Perhaps you’ve already received the email offering your “Amazon coupons” just for filling out a survey. Let’s see, would I want to give away my personal information to a company I don’t know for coupons they say I can use on Amazon, but that aren’t from Amazon. My answer is a resounding NO! If yours is anything other than that, you’re ripe for this scam. Here’s what that email looks like. In the original email, the two lines of blue text are links to the sender’s website.

There’s also a “Start Now” button along with an unsubscribe link, but there is no Amazon logo or anything that looks remotely official about this email. The email I received went to a site at oszo.net, which Web of Trust reports as having a very poor reputation. In other words, they’re probably phishing for your information.
The nice thing about this email is that it has no typos or grammatical errors. How nice, a scammer that can spell. The bad news is that I’ve received this one from the same source multiple times. I’m not about to use their unsubscribe button to remove myself from their list because if they aren’t legitimate, all that will do is give them more information. So, here’s my challenge: who are you oszo.net? Why are you sending me this email? Can you give me proof that you’re for real and that your “Amazon coupons” are legitimate? I’m waiting.
