    possible xbox live phishing email


    Received an email on the 12th, from billing@microsoft warning of automatic renewal of xbox live gold account. Opening 2 links resulted in a 404, but the billing link was blocked by edge:

    I have an ancient xbox account but I do not use xbox live. It is possible a child has enabled a reoccurring gold account with this email, but payment info I'm unaware of. Looks suspicious.

    Seems like it, but the other 2 links were 404, and tonight's attempt in FF (allowing the billing.Microsoft.com with NS) resulted in this, as well as the Edge warning posted above.

    A bunch of insiders were hit late spring with a bogus MS survey about win 10. So, I figured I'd post about it.

    The url in has a ./ after the .com - this could be why
