    A lot of people would be fooled but the grammar errors are bad enough that I would not even consider the possibility that it was legitimate.

    Thanks for the alert. I must say the 'look' is deceptive but I simply have learnt not to trust the word "Alert" coming from email. A few symptoms should already 'alert' the careful reader that something is "phishy" (fishy). Yup, pun intended.

    1. From anetadianemims@hotmail.como_O
    2. But I thought this was coming from Dick Craddock? Or is the picture there simply to add up to the spice?
    3. Exciting new features are coming? But then..."so we are shutting down.."

    Even if one misses all that,

    4. An email from Hotmail asking for my username and password? That's so believable.:rolleyes:

    Average folks would fall for this but most of us here shouldn't. It's the same old story imo.
