The "Your Amazon Account will be Disabled Soon" Scam

Amazon users, be aware of fake "Your Amazon Account will be Disabled Soon" emails like the one below, which claim your Amazon accounts will be disabled soon. The fake email messages are being sent by cybercriminals, and the links in 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.

Therefore, Amazon users are asked never to click on links in email messages that claim that their Amazon accounts have been limited. 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.
