MailGuard has identified a new scam using a fake Office 365 notification email that links to a phishing site; see screenshot above. The scam is designed to steal your Office 365 login credentials.

Recipients of the scam email are informed that their "office email" will be deactivated, and instructed to click on a link in the message to “cancel deactivation.”

The link in this email is actually pointing to the fake login page that asks for Office 365 login data.

The sender address associated with this scam message is: ‘noreply@notifications.com’
