Default Scam Read

I just wanted to know if anyone has recieved an email from
msn_cares_team1@hotmail.com

This person says to send your email address and password so it can be fixed.

Had anyone got this email?

I replied and said I Had Phoned The Police and now this character had added me to his MSN

well I wouldn't be too worried. As long as u got a firewall u are quite safe. And if they try to send u any files, don't accept!

U could e-mail hotmail staff about this.

Your probaly wasting your time contacting Hotmail, the ratbags who make accounts to do this sort of crap use bodgy ip addresses. As it was said before you should not have replies to the email in the first place.
