MSN email

From time to time I get a text message on my mobile phone to say that my "Microsoft Account  might have been accessed" and suggesting that I go into my account with the link provided.  Of course I would not do that.  But is this sort of message real, or is to catch some unwitting sleepy head off his or her guard.  Thank u for your advise.

Your instincts are right.  This is not real.  If in doubt, enter the url into the browser yourself, never click the link provided in anything you are suspect of.

These days links can be made to look like they are legitimate, when in fact they are not.
