With Father’s Day just around the corner, spammers are capitalizing on the said special event for their malicious activities. Spammed messages promoting replica products as gifts for fathers are making rounds today. It even entices users to place their orders as soon as possible to get the supposedly discount. It has a link, http://{BLOCKED}hinc.com, which Trend Micro detects as malicious.

Users are advised to be wary in opening bogus email promos especially if these came from unknown sources. Purchase online products from legitimate sources only.
