Beware of "Amazon Your Order Has Been Cancelled‏" Phishing Scam

2018-03-21T10:43:12  +
Beware of "Amazon Your Order Has Been Cancelled‏" Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject "Your Order Has Been Cancelled," is a phishing scam that is being 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.

Please continue reading below.

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.

The Phishing Amazon Email Message

    Actually, I opened the first email that I received. I got a message that said my computer had a virus and I should call Apple at a certain number that really wasn't Apple's number. I called Apple support to help me get the message off my screen. I don't understand how these emails are getting through to my inbox. They are not in my address book.

    I've received multiple emails with similar content. I always check the sender address which, in the most recent message read as follows: order-update@amazon.com . It doesn't require much thought to realize that "amazonviable" is an unlikely domain name for a global business giant.

    Is there a way to report the phishing scam to Amazon? Not that they could do anything about it.

    I started receiving these messages a month ago and have received them steadily at the rate of 2-3 a day. I'm an active Amazon shopper, making 2-3 purchases a month. However, it was clear these messages had nothing to do with any orders I submitted. None of these messages has made it to my Inbox -- seems as though Outlook is catching them and putting them in the Junk Mail folder.
