ALERT: Email: Fake Sales Receipts from Amazon - Phishing

In this situation called "Phishing" the object is to get the end user to click on a link within the email.  The email appears to be from Amazon (or some other high end online retailer) but the bad link will take you to a fake log-in page where - if the user attempts to log-in - they will steal your Amazon username and password.  In most cases the fake page will look exactly like the real page; some of the links in the email will go to the real page and some will go to the fake page.
