Shopping on Amazon is extremely popular both with consumers and scammers seeking to exploit Amazon’s popularity. With the holiday shopping season rapidly approaching scammers are sending various types of phishing emails which purport to be from Amazon that attempt to lure you into either clicking on links which can download malware, such as ransomware or keystroke logging malware or provide personal information that can be used to make you a victim of identity theft.
