So here’s a new one: a spoofed Amazon email claiming that Amazon has detected an unauthorized attempt to reset the password on the recipient’s account. A six digit code is provided along with instructions to call a phone number to “verify your identity.” A copy of this phish is above.

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 website in order to input more information. Here are two scam alert sites with people filing reports:
