I just got an email saying my amazon purchase had been cancelled & I knew I hadn't ordered anything recently so I looked up & found out it was spam so I thought I would share 

Summary: Not content with sending fake Amazon confirmation emails, the outfit sending out the Canadian pharmacy spam is now sending out fake Amazon.com order cancellation emails, too, claiming that your Amazon order has been cancelled. "Amazon.com - Your Cancellation (0046-68878-96071)" says the email's subject (although the "order number" may change) - but of course the link to check "ORDER INFORMATION" really takes you to a Canadian pharmacy spam site, hawking Viagra, Cialis and the like. In the example below, the fake cancellation contains links to http://www.dinnerinperu.com/quadratical, which redirects to http://weightbreezy.com, which is a Canadian pharmacy spam site.

no not yet...there is so much spam out there it would be hard for them to do much about it. I marked it as spam on my computer & may send them a small message

You can hover over links imbedded in your emails and view them before you click. I simply type them in myself in another window rather than getting phished.
