Fake email from Chase Bank (Phishing)

This is a fake email claiming to be from Chase Bank. They say that your account has been locked and you need to click on a link and enter your information to get it unlocked. I do not have an account with Chase Bank so I know that this is a scam. I also know that its a scam because banks will address you by your full name. I have omitted the link but when I bring my cursor up to the original email link it gives me a name that is different from a Chase Bank website. The email address this scam came from is chasemorgan12003@outlook.com.
