i have heard alot about this email going around stating its from xbox research team anyone if its real or scam?
It's a scam.
There's no such thing as an 'Xbox Research Team.'
Also, Microsoft's email uses @Microsoft.com instead of say, "Gmail.com."
yeah but its a microsoft email not gmail im not dumb lol i would know if it was from somethingdot@gmail that it wasn't microsoft
If ever in doubt, do not open it.
Contact @XboxSupport on twitter. They will be able to tell you if it is a valid MS email.
Yea don't open it, I almost got a virus from that.
Just scan it with antivirus and open it in a sandbox or virtual machine and screw with him if its a scam :)
