Suddenly there is a surge of Scam mails supposedly from Amazon. 6 a day
Tell them to send the goods anyway and you'll pay later...

If I look in my spam folder I guess I get 10 or 20 a day. Not more or less than usual.

Another scam but supposed to be from Alibaba. All in the same style. Not sure what happens if one clicks on the order number?

Re: New Scam, fake whatsApp Email

Who the **** cares what's in your spam inbox. Are you going to make a thread about every single email from it?

Dumb people will get tricked either way, your posts won't help, they won't even find them. 419 scams have a long history of successes. If you're afraid of clicking on random links, you need to get yourself up to speed on modern computer security. Virtual machines aren't just for crazy expensive servers anymore
