The link actually points to: https://mandrillapp.com/track/click/30127960/us4-mailchimp.com?p=[string] where the [string] part presumably denotes private information about your email address and when it was sent.

Now the domain seems like a real domain and yet Google have it marked as fraudulent so not sure what has happened here.

We also see this email on the same day:

Once again, marked as deceptive by Google and yet pointing to us2-mailchimp.com

So what is happening here?

Link is to: https://us2-mailchimp.com/billing.php?e=addres@mailsdmain.com 

Marked as dangerous in Chrome.

Have they managed to register a domain with mailchimp in the title?
