Fake AICPA emails

As always, hover over the link and it’s obviously fake.  The text of the message is:

Dear accountant officer,

We have been informed of your alleged assistance in income tax refund infringement  for one of your employers. According to AICPA Bylaw Section 765 your Certified Public Accountant status can be cancelled in case of the aiding of submitting of a misguided or fraudulent tax return on the member’s or a client’s behalf.

Please familiarize yourself with the notification below and respond to it within 7 days. The failure to respond within this time-frame will result in termination of your Accountant license.”

Go to the website and you will be hit with the Help Center URL Validation Vulnerability described here.
