Cyber criminals are sending out fake Amazon emails telling you that there is a problem with your order.
Customers are being told to resolve the problem by clicking on a link to confirm certain information. The scam warns victims failure to do so will freeze their Amazon account.
The email directs people to a replica Amazon website. These websites are excellent forgeries and can fool even experts. It makes it very easy to fall for the scam.
Once on the fake website the customer/victim is asked to input personal information. When customers/victims have entered in their details, they are asked to click a ‘Save & Continue’ button. This then takes them to Amazon’s official website making it even more difficult for most people to suspect or detect any fraudulent activity.
Don’t fall for this scam. If you receive this email contact Amazon customer support to check your account. Do not click on any link in the email and don’t use the phone number in the email. That could be the scammer as well. Even if the email is real you are better off being safe than sorry. You can learn more about this scam and how to protect yourself by visiting Get Safe Online.
