Scam Of The Week: New Hybrid Amazon Phishing/Phone Password Scam

Heads up! The bad guys are sending a spoofed Amazon email claiming that Amazon has detected an unauthorized attempt to reset the password on the recipient’s account. A six digit code is provided along with instructions to call a phone number to “verify your identity.”

A number of users online have reported receiving this phish over the past month. Some have even called the provided phone number. They report their calls being answered by individuals who attempt to direct them to a website in order to input more information.

If you’re concerned about the security of your account, reach out to the actual website’s support team. Do not navigate to the website from any links in the email.

Always remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!”
