Solution suggested by the Amazon to get rid out of it.
Well, such phishing scam tries to replicate a genuine Amazon communication which is hard to guess whether it’s a right one or not. Even you can check that subject line of emails try to showcase the message as a system generate that is “Automatic statement”.
We get to know that such fraud mails come with a word attachment and with a file name called “Account-Summary Amazon”. You will see that attachment is safe but what about the link? The link you gonna see in Word file redirect users to a fake Amazon website. Only motive is just to steal your log-in ID and Password.
Amazon suggested to their customer that if they got any such mail regarding issues and rewards then directly login to your account by app. In Amazon app you have the option to chat with customer care. Go there and directly ask to them about issues and reward programme.
Amazon also cleared that they never ask about the customers credentials like account details, credit card number, username and password.
They also mentioned that if you got any mail from Amazon, kindly check their language and typo errors because generally these types of fraud mails are translated from other languages and without doing proof read they sent. Simply you can say this type of mail contains lot of mistakes which Amazon never do.
Amazon Company should also secure their platform with all such matter so that next time no such scam can think about spreading fraud mails to the users. This is not the first time when users are facing such problems. Now we can say that even shopping websites are also not safe, hackers are ruling there and wants your credential information at any cost. Right now Amazon is facing very bad situation. This can also ruin their market. All users need to pay attention on Amazon’s suggestion which I mentioned above.
