I know, this was not the smart thing to do at ALL. I've never been caught by one of these before. I got an email that said that there was an email added to my security in my microsoft account and of course I clicked the "it wasn't me" and it had me send an email to an address "unrecognized.suspicious.activity@Stuff .com". Of course I did not think about how that was odd before hitting send. I did not give any personal information except my email address (by replying) and I changed my password on my microsoft account. I did this all on my phone. I'm not sure if I need to take anymore steps from here? Do I need to be worried about malware on my phone?
Any help is much appreciated - thank you!

    You can check your account login activity here:

    If everything is okay, the email is not real.

    Yes, it is SCAM and FAKE for sure.
    NEVER reply and do NOT click on link and attachments.
    Right click and mark it as Phishing or Junk and in case it ask you to report it , please do so.
