Kim Komando, a consumer technology expert, received the email and said that the link takes you to a fake Amazon site that asks for log-in information. Obviously, you should not click on the link — Komando said it could lead to a malware infection on your computer or ransomware that could encrypt sensitive files.
Per Komando, the email looks like this:
Amazon's guide on how to identify phishing scams from the company says they usually contain: an order confirmation, or attachment to one, for something you didn't purchase; requests for your Amazon.com username and/or password, or other personal information; requests to update payment information; links to websites that resemble Amazon.com; prompts to install new software; typos or other errors; and/or email addresses that aren't from "@amazon.com."
If you got one of these emails, Good Housekeeping recommends checking your information on the Amazon Payment website, and contacting the company at email@example.com. Then, delete the email right away.
