Don’t Be Taken in by this Fake Amazon Order Phishing Scam!

Did you get an email from Amazon telling you about an order that you don’t remember ordering? That’s probably because you didn’t – it’s a phishing scam! Don’t fall for it! The “Your Amazon.com Order” email, which purportedly comes from “digital-no-reply@amazon.com” actually is an effort to get you to point your web browser to BookSalon.kr (the actual phishing URL is http://booksalon.kr/index2.html).

Here’s what the email looks like – innocent enough, right?

  1. Have had two unknown charges on my credit card account, the first in February for $5.02 and the second in March, for $10.25 both charges made by Merchant Information Amazon Services – Kindle 866-321-8851 . Having Bank check them out.
    Never heard of these people before. Have never dealt with them before. Never signed or agreed to pay additional fees anywhere.

  2. I got debits on my business account, the last two statements: “Sponsored Products 866-216-1072 NV”

    I called them, got a recording, telling me about great deals on stuff. and then,
    “just hang up and we will call you back” Then 15 minutes later I called them again, and it rang and rang for 20 times and got a recording that the number is not working at this time.

    SCAM!!!! If this happened to you….call your bank to have the charges removed. MY Question, is HOW did they get my CC number?

  3. Got one today from “AMAZON.COM”
