Probably worth contacting your bank / card provider to check if any transactions have been made with that date :)

Looks like a DVD has been ordered? http://www.rpm-motorsport.com/cart3.cfm?CategoryID=category01&I1.x=97&I1.y=6

I was checking my account today to see what money i had in and no transactions on that date, nut there are transactions for the day after which i made, which makes me think tis a scam

Can't see exactly how it could be a scam - its more a receipt (there isn't a link to click on etc). Possibly someone entered the wrong email address or something when ordering? I'd check with the bank on the phone (they can access more recent transactions I believe).

Actually, forget that, it probably is a scam or virus - looks like fake WorldPay transactions are used as a way of hiding viruses (http://www.dynamoo.com/blog/2008/10/worldpay-card-transaction-confirmation.html). You didn't open any attachments did you?

Think you'd be better off speaking to your bank first - if you've emptied your bank account and this transaction does present itself for payment it might make you overdrawn and that'll cost you - give the bank a ring just in case

[COLOR=DarkRed]Don't click on the link![/COLOR]

What is the exact email address of the sender and email contents (including the url of the link)?

I would check with you card provider immediately, as something similar happened to me (not same company) and my Account became overdrawn. The money was not taken from my Account for a few days, but even though I reported it to my provider, they could not stop it going through ( I don't know why??). It took several weeks to resolve, but I was refunded eventually. It caused me a lot of stress, so I do feel for you.
Good luck

Can't you check on the Microsoft website to see if they say anything about phishing and then forward them this suspicious email - if it is a scam then I think they normally e mail you back or something. Or if you can't find anything about phishing e mails then contact Microsoft and ask them do they want you to change your password. I it was me I wouldn't click on the link or open any attachments. Check it out thoroughly first. Good luck

I'd remove that now! Sorry, shouldn't have asked you to post it here really. Go to the main MSN site and use reset your password from there, then do so for any other site where you use the same password. A pain in the rear, but sounds like someone already may have some of your details.

any further helpo from any1?

Don't change anything until you are defo virus free as they may have a thing to see what you change it to, rather than the b**trds having the current password. There are loads of these flying about ( I work at the bank), don't worry too much as they are trying to get you to give them some details, if they had them they would have used them already.
#22
Someone obviously used the wrong email address and then tried to get into yours when they realised by trying to reset your password. Doesnt really matter as they should recieve what they paid for still.
