A New Phishing Scam Is Targeting People On Amazon Prime Day!

Today is the first day of Amazon Prime Day and this year is the first it's 2 days long!

While a lot of us are already filling up our shopping carts with all the things we are going to buy, just beware of some phishing schemes going on with fake Amazon emails!

McAfee released a statement warning people about a phishing scam that targets Amazon users pretending to be a message from Amazon.com.

The link ends up taking you to fake Amazon pages, which eventually convinces users to give up their emails and passwords.

The hackers use that information to purchase items on your account!

McAfee said,

"We believe that victims of this kit will be led to the malicious websites via links in phishing emails. We recommend that if users want to check any account changes on Amazon, which they received via email or other sources, that they go to Amazon.com directly and navigate from there rather than following suspicious links."

Make sure you check the URL in the email to make sure it ends in @amazon.com otherwise it's fake.

Amazon Prime Day is today July 15th and tomorrow July 16th!
