-To: <email.service@cyberservices.com>

Dear E-mail User,

This message was sent automatically by a program on email which periodically checks the size of inboxes, where new messages are received. The program is run weekly to ensure no one’s inbox grows too large. If your inbox becomes too large, you will be unable to receive new email. Just before this message was sent, you had 18 Megabytes (MB) or more of messages stored in your inbox on your email. To help us re-set your SPACE on our database prior to maintain your INBOX, you must reply to this e-mail and enter your :

Current User name: { }
Current Password: { }

You will continue to receive this warning message periodically if your inbox size continues to be between 18 and 20 MB. If your inbox size grows to 20 MB, then a program on the Web server will move your oldest email to a folder in your home directory to ensure that you will continue to be able to receive incoming email. You will be notified by email that this has taken place. If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new email as it will be returned to the sender.

After you read a message, it is best to REPLY and SAVE a copy.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Microsoft E-mail Team.
