WARNING: If You’ve Ordered Anything From Amazon, Look For This Scam!
If you are an avid Amazon shopper or even just ordered some of your Christmas gifts online, here is something you’re going to want to look out for.
You’re going to get an email “from Amazon” and it’s going to say “your order cannot be shipped” and to continue you will have to confirm your information–this is where the scam begins. According to the Better Business Bureau:
The landing page looks really good. It could easily fool you. The page wants your full name and address. But worse, it wants your credit card information including your CVV, your three digit security code on the back.
The scammers are so good, the next page is the real Amazon.com. So, you need to know the tip-offs:
Subject line: Your Amazon.com order cannot be shipped
Check the sender’s name. Usually it’s a company versus Amazon.
Never, never, never click the link that is provided in an email. Always go to the website directly.
Whatever you do, do not click any link in an email.
