These fake emails are after your Amazon login details!

We’ve had an increased number of reports about these fake emails purporting to be from Amazon. The subject line and content of the emails vary, but they all contain links leading to phishing websites designed to steal your Amazon login details.

Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it’s a scam. Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.​​​​​​​

Cheshire Police Notice:

We are currently making a concerted effort to direct members of the public to alternative methods of contact, to ensure that 101 is used just for crime. The alternatives include:

Face to Face – encouraging people to visit local stations/helpdesks or attend a local PCSO surgery.

General Contact Form (https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries) – this is for all general enquiries, advice, or to notify the police of a planned event, for example.

Contact an Officer Form (https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/contact-an-officer) – this is for anyone wishing to speak to a named officer allocated to their incident, and is useful for when officers are not on duty.

Incident Update Form (https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/incident-update-form) – similar to the ‘contact an officer’ form, this is to request an update on an incident.

Local Priorities Form (https://cheshire.police.uk/local-policing) – for if there is an ongoing issue in your area you wish to highlight as needing action.

Speeding Issues (https://cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-support/roads-and-vehicle-safety/speeding as above but specifically for speeding issues.

Social Media – General concerns can be raised to any of the Cyberbeat accounts (Facebook and Twitter), though recordable incidents or crimes ought to be directed through the other channels.

There is also a host of information on our website (https://cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-support) that the public may find answers to any enquiries they have without the need to call 101, so it’s always worth highlighting this in the course of your social media updates.’

And of course any member of the public or council can contact me at this email address….

There is concern that victims of previous Computer Software Service Fraud (CSSF) are being re-targeted for “owed money”. The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) reports that CSSF scammers are returning to contact previous victims, requesting that they pay money owed for a fake malware protection service they had provided. Alternatively, the fraudster will ask for a new subscription fee in return for protection from a new threat. The victims that have made payments to the fraudsters have done so via credit/debit card payments. In some instances threatening and aggressive language has been used against victims, as part of the attempt to coerce them into sending money.
