fake amazon cancellation order email scam fraud marketing strategy from hacker doing spam mail to increase traffic to their site

Here’s another spam scam fraud email, also known as fake advertisement scheme. What this type of email does is, the contents are simple and very realistic, make you think you did order something and it’s being cancel, something like that, but again very realistic. For this one, it’s not a virus, but sort of advertising scheme for another website. When you click on the link, it take you to a completely different website, and it could be legit and could not be legit, it’s a spam mail to get traffic to their site. Stay away, don’t click, it’s either porn or illegal contents or trying to sell you something that you want but probably not real legal items. So before you click on any link, move your mouse over to see if it’s the site is what the content say, in this case, the email content said amazon, but the link when mouse over to click, it said some other site which advertise viagra and sex enhancement medicine pill crap.
