The wording is correct.  This is the message that is displayed when a 
url is found in the list /etc/MailScanner/phishing.bad.sites.conf.

These are known phishing sites.  This is different from the case where a 
link target and text do not match, which is described as a "possible" fraud.

That said, it is a little strange that is listed in 
phishing.bad.sites.conf, but it is.
