    I swore that I was too smart for this to happen but I responded to a supposed Microsoft Hotmail email saying that I had to give certain information or hotmail would shut down. Of course, I checked it out with Microsoft before I filled in the info and it all looked bona fide. However, I am unable to access email, and friends have been getting emails from me with dire circumstances which require that they send money to Spain where I am supposedly starving and passportless. Jeez! If anyone can help me out of this, I have another email address which is **edited out**. The 'c' might be capitalized. Thanks for any help or condolences.

    heyya carolavis, I've edited out your email address, as that's a great way to get added to s spammer list.

    thanks,

    How did you contact Microsoft? Was it from a link or phone number inside that email message?

    If you contacted them with a legitimate Microsoft phone number (outside that email message), then the problem isn't related to that particular email message.
