New AMAZON Phishing Scam.

A friend of mine got hit with this yesterday.

This latest scam includes "The Amazon" and, I have to admit, is pretty damn good.  

This one is pretty clever and utilizes "new device login alerts" which, by now I'm sure most of you have seen in your Inbox. 

The trick to this one is, you might actually believe it. I would check out a notification from Amazon if I received an email that someone in Spain had logged into my account. Tricky, tricky! 

If you have no idea what I am talking about when it comes to "new login notifications", here's an example:

Example: The Chrome Browser has a security feature that when you login from a different device for the first time, an email is sent to your main email notifying you of the login to your account from that device. 

This little bugger "hijacks" that notification and sends you to the website: "https://casinoiphone.ca/url/a1" and then proceeds to help you achieve one very, VERY BAD DAY! 

Here is what the email looks like:

amazon hijack 1

Like the Amazon logo in the email? I do. That will fool A LOT of people. 

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE CLICK THAT URL!

If you receive such an email ( I personally never have) contact Amazon support or, login to Amazon and change your password (if needed). 

Man-O-Man...they are getting crafty, aren't they? 

Thanks Terry for the FYI on this. 

Note: if you think this will help someone you love or, even like a little, please pass it on.
