Amazon Prime Reward Scam - “Your $100 AMAZ0N Prime Credit-Will Expire”
Dec 20, 2015
The email message below: “Important Notification Regarding Your Current Rewards Points,” which claims that the recipients have been awarded a $100 worth of bonus points that they can apply towards any product for sale on Amazon’s website, is a fake. The fake Amazon Prime Reward email message, which also claims the recipients can claim their bonuses by clicking on the link in the same email message before it expires, will actually take the recipients to a phishing website, malicious website, or fraudulent website where they will be asked to complete surveys. One such fraudulent website is “supergiftland.kooc.info”.
