Don’t Fall for the ‘Amazoon’ Phishing Scam

22

Its the most halfhearted phishing attempt weve seen in a while: Security company Malwarebytes has identified a new email scam trying to trick recipients into divulging the credentials to their Amazoon accounts. The email message comes from the address amazoon [at] team [dot] fr and the subject line reads Verify Your Amazoon Account. The body of the message contains an Amazon logo and vaguely worded instructions to confirm your account by clicking on the hyperlinked word Manage.  Even without the obvious spelling mistake, these Amazoon emails contain all the phishing warning signs: the request to confirm an account for an unspecified reason, a vague threat that an account is about to be closed, again for an unspecified reason, an incorrect email address domain name (in this case, team.fr instead of amazon.com) and an embedded hyperlink that seems like it should lead to Amazons website.
