Careful with your credit-card

Watch out for hackers. The other day a friend of mine received an email and a link to He opened the link and it asked him to verify his credit card details (because there had been some problems with hackers!!). He checked that the page linked up to Amazon (which it did), the page looked just like all of their links and linked in and out of their site. The web link also stated it was a secure page to give credit-card details. But to his surprise he later received another email stating that the hackers had designed the webpage and had stolen credit-card details of several people. Moral of the story ….be careful the hackers are getting smarter.
