Scammers have a field day with Amazon Prime Day
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Cybersecurity researchers are warning consumers of possible phishing scams revolving around one of the largest consumer events across the globe.
Amazon Prime Day lags only Black Friday and Cyber Monday in consumer activity, bringing millions of buyers to the online retailer’s website.
Scammers are sending emails made to look like they’re from Amazon Support.
The emails could contain an attachment with malware or ask you to log in on a website that looks similar to Amazon. They’re trying to steal your data.
1,900 new domains have been linked to Amazon Prime Day, and nearly 10% have been deemed risky by cybersecurity officials.
To avoid these scams, officials recommend carefully looking at any emails you receive. They may be from strange addresses or have spelling and grammar errors.
