RCMP warn of Amazon Scams Making the Rounds

While many people find it convenient to shop online it is important to be aware that everything is not always as it seems.
Manitoba RCMP have become aware of a scam targeting Amazon subscribers. An order confirmation email arrives to the intended victim advising what was purchased, where the order will be sent, the total cost of the purchase, as well as a clickable button for order details. The common reaction is that the intended victim immediately identifies that they did not place this order – the mailing address is often incorrect as well – so they click on the order details button.
