Thanks for choosing SKY,
The link in the fake email message goes to a fake webpage which will ask the recipients, who have clicked on the link, for their email address, user name and password, claiming the information is needed to revalidate their email accounts. But, once the information is entered, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the fake Sky Mail web page and email message, who will use it to hijack the email accounts and use them fraudulently.
If you were tricked into entering your SKY Mail credentials on the fake website, please change your Sky Mail password immediately.
Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.
