You have 9 pending incoming messages

Dear,

You have 9 pending incoming messages as of May 23 , 2018 12:00 AM (UTC) which are listed below along with the actions that can be taken:

Click here to Release to Mailbox: Send the message to your Inbox.

The link in the email message goes to a phishing website that tricks potential victims into signing in. If the potential victims attempt to sign-into the fake website, it will send their usernames and passwords to the cyber-criminals behind the phishing scam, who will use the information to hijack the victims' accounts and use them fraudulently.

Therefore, online users who have received email messages like the one above, should always go directly to their email accounts instead of clicking on the links in the same email messages. If there is anything wrong with their accounts, it will be shown to them after signing into.

Now, online users who were tricked by phishing scams should change their passwords immediately.
