The following is a scam in which the scammer is hoping to trick the victim into clicking a link which will be used to steal the victim’s personal information. You can tell this is a scam because the scammer’s email address/ name does not match the signature nor is the email from someone the victim knows. You can also tell it is a scam because of just the link and no other information inside the email. And the mispellings on sincerely.
If you have received an email like this, please delete it.
