Together we can defeat scams (Amazon Email)

Post by thaterrormessage »

Our customers helped us take the fight to scammers last year by reporting suspicious emails, texts, and phone calls. Each report matters. In 2022, we made significant strides to protect our customers:


We initiated takedowns of more than 20,000 phishing websites and 10,000 phone numbers that were used as part of impersonation scams.
We referred 100s of bad actors across the globe to law enforcement to help them ensure these scammers are held accountable.
