The link in the email message goes to a fake Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL or other email providers' website, which will steal the visitors' usernames and passwords by asking them to sign-in into their email accounts on the same website. If the visitors attempt to sign-in, their email account usernames and passwords (credentials) will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts and use them fraudulently.
Help protect against phishing scams, online users advised to go directly to their email accounts instead of clicking on a link in an email message. And, if there is something wrong with their accounts, it will be shown to them after signing into. This will prevent online users from visiting phishing websites disguised as legitimate ones.
Online users who were tricked by the phishing email should change their email account password immediately, before their email accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently cybercriminals.
