Beware of "Your $50 Amazon Credit Will Expire" Scams

Amazon users, be aware of fake email messages like the ones below, which claim that your Amazon Prime credit will expire. The fake email messages are being sent by cybercriminals, and the links them go to phishing websites that steal personal and financial information, go to malicious websites that infect computers or mobile devices with malware, go to fraudulent websites that will ask visitors to complete surveys that the cybercriminals behind the scam will get paid for, or go to websites that ask visitors to buy counterfeit or fake products or services.

Please continue reading below.

Therefore, Amazon users are asked never to click on links in email messages that claim that their Amazon credit will expire. They should instead, go directly to www.amazon.com and sign into their accounts from there. This will prevent Amazon users from clicking on malicious links that go to phishing or malicious websites.

    Just got this email:

    "Rewards Confirmation

    Hey (my email address)

    Dear Amazon Shopper, we're contacting you because our customer service has tried to get a hold of you for the past 4 days but wasn't able to - maybe there is something wrong with your e-mail. The reason why we're reaching out is an active compensation valued $50 for you in our computer-system - the reward expires in 5 days if you do not claim it. Please visit this web page, or click the button below to receive your reward,
