Amazon and Ebay customers targeted in new Microsoft scam

Originally published at:

Customers of Amazon, Alibaba and Ebay are the target of an infamous Microsoft scam that this time starts with a cancellation email. The email states that the order has been cancelled and the order number links to a website with all kinds of pornographic images.

Any registered members of those online retailers should first check their accounts on the site before even clicking on such links. This is the same games malware use and people are still falling for simple but effective scams. Guess people still have simple minds and yet are so willing to click on anything before verifying on their actual accounts.
