    Microsoft would never email you about something like that. It's a scam.

    I think you already know that this email is a scam. We all get scam emails every day about Norton (or McAfee) renewals to subscriptions we don't have, coinbase transfers when we don't have an account there, warnings from banks where we don't have an account or credit card, non-existent PayPal charges. You name it, some scammer has already tried to scam you to give up your credentials, or send money, etc.

    And never, ever click on a link or call a phone number in one of these scammer rmails.

    I get multiple daily password reset warnings for all my email /social media accounts seemingly originating from various parts of the world. I'm waiting for us to colonise the Moon /Mars so i start getting them from there.

    The Nigerian Prince scam was found taking a turn upwards to the stars, seeking your help to bring a poor lonely astronaut home.

    I don't know about that. I'm signed up with Efax. The only faxes I get are scams.
