The link in the email message goes to a fake or phishing website, which will attempt to trick the cyber-criminals' potential victims into signing in with their usernames and passwords on it. If the potential victims enter their email account usernames and passwords on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts.
If you have received the same email message, please go directly to your email account instead of clicking on the links in the email message. And, if there is anything wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing in. If you were tricked by the phishing email, please change your email account password.
