A common scam that we’re seeing recently is an email appearing to come from “Amazon” about a problem with an order. It tells you to click a link in the email if you
order a $5000 television - or something else of high value. It’s a scam -
click the link! When in doubt about
email, close the email message and go to the website or account in question directly to check any orders on your account.
We're also seeing lots of emails targeting AT&T/Yahoo email users that claims there's an urgent problem or update required for your account - and that you need to click a link in the email to enter some information. Again, never click a link in an email that you're not expecting nor are 100% sure of the source of the email.
In both examples above, clicking the links would take you to an official-looking website where you would be prompted to enter personal information (email address, password, financial information, social security number, etc.) People that have divulged that information had their financing and email accounts compromised soon-thereafter.
