Fake Amazon Cancellation Emails

I've noticed a lot of fake Amazon cancellation emails doing the rounds in my junk mail folder.

The con goes like this - the scammer sends an email to random addresses. I guess, from there, the trick is for the person who recieves the correspondence to either reply to the email (so the scammer knows the email is active) or to click on one of the links within the email.

An example can be found below:

I haven't replied nor have I clicked on the links, so I don't know what happens beyond that.

If you've received an email like this, and it has accidentally landed in a folder other than your spam mail, it's best to delete and move on.
