Have You Received Amazon Order Cancellation Emails?

amazon spoof1 150x150 Have You Received Amazon Order Cancellation Emails?

Sample Email

In the last week I have received 3 emails  from what appeared to be Amazon.com(an A+ BBB Accredited Business).  These current spoofers are good, because at first, I truly believed they were from Amazon.

It said my order had been cancelled and it appeared to be a book for my kindle.  After verifying that no one in my family in fact ordered a book, I became slightly suspicious.  After the third one, I immediately got on the live chat with an Amazon representative.  They confirmed that the email I was referring to was not from them, but in fact from spoofers.

They recommended that I not click on any links and disregard the email.  They assured me my financial information was safe, however I did go the extra step and delete my saved credit card information in my Amazon account.  Probably not necessary, but better safe than sorry.

If you have received or get one in the future, forward the email to stop-spoofing@amazon.com so that their security department can investigate.
