RCMP issue warning over Amazon email scam

Manitoba RCMP have issued a warning over an email scam targeting Amazon customers.
Police say they have received multiple reports from Amazon customers about emails they had received regarding suspicious purchases they did not make. Much like a standard Amazon confirmation email, they contain details like the cost of the purchase and a shipping address.
When a person clicks on the “details” button, the emails direct them to a fake Amazon login page designed to steal usernames and passwords. If that information is entered, it could potentially allow users to steal credit card information, police say.

" the emails direct them to a fake Amazon login page designed to steal usernames and passwords"....if you aren't aware of these types of scams, you probably should not have any online shopping, or banking accounts.
