I got an email from this address: postmaster.verification.service4@outlook.com


Attached is a screen shot of the email.


When I click the "verify now" button, it takes me to this web page with an absurdly long code after that:           data:text/html;base64,


the web page asks me to sign into my Microsoft account. image 2 displays this page. Note: none of the links work except the "sign in" link. I did not put my password into here because I'm suspicious.


Take a look and tell me what you guys think?

Looks like a phishing attempt. Bad English is used....example....Security alert your microsoft.


If you still have that email....check by viewing message source.

EDIT: Don't click on any ads in that link


I got an email today purported to be from SpamFightersProgram@hotmail.com

I marked it as phishing scam. So, you can't be too careful. NEVER click on a link in an email unless you are 100% sure where it will take you.

NEVER open an email if you don't recognize the sender. NEVER open an attachment unless you are expecting it and you are sure of

what is in it.
