I received an email appearing to come from Amazon today. The address it was from was AMAZON.CO.UK [email protected] The bit of the address [email protected] was enclosed with < >.
What made me suspicious is that it referred to an order I placed on 1st December and I didn't place any orders yesterday and in addition it was addressed to not only me but a load of people with a similar email address to me. Another doubtful aspect was a zip file in the attachments waiting to be opened!
There is also a new fake one purporting to be from MBNA telling you to log in and update your details or you would be locked out in 48hrs. Be very aware this time of the year. They are out fishing and none of them St. Peter. The MBNA one looks really genuine so be careful.
I have just had a spam email from PayPal, advising me that there is suspicious activity on my account and it has been froze. They used a very old email account address that I used with them over 2 years ago !! Had to click on a link to sort the problem out. Good try so be warned and add this one to the many others doing the rounds.
