New Amazon Phishing Scam to look Out For
Just received a an email from Amazon with the subject "recent activities" (all in lowercase) and the text:
We detected something unusual about a recent sign-in to your account. To help keep you safe, We require an extra security challenge.
The is a phishing expedition, so be careful. The sender is not Amazon, who knows my name and does not send subject lines that do not start with a capital letter. Also, the sending email address does not end with @amazon.com.
As always, be careful what you click on.

I got one today for "Apple" that seemed to do a better job. It's email address was noreply(at)email.apple(dot)com.
But it too was a phishing scam.

I don't trust any emails anymore. And if an email seems legit, then I call the company directly and see if what they sent me is true.

I think your approach may be the safest. Never click a link. Ever.

I've been getting stuff from "Amazon", "Apple" and "Target" ... I think with Black Friday looking, it is silly season for everyone and everything.
