Here’s another one I received – these scammers love me:
“Attention required on case 98177469: unsuccessful in charging your credit card for your AWS usage so we have placed your AWS account on hold”
This one’s from the asawsamazses.com domain name again. Strange name. I hope nobody falls for this.
The main part of the message is an image with text in it. That’s how they try to get through junk filters.
If I would have clicked on it, it would have gone to this domain name:
The main domain name here is “nikolania-dampf.org” and then they add more sub-domains to it to try to make it look somewhat real at a glance… but it’s not.
The “Please Confirm Your Information To Remove Account Limit Restriction” is bad English and capitalizing every word like that isn’t what a company like Amazon would do.
Even the capitalization here isn’t consistent: “Amazon Web Services Your Account under review” plus it doesn’t make sense / isn’t good English. That’s another tip-off for sure.
Don’t fall for this scam. Delete it.
