Today I received an email that purports to come from Amazon, stating that due to unusual activity on my Amazon account it has been locked until I connect with the link in their email to update and verify my account details. First time I have had a scam on Amazon, have had the usual PayPal one, just thought I would let you all know that there is another scam to watch out for, although maybe many of you have probably already encountered it. I think the rule is if you get any emails like these then go direct to Amazon, PayPal or whoever and check with them, don’t use the links in the emails, we need to be more vigilant than ever during the pandemic as cybercrime has gone through the roof.
