I recieved an e-mail that has asked me to verify my username, password, date of birth and country of origin. Is this legit?

Not legit. Do not respond to the email.
Read this link for some helpful info on 'phishing emails".

Forward it to Microsoft, then delete, as the other members posted.

This happened via an unsolicited email? Why would Microsoft ever send such a thing. Sounds phishy.
The only verification I ever went through was registering a software product. That didn't happen via email.

Thanks for the warning for others. Did your email message have that little butterfly? I've never been asked for any information and I yearly renew my subscription for a membership since I am familiar with their email format and enjoy it. Report the message immediately to Microsoft. All you have to do is copy it and pass on to them. They will take care of that critter in a minute. I don't see the helpful option right now but this is indeed helpful.

Usually, forward the suspicious email to spoof@companyname without opening it. They have the ability to take care of the phishing attempt.
