[Scam Alert] Fake Amazon Verification Phishing Email

Security alert
January 21, 2021

Did you receive emails from Amazon that claim your account has been suspended for “unusual activities” and ask you to click on a button to verify your account? Be cautious of these phishing emails!

Scammers send spoofed emails, pretending to be from Amazon officials. The buttons included in such emails are phishing links, which will lure you into sending your personal information or financial credentials to the scammers. They can use these data breached on identity thefts or any other scams afterward.

If it’s necessary, please go to the Amazon website directly to confirm if the issues raised in the email are legitimate instead of clicking on the links provided in the emails. Or else, you can use Trend Micro Check for immediate scam detection!
