Beware of "Your $100 AMAZ0N Prime Credit-Will Expire" Amazon Prime Reward Scam

The email message below: "Important Notification Regarding Your Current Rewards Points," which claims that the recipients have been awarded a $100 worth of bonus points that they can apply towards any product for sale on Amazon’s website, is a fake.

One such fraudulent website is "supergiftland.kooc.info".

    Just received similar email saying I will lose $200 Amazon bonus if I don't click on link before Nov. 18.
    Thought it sounded too good to be true so I googled it!

    How stupid do these scammers think we are? The email subject mentions a $50 Credit, and then the body of the scam email bumps that to $100. What a joke.

    Just received same. My filter automatically dumps this as spam so I simply delete all spam. Would never consider opening anything from anyone I didn't request it from. That's always the safest thing to do.

    Another way to double check is to look at the return email address...and I often do a Google search for the subject line if I'm at all suspicious.

    I got this email the other day but was afraid to click on it, though it sounded good, it was suspicious to me. Ho they know I have Prime, I don't know, but something was off.

    The Amazon word in the email had 0's as O's (zero vs. the letter O), and it just didn't seem like it was a for real thing from Amazon, although I wanted it to be. This question led me to search, and here I am. Found this right off the bat! I thought so, but thanks for the confirmation. I did NOT want to get a virus on my PC or 'schwaggled' in any way.

    Much appreciated. You get nada for nothing :).

    xoxo
    Shelly.
