My $313 Amazon Purchase

Philippines
March 28, 2018 8:37pm CST
Wow! Just wow! I needed to review the order details according to the email I received. The email was an order confirmation from Amazon. All of us in the office received the same verbiage. And I wonder how these techy people get all of our business email addresses. I wonder what item we purchased online with an amount of $313 and something change. My manager immediately announced about the email. Even she did not announce it, I won't open any links in that email. I know it is a PHISHING email. In the first place I did not make the purchase.

Do you confirm that it was a legit email? I heard that is a scam. Should research before you accept, you might lead to hackers.

theres a bunch of those going around. i have a feeling that someone either stole or bought some info thats related to this site/offers or amazon and is sending it to all of us.

I wonder why Amazon would do that. Sell our email addresses.

I never open those kind of emails, at most I log into my Amazon account and check my order status.

@jobelbojel If there is a pending or canceled order you can find it there.

They are getting smarter. People might not open a 1 million dollar purchase but a smaller amount they might be tempted to.

I have learned not to open any of the links that come online anymore if I don't know what they are. Can't trust some people anymore

Trust is a big thing. I don't trust these links being sent to my office mail or even my personal mail.

Good job you weren't taken in - I received a similar email telling me my order was ready to pick up. I'd not ordered anything so didn't fall for it.

It is weird right when somebody sends us an email about an order we did not place.

That was very scary, the only thing I got before was a fake paypal email. Good thing though that I've been warned before about it.
