    Hi guys,

    I have been receiving un-solicited emails from "[email protected]" advising that "immediate attention is Required" in relation to my Windows Live Hotmail account has been growing really fast. Are such messages legitimate? They go to my junk folder which makes me wonder.

    Thanks for your help.

    Keep it there, or delete.

    They are not legit and email addresses are commonly spoofed anyways so the source email address is nothing to go by.
