Amazon Phishing Scam - "Security Notice - an Attempt to Sign in to Your Account from an Unrecognised Device"

Edit
Amazon Phishing Scam - "Security Notice - an Attempt to Sign in to Your Account from an Unrecognised Device"

The email message below, which appears as an Amazon security notice, claiming there was an attempt to sign into the recipient's account from an unrecognised device, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was not sent by Amazon, so recipients of the same email message should delete it and should never follow the instructions in it. Amazon customers should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their online accounts, they should instead, go directly to Amazon’s website and sign into their accounts from there. This way, Amazon customers will never need to worry about phishing scams.

The link in the fake Amazon email message goes to an Amazon phishing website, where potential victims will be asked to sign in. Now, any attempts to sign into the fake website will send the potential victims’ Amazon account credentials to the thieves who created the scam. Once the thieves are in possession of their potentials victims’ credentials, they will hijack their accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

Amazon customers who have already attempted to sign into the phishing website, should change their passwords and contact Amazon immediately.
