My thinking board
My thoughts about this & that...
I got this email that made me do a bit of investigation
I never subscribed to Amazon Prime, so the flag went up.
I always check where the email is coming from, so I checked. It says fro Amazon, but the email address given to Mailchimp is firstname.lastname@example.org.
DEFINITELY not Amazon
Check who the sender is
This is what you'll see in the pop-up window
Check the sender's address
This is Amazon Headquarters's address
Now wait a minute!
Abbie Cakes looks like a legit business!
Oh, my! Those cakes look beautiful and delicious!
But what's going on here?
Abbie Cakes doesn't look like they'd use dirty tricks to sell cakes!
Check it yourself:
What I think, they might have hired a marketing company that use dirty tricks to to entice people to the site so the site owner can see results as increased visitor numbers.
Well, I'm going to send them the link to my little investigation and they can look into this how their business is used to send emails with false information.
