Marketo adding content to links; breaking them

Hello everyone,

 

We’re having an issue with our links, where Marketo is adding to our URLs and sending users to a 404 page. The links which are breaking are pulling in a custom token based on the individual user, while our other links are working fine. We’ve also disabled link tracking.

 

Here’s what the link should look like:  

www.lucidchart.com/users/acceptFreeMonthInvitation?token={{lead.Invitation URL}}

 

Here’s the link when sending a sample or live email:

The broken links lands to a 404 page. Removing the text highlighted in red directs to the correct url. These links are used in our critical transactional emails and we’re seeing a lot of errors for our users. Is this a known bug and is there a known fix? Has anyone else encountered this?
