Here is one I had never struck!

Received 3 emails from a mob called "netease" in "redmont" "WA", telling me I had exceeded my Hotmail storage allocation and could no longer receive emails until I clicked on a link.
Yeah...sure....funny, I kept receiving emails for the next 5 days in spite of those warnings.

If you google those key words, you will see the top hit is a Microsoft advisor displaying the exact same message received and advising to DELETE IMMEDIATELY. He explains what the scam is.

Anybody else received that "netease" message?
Fred.
