Amazon Prime Day Winner Scam: How It Works

We received a few emails today in regards to a potential Amazon Prime Day Winner Scam. Consumers get text messages on their phones claiming to be from a fake Amazon Prime office regarding a MacBook Pro award. More precisely, the sender informs the victim that they are winners of a special Amazon Prime Day draw. To get the company to deliver the MacBook Pro, the recipient has to access a website to fill out a questionnaire survey.

The domain name used by criminals is www.cxzhj.info. Do not click it; it is not from Amazon Prime. Below you can take a look at a screenshot with a bogus message. Here it is:

The content of the notification states: “The Amazon Prime Day winner is [your real name]. Congratulations with winning this new MacBook Pro. Click the link to collect it. www.cxzhj.info/azIHqxTVoj“.

Amazon Prime Day Winner Text: How to Avoid

The Amazon Prime Day Winner Scam is one of the plethoras of phishing scams, whether it is about MacBook Pro, iPhones, or tablets. It follows the same style as the USPS Text Message and the FedEx Delivery Text scams. These links and pages contain – just like in many other Amazon Prime scams – a tracking link informing the recipients that the company is having difficulty delivering the item. The hook varies, but the bottom line is that clicking the link takes you to a fake form asking for personal information. Alternatively, it could download malware onto your device.

If you get one of these MacBook Pro texts, don’t click the link. Look for grammar mistakes such as “congratulations with winning.” Delete the message and keep doing what you are doing. There are many phone scams that you need to avoid these days, and this tricky Amazon text message is one of them.
