Payment Refund Order #D01-9294635-404748 BIG PAY DAY?

You just got a big refund in your account! Do you remember the transaction? Did you check? Don’t just Click

The email, which looks like it’s genuinely from Amazon, tricks customers into thinking there is a problem processing their order or asks them to log in to change details on their account. It then asks you to click on a link and confirm your account details. The phishing scam then collects up your personal information – giving fraudsters access to your personal and financial information.

An Amazon spokesperson said: “These can look similar to real Amazon emails but often direct the recipient to a false website where they might be asked to provide account information such as their email address and password combination.”

 What not to do:

  • Look for grammatical and spelling errors; fraudsters are notoriously bad at writing proper English. If you receive a message from a “friend” informing you of a freebie, consider whether it’s written in your friend’s normal style.
  • If you’re invited to click on an URL, hover over the link to see the address it will take you to – does it look genuine?
  • To be on the really safe side, don’t click on unsolicited links in messages, even if they appear to come from a trusted contact.
  • Be careful when opening email attachments too. Fraudsters are increasingly attaching files, usually PDFs or spreadsheets, which contain dangerous malware.
  • If you receive a suspicious message then report it to the company, block the sender and delete it.

Is it for real? 

If it looks suspicious at all, go directly to the websites main website and address any issues through there. Never confirm Username or Password information through any email link.
