Default New Amazon.com & Facebook phishing scams

I just received a very official phishing email from Amazon.com - subject line is Amazon.com - Your Cancellation (19-599-48468). I just wanted to warn anyone else that this is a scam - do not click on the link.

I also received a deactivation notice from a false Facebook account - Facebook <[email protected]>

Just a warning in case you have not seen these before.

There is one from AT&T, as well. I get them all the time. Says if you don't give them your info, your account will be cancelled. I called AT&T, it is not them!!! DO NOT REPLY to these emails!!

I got that one from Amazon. Since I do order things from Amazon from time to time, I opened it and my virus protection blocked the virus!! Boy, was that a close one for sure!!!

Yep, those emails are in our inbox daily. Has anyone been having trouble with yahoo? Strange things are happening there, too - like in the middle of reading my inbox, a huge ad fills the screen and there is no way to get it off,,,there is no way that I can contact yahoo directly that THEY WILL RESPOND!! It seems like EVERYTHING is going nuts!!
