While the above looks innocent enough from AMAZON.COM, what made me dissect this email was when I hovered the AMAZON link. It is not going to AMAZON but going to an Indian porn server, which may host malicious code streaming app waiting for preys.

This is definitely a Phishing Scam.

The IP address was from someone in France in the city of Lomme, Nord Du Calais, bordering Belgium. He was probably using a VPN hosted in UK to log on to Yahoo.com in US, where he sent this SCAM email to me.

Let’s take a look at the Email Header below and dissect it. It clearly showed the email was a forgery and NOT FROM AMAZON.
