Fake Amazon Prime Email

Alert message sent 19/12/2017 15:17:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

The attached Fake Amazon Email image (it's safe to open as it's a picture of the email, not the email itself) shows an email confirming my subscription to Amazon Prime, one I did not take out. The email's sender is hoping I use the link in the message to unsubscribe and therefore capture my Amazon login details.

The giveaway that the message is fake is it doesn't start with my name. Emails from genuine companies tend to start with your name as they have those details. They have used the first part of my email address.

Another giveaway is the address it's from (IDx-55360@tig.lib.uwf.edu) doesn't look like an Amazon one. That's not always obvious as it was made to display as Amazon Prime.
If you get an email like this, report it to Action Fraud https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/asov and forward it to Amazon stop-spoofing@amazon.com then delete it.

The Amazon advice is also attached.
