Beware! Amazon Phishing Email
by Kristofer Brozio •
So here’s a new one, at least for me.. it’s an Amazon phishing email and it looks real only if you aren’t paying attention that is.. This just came in actually and it’s odd timing as I just ordered from Amazon about an hour or so ago.
First off it’s addressed to Amazon and not me as other Amazon emails are
The sender actually looks like Amazon but looking closer the email address is actually: firstname.lastname@example.org which is not Amazon
Then reading on you see a link to Amazon to fix the ‘problem’ but it looks funny especially with the whole ‘login-run’ thing at the end.
But that’s not actually the link as the real link it goes to is: http://zontic.eu/amz/update/fun/index.htm
I don’t think I have to say this but I will anyway, don’t go to the above link!!!
Which is obviously not Amazon.
Yeah, so make sure you read your emails carefully and don’t click on anything or else you could get yourself into quite a bit of trouble!!
Please be careful, I’m sure many people have fallen for this already as it does look real….
