Beware of "Your Order Has Been Cancelled‏" Amazon Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject "Your Order Has Been Cancelled," is a phishing scam that is being sent by scammers and not by Amazon. The scam was designed to steal Amazon users' username and password, by attempting to trick them into clicking on the link within it, which will take them to fake Amazon web page. The fake web page will then ask Amazon users to sign-in with their username and password. But, any information entered on the fake web page will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the scam, who will use it to hijack the victims' accounts.

It is recommended that Amazon customers go directly to to sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in an e-mail message.

The links in the email message go to a fake Amazon web page. The website that is hosting the fake Amazon page that appears to be a legitimate website, but has been compromised by hackers, who have put the bogus Amazon web page on it.

Remember, never click on a link in an email message to sign-in or log into your Amazon account, and always look at your web browser's address bar to ensure that you are on amazon's website and not some other fake or phishing website.

If you have already submitted your information on the fake Amazon web page, please change your Amazon password immediately, because, with your Amazon's username and password, the scammers will hijack your account.
