  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Amazon trash. by Ken Dunn on 1 October 2013 7:46pm
Someone is using Amazon.co.uk to try to tell people they have placed an order. I got an e-mail in my trash with ADN-4920539-3661198 as an order number. If it was Amazom themselves they have lost a prospective customer. If it was a spammer I have deleted the e-mail. I didn't open the e-mail to see the phantom order.

Thanks for the warning, Ken.

I checked the Amazon site and they do have a warning about this type of e-mail. I didn't have to go through the palaver they suggested as I don't have any orders with them.

I've had several of these and so has Zak. I looked on the Amazon site for somewhere to send them (as often firms ask people to send them spam purporting to be from them) and as Ken says, there is a warning but all it says is to check your current order numbers (easy to do) and if emails do not tally, delete them. Easy.

We often use Amazon and it is excellent; good prices and good service.
