Email Scams and ADHD

      No Comments on Email Scams and ADHD

    I am so sick of being sent email scams where somebody is trying to get my credit card information. I usually just forward the emails to the abuse department of what ever company the email is pretending to be from and go about the rest of my day. However I got one today that just really set me off. Maybe it’s because in the past week I have also been bombarded with the Sober Worm that keeps being sent to me too.

The one I got today claimed to be from Amazon and claimed that they had reason to believe that somebody was trying to use my account to illegally sell items on Amazon. They claim that they are investigating this situation and that I need to confirm my identity with Amazon. They provide a link for me to go to and log into my Amazon account. The link in the email itself appears to go to amazon.com but actually takes those who click on it to tot-amz2.com. However the page looks just like Amazon and has actual links to Amazon.
