If Microsoft says your mailbox is full…

If you get email allegedly from Microsoft saying that your mailbox is full, it must be true, right?


The current version of this scam includes a link to a Google Docs form to make it easy for the scammer to harvest your account information. If you submit the information the form asks for, you will have enabled to scammer to log in to your account and either steal it or use it to spoof your account to send out further scam email messages.

Don’t click the link if you saw this message! (Click on the image to see a full size version of this email scam.)

Just delete it. Do not follow the link. Do not complete the Google Form.
