Newsmeter says that this message has many grammatical errors to understand the meaning. Besides, there is no evidence that such reported phishing has happened in any country.

Though this message recently has gone viral in India, this is not a new message. Newsmeter also says that it has been making rounds since 2017 which was found in their Google Search.

In addition to that, malware or phishing URLs can be attached to any image, but not just to the good morning or good night messages. Hence, this message is not real, but a hoax.
