I got a message from "Window Live Team"(notice the spelling) this morning stating our Hotmail account was deleted, and I would need to verify all my info to re-instate the account. It looked too suspicious to me, so I checked it out with Microsoft....


Watch out for stoopid crap like this...the example shown on the Microsoft page is exactly the one I got. I noticed the return e-mail addy was for something like joeblowfineart@hotmail.com...that's what really tipped me off it was a phish fry....
This may be old news to some, but it is apparently STILL going around...

Just a friendly public service announcement...you will now be returned to your regularly scheduled program....
