Spam email from "IT Helpdesk service"

Recently, I received this email below:

Helpdesk Service Center requires your immediate re-activation of your Email account. This is to improve and to Upgrade your Email Account and to keep your Account Updated. Inability to complete this procedure will render your account inactivate (You cant send or receive mails). Activate your Account by completing the survey procedure. CLICK HERE : to activate your Account now.

IT-Helpdesk Service.

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public-records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.

Obviously, it is a spam. No concrete information was included in this email, instead, it invites me to click a link whose purpose is known.

I searched the word "IT Helpdesk service", but I hit no exact case as this spam, perhaps because these words are much too common. Finally, I reached this site.

If you are not familiar with this kind of spams, I strongly recommend you not to click carelessly.
