Spotting a scam

I just got this email. It’s a scam and I’ll share with you why you should not click on it.   

First off, it’s unlikely Amazon would use “X-Mas.” They are more likely to call it “Holiday” reward. 

Next, the urgency. I received this email late on December 21.  They want a response the very next day. Most legitimate promotions last much longer. 

Finally, check the email address. This is not legit. 

 

Stay alert and don’t fall for these scams during the holidays.
