How to check if you received a scam email

  1. Google the details.

    Do a Google search for the persons name/company name that the email has come from.

  2. Confirm the details.

    Visit their website and look for a phone number or email address. Search for the website yourself. Do not assume the details in the email are valid.

  3. Confirm using the information you have found

    Using the details you have researched, call or email the business and ask them to verify the information within the email.

  4. Check if the email has been sent to multiple people

    Google snippets of the email text to see if the same format has been used in the past. eg “Army officer from Syria but now living with the United Nations on asylum”

  1. I’m getting a ton of these emails. I count 22 just today, luckily these have mostly ended up gmail’s spam folder. Some occasionally make it past the filter though.

    In addition to “InsanelyCoolGifts”, there are “Healthenrollment”, “Telsa Lighter”, “Canvas Prints” and an assortment of other senders, but they all seem to have the same structure of having an embedded link that goes to an amazon instance, which when opened (I did so in a virtual box) goes to a scam website that claims you won something, and wants you to enter personal details + a credit card.

    I’m a novice when it comes to sifting through the source email data, but is there any way to actually tell the true originating email or IP address?

    When I’ve gone through the embedded addresses, occasionally it’s repeated accounts on the cloud instances, but it seems like they’re constantly creating new ones, which surprises me since I thought you had to have a credit card linked to an account to sign up, even for free instances. I’ve reported this to amazon and wasibisys, but I’m not sure what else can be done.

    Is there a specific name for this kind of phishing email that uses a cloud instance? It might make searching for it easier, since adding anything regarding amazon gives me all kinds of unrelated scams.

    One example embedded URL-I purposefully added a space after the .com, I’d only open this in a virtual box to be safe:
