Amazon can be the savior for many of us when it comes to Christmas shopping, but be careful for scammers trying to get your information.┬áThe email scam in question has an email sent to you with the subject line of ‘Your order cannot be shipped’. Then the email will ask you to click on a link.

Lechelle Yates from the Better Business Bureau was quoted talking about the email in question, “The landing page looks really good. It could easily fool you. The page wants your full name and address. But worse, it wants your credit card information including your CVV, your three digit security code on the back.”

Yates goes on to say that you should never click the link in the email and if you are worried about your Amazon order, to just go to your Amazon account and check from there.
