Amazon.com "your cancellation" order update email spam
We're sharing this one since it might deceive some into believing they have received an email order update from Amazon.com. We're seeing the emails strictly coming into Gmail and kudos to Gmail for it filtering straight to spam. Nevertheless, we reiterate these are definitely spam. Email addresses can be faked, hijacked, masked, etc., so even though the email says its from firstname.lastname@example.org, that doesn't mean it is legit. It seems Gmail might have disabled the links. You'll know its spam if you haven't even ordered anything from Amazon. Furthermore, just look at the items the email purports to have cancelled. Hope this has helped clear any confusion. Do NOT respond to the spam email. And do NOT click any links. If you need to contact Amazon or update anything, do it from Amazon.com's website!
