The link in the messages will take the recipients who clicked on it, to a fake BBC website (thedietbbc.com), which has a fake article about Garcinia Cambogia, a weight loss product.
We do not recommend purchasing the products on the fake website or following the instructions on it. So far, all the email messages that we have received contain links that goes the fake BBC website promoting the weight loss product.
The scammers may change the link so that it goes to a malicious website, which will infect your computer with a virus or some other malware. The link may also be changed to go to a phishing website that will trick you into signing in with your username and password. Once you have attempted to sign in, your username and password will be sent to the scammers who have created the phishing website, who will use it to gain access to your account. They will then use your account maliciously.
