Thanks, wainuitech. How do I identify that it is spam? I dare not click the link.

The email is from one of my nephew (his name) who we never contacted for many, many years! The email has no contents other than the above link and his name at the end.

Any indication that his email address has been hacked?

Seems very likely to me..... No personal message, and the fact you’d not heard anything from him in a while.
