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 tinyurl.com is listed in
phishing.bad.sites.conf, but it is.
