Genuine Email from Microsoft

We’re all so used to getting scam emails and phone calls from nefarious individuals claiming to be from Microsoft that we’re now suspicious of the real thing. And quite frankly, we’re better off with our hyper-vigilance – ALWAYS BE SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE!

So I now find myself advising people when an email from Microsoft is real, like the updated Services Agreement they’ve recently sent out. This is actually a good learning opportunity. If you look at who the email is from up the top, it actually says ‘Microsoft’. Also, you’ll notice it’s not asking you to do anything and the grammar is 100% correct.

Unless you actually want to read the updated Services Agreement, you can safely delete this. You don’t need to do anything with it.

However I will give one note of caution, scammers are notorious for replicating genuine emails, so don’t take my word for it, check your emails yourself.
