SCAM ALERT: Greetings from Amazon.com

(Before reading the rest of the post, check our disclaimer, Thank you)

Greetings from Amazon.com.

Please take the time to read this message – it contains important

information about your Amazon.com account.

At Amazon.com, we routinely perform reviews of orders and customer

accounts to protect our customers. After careful review of your

account, we believe it may have been accessed and used by a

third-party to make purchases without your permission, but it appears

they did not use your credit card to make these purchases. It seems

that someone obtained your personal account and/or financial

information elsewhere, and used it on Amazon.com to access your

account.

We have closed your account effective immediately because of this

possible unauthorized account activity. If this recent account

activity (Laptop) was authorized by you, please reply to

this message as soon as possible and we will reactivate your account.

It is important to know that Amazon.com accounts can only be accessed

by those who know personal, specific information about you and your

account — such as your email address, Amazon.com password, physical

address, credit card information, and other details. As mentioned

above, it appears someone obtained some of your personal account

and/or financial information elsewhere and used it on Amazon.com to

access your account.

Please know that Amazon.com employees will *never* ask for your

password, nor will we ever send an email asking you to verify personal

information.

Although it appears someone did access your Amazon.com account, they

would not have been able to view your full credit card numbers as they

are never displayed on our site. However, it is possible your credit

card numbers may have been compromised at the time your other personal

information was obtained. Therefore, we suggest you carefully review

recent credit card statements to check for any unusual activity or

unauthorized charges.

Please follow the link below:

and update your account information.

If the link in your email message does not work, please copy and paste

it into your browser.

In the future, you can protect your Amazon.com password and account by

following some of these safety tips:

———————————————————————–

1. Choose a good password: Use at least 8 characters and a combination

of letters and numbers. Do not use single dictionary words, your name

or other personal info that can be easily obtained, or a password that

contains part of your email address.

2. Password protection: Avoid using the same password at multiple

sites or for your email account. Do not share your password with

others.

3. Account protection: Be cautious of unsolicited emails that appear

to come from reputable online shops or services that ask you to submit

personal information such as your credit card number, email address,

and password. Often these emails will look as though they come from

the company you’re familiar with, and the email will ask you to click

on a link and “sign in”. You should never provide this kind of

personal information in an unsolicited email.

———————————————————————–

Please accept our most sincere apologies for any resulting

inconveniences, and feel free to contact us if you have any further

questions or concerns by writing to account-alert@amazon.com.

Sincerely,

Andrew W.
