Default Suspect E- mail

I got an e-mail today from someone claiming to be Jeff Hookway with the e-mail address djaozan@plataran.com, asking for payment(amount not specified) and followed by a really long link to click on where I could see my statement. Something looked a little off about it so I didn't click the link. Is this legit? Has anyone else gotten similar e-mails?

Do not click or reply chances are 99 out of 100 its scam to either put a virus in your computer or get info. Use the pm mail to mail direct if you think its real. I get this type and ones that say "I think you will enjoy this? " with a link to click on and a KNOWN email address for the sender Every time the senders account has been hacked. Watch it!

I got the same thing and knew it was a scam/spam email.

I forwarded the email to Jeff so he was aware of it.

Here is a photo of the email address I got when I clicked on Jeff's email address to see if it was really his. Was NOT !
