I did not request that my account be deactivated.
I don't want my account deactivated. I keep getting messages from the Security Team that deactivation is in process. Is this genuine or spam?

I received an email (appears to be spam) stating once I opened it within 24 hours they would deactivate my account email@example.com. per my request on 12/27/17. I DID NOT make that request and would not reply to that email. DO NOT deactivate my account.
I do not wish to close my account!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I repeat, I did not request that my account be deactivated!
I am getting emails that say my account is being deactivated and I don't understand why I use my email several times a day.
Will you please look into this for me?

I received an email saying my account deactivation request on 21/01/2018 had been approved. I never asked for my account to be deactivated. This is my primary email and I do not know who to contact about reporting this.

I received an e-mail saying that I requested that my Outlook e-mail account be deactivated & that it WILL be deactivated in 8 days. Is this valid or some kind of scam?? I did NOT make this request!
