Today, lots of people received (at least most of my contacts) fake and spam email that claim to be coming from Windows Live Hotmail but in fact the email was a spam sent by svgandhi_49. It seems to be an Indian ID, since the email was forwared we couldn’t track IP of the source. Here, follows the received Hotmail Spam email (ditto) that tried to hack hotmail / Windows Live Mail password. Please, be aware of such emails.
