Beware of Amazon Email Scam
Another scam is circulating around the internet and to your email. An elaborate authentic-looking Amazon email may be in your inbox. Here's what to look for so you don't fall for this scam. According to News Channel 13, there is an email scam that looks like it came from Amazon directly telling you that you need to authenticate and verify your information through a recent purchase.
The email goes on to say that you must update your payment information to release your account from being on hold. The link is sent to a fake website that looks just like Amazon. The email may say something to the effect of "Thank you for your recent purchase of an Amazon e-gift card. If you didn't authorize this transaction, click the link to cancer or get a refund".
If you receive this, you are to delete it. But be warned, the email looks very real featuring Amazon logos, letterhead, and other Amazon signature logos.
