Are you an Amazon Prime member? Or are you expecting Amazon Prime Day events? Scammers know what you want, and they take advantage of Amazon Prime and make it a tactic to exploit you- to steal your money or even your identity.
Scammers pose as Amazon and send emails that claim you’ve placed an order. They attach fake order ID and a set of phone numbers that is irrelevant to Amazon. What scammers want is that you dial the number they provide and then commit further scams- for example, ask you to provide login credentials or to wire money.
Here is a case of Amazon Prime scam:
