The link in the email message goes to a phishing website that will ask visitors to sign-in with their email account credentials. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the visitors' credentials being sent to the cyber criminals responsible for the scam.
Once the cyber crooks have gotten their potential victims' email account credentials they will gain access to, hijack and use them fraudulently. Therefore, online users who have already been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to immediately change their email account passwords before their accounts are hijacked.
