Hello and thanks for your question. I look forward to assisting you today with the best answer possible.

Please ignore this email. It is a scam email.

Don't call them.

These types of messages are generally used by scammers using the name of windows live.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 year ago.

Windows live will never call you or email you unless you've raised a support ticket.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 year ago.

The big mistake they are doing which makes them a scammer is that they are emailing you from windows live and they don't even know that you use a MAC.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 year ago.

Once you call them, these scammers will have remote session with your computer, and then they can take the control of your computer.They will install keyloggers,malwares etc. and will steal all steal information from your computer.
