The Amazon Business Account Scam

Amazon provides a business service called the Amazon Business Account and it is increasingly popular for people keen to spend a significant proportion of their business purchases with Amazon.

The real Amazon business account does offer free shipping, cheap prices, pay by invoice etc. and it starts at £80 per year for Amazon Business Prime – which gives the free shipping etc.

However, scammers have realised this is another target market they can go after.

Emails appear to be from Amazon and extol the virtues of opening a free business account with Amazon.

But, they are scammers looking for your login and password and payment details.

The link you click may get you to a website that looks like Amazon, but it’s a fake. Once they have your details, they can set up accounts with Amazon and lots of other retailers in your name and you will get the bills to pay.

If you want to try Amazon Business then go to the Amazon website directly – do not click on links in emails that may be from scammers.

If you have any experiences with scammers, spammers or time-waster do let me know, by email.
