Thousands and thousands of Outlook and Workplace 365 customers warned of compelling Microsoft scams

Spoofing an official-looking Microsoft email address means that even the most savvy and cautious of internet users may be tricked by this latest scam.

As with other similar scams, the message accompanying the scam has urgent and fear-inducing language that will lead a recipient to click on a malicious link.

The target is told that a number of emails are in “quarantine” and that they need to click a link to decide what to do with those offensive messages.

Once a user clicks this link, they will be taken to a fake Office 365 sign-in page asking them to enter legitimate user credentials.

However, this is all part of a trick designed to collect sensitive user data which can then be used to access sensitive information or for resale.

Just last week it was revealed that Office 365 signups were being sold to top executives on the dark internet.
