Fraudsters send bulk messages with fake links, and they may use fake URLs that look similar to real websites or use short links to hide fake URLs.
Common short links are: goo.gl, bit.ly, aka.ms, etc.
Not all short links are fake links. It is recommended to restore the short URL to confirm the real URL before clicking, and determine whether it is the official website.
