UK Phishing Alert from our security analysts.
UK companies need to be aware of the latest Phishing scam targeting Amazon.co.uk customers. The latest scam uses all the best social engineering skills to trick people into clicking on a link to cancel an order they haven’t placed. We have put a copy of the email below.
The “cancel order” button on the fake email will take the user to a page they did not want to go to. If you receive this email and hover over the link you will see where it takes you. It varies from victim to victim. Please do not click on the link.
This template is common from fraudsters. They are depending on instilling a sense of panic in the victim that their credit card is about to be charged for something they haven’t ordered.
