Ama­zon scam ‘im­proves pri­vacy’

Computer Active (UK) - - Protect Your Tech -

I can usu­ally spot scams quickly, but the head­line in a re­cent email from ‘Ama­zon’ claim­ing to be about im­prov­ing pri­vacy seemed worth open­ing. It said that Ama­zon would in fu­ture hold my de­tails for no more than six months. Then came the tell-tale signs, ask­ing me to ‘Click here to ver­ify now your de­tails’ and a mis­placed apos­tro­phe: ‘Ad­di­tional In­for­ma­tion’s’. So I checked the email’s Prop­er­ties, and saw it was from ‘ 44130203@no­ti­fi­ca­tions.com’, not Ama­zon.co.uk. I then added the sender to my Blocked list.
