Spoof Amazon email

Post by LadyKestrel » Sat Dec 14, 2019 3:09 pm

I got my second spoof email today telling me that there are several problems with my account on Amazon. I went directly to the website and chatted with customer service to find out if there was anything they wanted to do with it. The person I spoke to said I should attach it to another email and send it to stop-spoofing@amazon.com, but I can't make an attachment from my email account. Should I just forward it?
Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

What email are you using? Some programs allow you to attach en email as an "item." I would think if you forward it, with a note explaining it, that would work just as well.

I usually just forward, since I've already opened up the email.

After getting my forwarded email back, I realized I forgot the hyphen between stop and spoofing. All's well now and I got a reply thanking me and warning me not to click on the link in the email.

By the way, it took me a couple of beats to recognize you here, Drac. Is that your cat posing as a tree decoration? :santa:

It is indeed! A picture from about 2007 when she was just a year old. Although she's 13 now and has some issues, she's not too old to climb into the tree and knock all the ornaments off! I count 8 of them on the floor in both the living and dining rooms! I put them back and she just takes them off again!

Heh. That reminds me of a t-shirt I saw: We know the world isn't flat because cats would have knocked everything off it by now. :)

Now, that's excellent! And quite appropriate. It's why I only have unbreakable ornaments!
