From: bubblyrat

Hi !! I just opened my "Hotmail" application,and was confronted by a MASSIVE and OVERWHELMING demand for ALL my personal data,with the threat that otherwise my Hotmail account would be shut down within 24 hours. The standard of English used was,to be honest,beneath contempt , to say the least, but I can see how some people might be "spooked" -----Don't go there !! ( Bastards !!)

This crap has been going on for years. Poor English is one of the clues to the scam.
