Beware This Amazon Phishing Email

I got a phishing email today purporting to be from Amazon. Most of these emails are obvious frauds, but this one looks real enough that it might fool some people.

amazon-p

It claims to be about a refund, and billing information that needs to be updated. I actually had an issue similar to this recently, when my credit card was renewed with a different number. But, of course, the real Amazon email looks different than this one.

As always, you can hover your cursor over the link and see that it’s not a real Amazon.com link:

amazon-p-link

If you’re on iOS, tap and hold the link to see the web address.

Be smart; think before you click.

  1. I received multiple PayPal account suspension emails sent to my organisation email address, but the fact is I have no PayPal account yet.
    Prettt sure we need to pay enough attention to almost every single email we receive and check every link before clicking.

  2. I consistently get this type of emails and I do not open them. I send them straight to the Spam Folder. Usually they are free Gift Cards for two local supermarkets or hardware stores. Also I get emails for payouts of large sums of money, free products from IKEA, Nivea Products, Oral B, Dyson Vacuum Cleaner, Apple, Mazda CX-9 Toyota, Nespresso, to name just some I receive. Last week I had an email stating I had a failed email sent. From: “Mail Delivery System”, the next day when I logged onto my computer. I had closed down the computer the night before at 23;45 hours, the email claimed it failed at 23:29 hours. I thought to myself hang on I did not send any emails last night. I checked my “Sent” folder and sure enough I had not sent any emails the night before. So like all the rest of these emails , it was sent to the Spam Folder. I am sure all these emails have links in them to either obtain your personal information, or lock your computer, then requesting a payment. Clear message “Don’t open them Don’t respond to them”.
