Is this a legitimate employee for Windows Live team (* address email is removed from the privacy *)

A warning message came to my Junk mailbox about the status of my account, but it requires a lot of personal information.  How can I know if this
It is a legitimate site?

Hello

Its a SCAM!

In the United States, you can contact the FBI, Attorney general, the police authorities and consumer
Watch groups. Arm yourself with knowledge.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), funded in part by the Bureau of Justice Assistance
(BJA).

No, Microsoft would not email or call you unsolicited. Or they would know if there were any errors
on your computer. So those are the frauds or scams to get your money or worse to steal your
identity.

Avoid scams that use the Microsoft name fraudulently - Microsoft is not unsolicited
phone calls to help you fix your computer
