Beware of Fake and Phishing Amazon Invoices Sent by Cybercriminals

Amazon customers are asked to be aware of fake invoices like the one below, which are being sent by cybercriminals. The fake invoices falsely claim that the recipients have made an order and they should click on a link in the same email messages to cancel the order or transaction if they didn't make the purchase. But, the link in the email messages goes to a phishing website that will ask visitors to sign-in with their Amazon credentials and submit their personal and credit card information for verification purposes. But, any information submitted on the phishing website will be sent to cybercriminals behind the scam, who will use the stolen information to gain access to their potential victims’ Amazon accounts, and use the accounts fraudulently. They will also use the stolen credit information fraudulently.

Amazon customers who were tricked into visiting the phishing website and submitting their information on it, should change their Amazon passwords immediately, check their accounts for discrepancies, and report any found to Amazon. They should also let their banks know that they were tricked into submitting their credit card information on a phishing website.

To prevent phishing scams, Amazon customers should not click on links in email messages to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to Amazon’ website (www.amazon.com) and sign into their accounts from there. Once they are signed in, they can check their accounts for purchases and view important notifications.
