Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have just received a scam email purporting to come from Amazon for a ph tester that I have not ordered. This came into my inbox at 16.01 today.

When I clicked on the cancel order link, it asked me for my Amazon account Password and then my credit card details. Luckily I felt that this was wrong and checked my orders on Amazon Prime which showed no outstanding orders. I thought you should know about this as soon as possible

Thank you Jane

This is known as a 'Phishing Scam'. The idea is to get you to enter your personal information so the person logging in can get goods sent somewhere other than your home. Also the credit card details can be used to clone a card.

Things to look for are the address in the URL line of your browser not being related to the company writing, also that the URL does start https with the 's' signifying the site is secure, and its accompanying lock symbol.

I have received 2 emails from Amazon that there is a problem with my online account. How can I verify these messages. The only thing I have ordered have been kindle e books.


Almost certainly a phishing email. If you go to the site, you should go the amazon.com domain and the url should start with httpS:// the S signifies a SECURE site and shows a green padlock, and the phishing ones aren't.

Best advice though is not to use the link, but go to Amazon yourself, log in and check your account Inbox.

I have received an email informing me I have been selected for a woolworths gift card. sender info@mailer.coondelivery21. Can you tell me if this is genuine or a scam?


In general, if the sender's email does not come from the domain of the purported gifting company, it is a scam. Also in general, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is a scam.

    I would treat this as a phishing email, with the sender hoping you will respond and give away your account details.
    You can always contact Amazon security as they would probably like to investigate these emails.
