Beware of Tricky Emails

Just now, i got an email from saying that my account will be suspended for security reason if i am not clicking a links ( to verify that it's my official email. Strange, since my account at is only an alias which will link to my primary email at gmail and i never used that account to send any email address, just to receive some notification from some of's services. So, i look at the link property and it links to, which i can guess it's some kind of social engineering method to attract people to click on it. I guess it's a link which can cause damage to your computer, so please beware before opening such kind of email.

One more note, never uses PHP for their services. That's what on my mind at the first time i saw this email. Funny.

Here's the email property:
