Warning - a new email scamming technique

10 replies

well... this is new for me. Not sure if you guys saw it yet.

here is the email I received, added spaces so you can actually see the code and not the links, and edited my own email address for obvious reasons.

the target seems to be to make you visit their page and login with your amazon username and password... this is an assumption, as I didn't follow any of the links.
