This phishing email has an attachment that contains a form that will open in your web browser. The form will ask you for your , personal, credit card, and other sensitive information.

If you enter the information on the form, it will be sent to the scammers behind this phishing scam.

Amazon will never ask you to confirm that you are the holder of an account by asking you to confirm your personal and credit card information.

Also, in email messages, Amazon will address you by your name and not by the following:

  • Dear Customer
  • Dear User
  • Dear Member

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