"Amazon We Recently Contacted You Regarding a Declined Payment" Scam

Would you share this Article with others?

The email below with the subject "We Recently Contacted You Regarding a Declined Payment," is a fake and phishing scam that is being sent by scammers and not by Amazon. The scam has been created by cybercriminals to steal Amazon users' username and password, by attempting to trick them into clicking on the link within it, which will take them to a 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 and sign into their accounts from there, instead of clicking on a link in an e-mail message.
