There are many banned words that are prohibited in Amazon reviews, and that will get your review rejected in a New York minute. Unhelpfully, Amazon doesn’t offer a list of forbidden words, and they don’t let you know the offending word or words in their rejection notice. So we have decided to create a list here. Below are the words that we know or suspect will get your review rejected by Amazon – please help fellow Amazon reviewers by adding to this list.
AOL has just announced that they are following Yahoo’s suit in telling the email-receiving world to reject (bounce) any email that has an aol.com “from” address, but doesn’t actually come through an AOL mail server, using the now infamous “p=reject” DMARC policy.
A brand new scam, trying to get you to download malware, has just hit the Internet. “The ACH transaction recently sent from your checking account (by you or any other person), was canceled by the Electronic Payments Association” says the spam in which it is contained. There is a link to a file that you are supposed to download to “see the details of the report”. Don’t download that file! The file name format is “report_FakeTransaction#.pdf.exe” so, for example, report_33047451352379.pdf.exe. So far the scam mail has pretended to come from NACHA.org, although they are actually coming through an ISP in the Ukraine (ukrtel.net). ACH, by the way, stands for Automated Clearing House, which is a system that processes electronic banking transactions.
