Remember, if you enter your email account's username and password on the bogus website, it will be sent to the scammers behind the scam. With access to your account, these scammers can change your password and lock you out of it.
Also remember, if you receive any email message about your email account, instead of clicking on any the link in it, please sign into your account by going directly to your email address provider's website.
E.g. if you have a Hotmail address, go directly to your account using the following links: www.live.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com and sign in from there; doing this, will ensure that you are not on a fake website. Once signed in, any important message or notification will be displayed to you.
Now, if you were tricked into clicking on the link in the malicious email message and have entered your email account's username and password on the fake or phishing website that the link took you to, please change your email account password immediately.
