Hi cmw3324,


Welcome to Trend Micro Home Users Community!


I can confirm that the link you have provided is a scam/dangerous link.


It may help resolve the issue by deleting your browser cache.


For the ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR, this is a Google Chrome error that may be caused by an incorrect date and time. 


I also suggest that you enable the Trend Micro toolbar so you can see if the website you are trying to visit is safe or not.


I hope this helps.
