Phishing Scam target Amazon shoppers


Amazon shoppers are being targeted with a new phishing scam.  The Fraudster trick customers into purchasing expensive items at unrealistically low prices. The scam is run by a supposed Amazon merchant Sc-Elegance 
When customers attempt to check out, an error message appears stating that the following product is no longer available. The merchant will then contact the customer by email, claiming that there was some mistake and the item is still available and can be purchased by clicking on an Amazon-esque link in their email. The link leads to a fake Amazon payment site where all of the victim's Amazon login, payment and personal information are asked for.
Amazon shoppers are advised to be more cautious when making purchase.
