Heads Up! Phishing Scam Targeting Prime Video Subscriptions

Bexley Watch are sharing this to warn everyone about a phishing email circulating that claims a recent Prime Video subscription payment failed.

Here are the red flags:

  • The email is dated July 9th, 2024, but claims your payment failed for a subscription.
  • It uses scare tactics urging immediate action to update payment details.
  • The email includes a suspicious reference number ("ID953326") and a generic "Thank you, Prime Video Support Team" message.

This is a scam!

Here's what to do:

  • Do not click on any links in the email.
  • Do not enter any personal information.
  • Report the email as phishing to your email provider.

How to check your Prime Video subscription:

  • Log in to your Amazon account directly through https://www.amazon.com/ (not a link in the email).
  • Go to "Your Account" and navigate to "Prime Membership" to check your subscription status and payment information.

If you're concerned about your account:

  • Contact Amazon customer service directly through their website or app for assistance.

Please share this information with anyone who might have received this email.

By staying vigilant, we can protect ourselves and others from these scams.
