Remember, the link in the fake message goes to a phishing website that will ask visitors to sign-in with their email account credentials. If the visitors attempt to sign-in, their email account usernames and passwords will be sent to the cyber crimials behind the scam. Once the cyber criminals receive the stolen credentials they will use it to gain access to the visitors' accounts and use them fraudulently.
Online users who have already been tricked by the scam are asked to change their email account password immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.
