Authorised Push Payment  

These scams are conducted online over emails, social networking sites, and text messages. Scammers will get in touch saying you need to confirm or verify your account by clicking a link. They will deceive victims by saying that you are eligible for a tax rebate, or your account (e.g., Amazon or Uber) needs verifying. The minute you click on their link and login with your details, they will hack your account and misuse it.  

Beware, a lot of other Authorised Push Payment scams occur once the scammer already has some information on you. They mimic the invoice of the company that you make regular payments to. In a glance, their email will seem legitimate to you.
