The Phishing Amazon Email Message
Dear Amazon.com Customer,
Amazon.com has recently updated our customer database and new security feature has been added to our website for effective shipping and order. Please click the link below to update your account information within 24-hours.
The link in the fake email message goes to a fake Amazon website, that will ask the recipients who have clicked on it, for their personal, credit card, and other sensitive information. If the information is entered on the fake website, it will be sent to the scammers behind this phishing scam. The scammers will then use the information to steal their victims' money, identity, and use their accounts fraudulently.
Amazon users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly Amazon's website, by going directly to www.amazon.com. Also, Amazon will address their users or customers by their names, and not by "Dear Amazon.com Customer," or "Dear User."
If you were tricked into sending the cybercriminals your Amazon user ID, password, personal and credit card information, please change your Amazon password, and contact them and your bank immediately.
