Beware - AMAZON scam

Post by macliam » Tue Dec 20, 2016 8:37 pm

'Tis the season to be scammed!! :wtf:

Just a reminder to keep alert - the scammers are out and about!

SWMBO just asked me what I'd ordered from Amazon, as she had an email to say it was being delivered 23 December. I have nothing on order, so took a look - the email was quite good at first sight, from Amazon.co.uk, not .com, with an order number and a picture of the product,etc. ..... apart from the fact it's nothing I would ever buy. :?

Then I noticed the address details - her email as name, "Registered address, United Kingdom" as adress..... hmmm :think:

Looked further down the email "If you did not purchased this item and want to Cancel the transaction Please click on the link below". Bingo - why can't these dorks ever spell-check (or grammar check) their scams :roll:

So, hit reply to see what spoof address was being used - Amazon <JGT-7841716@clozon.freshservice.com>, yeah, yeah. that'll be genuine then.

HOWEVER - she didn't know that, might have clicked the button and.........

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me
