This is an important message regarding potentially harmful scam. Cyber criminals are targeting Amazon.com users with a phishing campaign that falsely claims a small number of accounts have been hacked. The email starts with an “Important Notice” and you are required to “verify” your Amazon account by providing payment card information and security details. The email threatens that if you do not comply with the verification process, restrictions may be placed on your account.
The email is a scam to try to trick you into revealing sensitive information.
If you see an email like this that has not been caught by any spam filter, delete it.
You may also receive fake shipping notices asking you to “click to cancel your order” or “click to contact customer service”.
Likewise, delete shipping notice fakes as well.
