The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake or phishing website, which will attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If visitors attempt to sign into the phishing website with their usernames and passwords, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts. The hijacked email accounts will then be used by cybercriminals fraudulently.

Remember, if you receive email messages like these, please go directly to your email account instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is something wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing in. And, if you were tricked by one of these phishing scams, please change your password immediately before your email account is hijacked.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers in email samples on this website may have been impersonated.
