I get several like this every day, especially from banks that I didn't know I had opened an account in. Tick and delete has become my friend.

Wowza. Thanks for the alert. Always good to have these scams at the back of your mind.

I've just received an email and attachment purporting to be from Amazon. It thanks me for me order. My pc popped up with a red alert for a virus. It comes from auto.confirm1117 AT amazon.co.uk - it says. I expect the underlying address is very different. 

It has incorrectly addressed me and has one grammatical error - otherwise, it's getting close to being acceptable.

I thought I'd let everyone know as many of us probably order stuff from Amazon.

RE: Author Beware!

I had a quite convincing email off Amazon yesterday about the order I placed on September 26th. My first thoughts when it came into my inbox (and it wasn't flagged) was that my Paperwhite was about to be dispatched early. Then I saw it had a zip file, so delete button pressed asap.
