ATTENTION, AMAZON Users
Today, I received a very official looking email from AMAZON email address.
It had an Amazon Dot Com link that “went to my account”. I check what was behind the text. Because the junk after Amazon Dot Com was garbage, it resolved to the front page and the cookie signed me in.
I almost fell for it EXCEPT:
- Why would Amazon attach a zip file to an order confirmation?
- IT came in from “firstname.lastname@example.org” which it not my address for amazon.
- I didn’t order anything that I was still waiting for.
Even after that analysis, when it came it I almost screwed up.
Of course, I reported it to: email@example.com

NOTE: GMAIL didn’t like it either.
The message “Order Details” from Amazon.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) contained a virus or a suspicious attachment. It was therefore not fetched from your account email@example.com and has been left on the server.
If you wish to write to Amazon.com, just hit reply and send Amazon.com a message.
