Yes, but why would anyone click the link? We as a society have been sending email for almost 20 years now, some of us much longer, yet people must still be clicking the link they get in these emails. After all, those behind the link would stop using it, if it didn’t work.

Are people just stupid? Probably not, I don’t think most people fall for this more than once. So by now everyone should be aware of it. Those who clicked, have learned not to. Yet we continue to get these emails. This one most likely was a hacked account. It’s from Yahoo, so hacked account is my guess. The motivation of just emailing a link, is what I’m curious about.

Is it the Mystery? People are curious about the unknown, so they click?

 - This looks typical of certain malware that infects your email and hijacks your address book to send all its spam messages to so that people will click the link and wind up with someone else controlling their PC.

I doubt it was intentional by the owner of the email account. Usually there’s some explanation if it’s intentional.

I have to wonder who would click on a lone link in an email, but it must work, or they wouldn’t do it. The marketer in me is intrigued.

Spam. Please make sure to check your acct for hacking. If this was intentional please do not use this email as a sales tool
