Do not fall for this dangerous Amazon shopping scam

Like a dog seeing a squirrel, I can’t help but notice when a new text pops up on my iPhone. The little gray notification grabs my attention and I’m instantly pulled away from the task at hand. Plus, it looked important. It was, but only because it helped me identify a very dangerous and pernicious Amazon shopping scam.

With the Christmas shopping season in full swing, such scams are on the rise (opens in new tab) and most of us do at least some gift shopping through Amazon (the retailer reported more than $1 billion in sales (opens in new tab) during Black Friday).
