Now it’s your turn!
An email arrives telling you there’s an issue with your Amazon Order and asking you to either click on a link that they provide or call them and they provide the number. But you don’t remember placing an order. The link goes to a “look-a-like” page and asks you to update your credit card. Amazon already has your credit card so do NOT put it in again. Amazon will never mention in their emails that you should call them if you didn’t place an order. If you want to check, open your Amazon account and look at the orders. If there’s an issue, you’ll see it there. Never click on any link in an email that asks you to update your credit card information. The scammer is betting that out there somewhere someone has done a recent order from Amazon and they are hoping to cash in on that. The emails from the scammers go out to millions of people. Scammers cast a wide net, hoping that at least a few fish will be caught in it.
