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.
