But the first part of the link would have the initial site so you can tell if it is legitimate. But I think I read sometime ago about links that only vary in something like a punctuation mark so the link may look extremely close to the authentic one. Better not to follow links in questionable messages unless you are sure they are safe.
Gene, but it could be a link which redirects to something else…
I didn’t see that you had provided a copy of the message. It does answer the question. I still would treat it as phishing. Also, you can see the underlying link they want you to go to. I expect that it will not be to the web site. It may lead to a site that looks like the web site. I don’t know what e-mail program you are using but if you tell us, you should be able to be advised how to see that actual link, not the words that are displayed in the link.
