In specific reference to these, yes, they are spam and fake.

I believe that Gmail and Yahoo are now actively marking them as spam, from
reports of smart users of those services. I've not received the emails
myself, but I've had a few forwards sent to me.

WordPress.org doesn't do that sort of thing. Obviously. Please pass it
along that these are fake and the links contain malware. Also pass along
basic malware-sniffing-smartness, if possible. Better for the world in
general, sort of thing.
