I just got a scam email from someone claiming to be Amazon that snuck through my hotmail junk filter. They spoofed an Amazon email and asked me to “verify my account.”
I’ve been using the same email with Amazon for yeeeeeears and they never asked this before, so I was immediately suspicious, and rightfully so. I notified Amazon of the scam, but I just want to make sure you all are careful with any emails asking for “verification” of your accounts, let alone name, address, email, password, or other personal information.
If you EVER get an email from a company asking for any of that stuff, log in to your account with that company before taking any other action. Check out their help section and see if they mention any thing about spoofs and scams, or their policies on what they will and won’t ask you.
Be safe! Your identity is your most valuable asset, and people are trying to steal it.
