The link in the fake email goes to a fake Blockchain website located at hxxps://blockchafn.info. The legitimate website is located at https://www.blockchain.com/. This is why Blockchain account holders should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their accounts. They should go directly to https://www.blockchain.com/ and sign-in from there instead.
Blockchain account holders who have been tricked by the scam are asked to attempt to change their passwords and contact Blockchain for help.
