 Doesn’t like a Amazon email in the 1st place. I check the Amazon website for the status of my purchase(S) anyway.

That would be a no brainer…if you didn’t order from Amazon that should be the first place to check.

“We see it every year: social engineering attacks that take advantage of the online shopping activities around Black Friday and Cyber Monday, targeting customers of online retailers”, Duc Nguyen and Wei Li write in a blog on Microsoft’s website."

Very simple solution. Put your phone down, get off of your Cheetos laden butt and purchase from a local retailer!
You’ll get the product Today, it will be paid for Today, whatever slim profits made on the sale will stay in the community and not line the pockets of Trump wanna be’s, and you won’t have to worry about fake email.
