Beware of "Your Order Has Been Cancelled" Amazon Phishing Scam
March 30, 2015
The email message below: "Your Order Has Been Cancelled," is a phishing scam that was 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 www.amazon.com to sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in an e-mail message.
