Watch Out For This New Amazon Phishing/Phone Password Scam

Amazon has detected an unauthorized spoof email  that claims there was an attempt to reset the recipient’s Amazon account password. A six digit code is provided along with instructions to call a phone number to “verify your identity.” A number of users online have reported receiving this phish over the past month. Some have even called the provided phone number. They report their calls being answered by individuals speaking with a thick Indian accent who then attempt to direct them to a web site in order to input more information.
