    Phishing. When in doubt, do a search for scam plus a key word from the domain, say windowslive.

    Any email from anywhere that purports to require you to enter a password must be treated with the deepest suspicion.

    A recent spam to me with the subject in all CAPS claimed to be from the FBI and that they would come get me if I didn't reply. Yikes, they must have found out about my brodening. :)

    Anything that has spelling mistakes (messanger) should put you on high alert. Anything that asks you for your password: get the f*** out of there.
