Amazon Phishing Scam - "Update Your Account Information Within 24-hours"

The email message below which claims that recipients should update their account information within 24 hours because Amazon has recently updated their customer database, and a new security feature has been added to their website for effective shipping and order, is a phishing scam that was NOT sent by Amazon. The email message, sent by cyber-criminals, was designed to steal Amazon users' login credentials, personal and credit card information.

The Phishing Amazon Email Message

Dear Customer, has recently updated our customer database and new security feature has been added to our website for effective shipping and order. Please click the link below to update your account information within 24-hours.

Click Here.


The link in the fake email message goes to a fake Amazon website, that will ask the recipients who have clicked on it, for their personal, credit card, and other sensitive information. If the information is entered on the fake website, it will be sent to the scammers behind this phishing scam. The scammers will then use the information to steal their victims' money, identity, and use their accounts fraudulently.

Amazon users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly Amazon's website, by going directly to Also, Amazon will address their users or customers by their names, and not by "Dear Customer," or "Dear User."

If you were tricked into sending the cybercriminals your Amazon user ID, password, personal and credit card information, please change your Amazon password, and contact them and your bank immediately.
