Beware Amazon Scam!

So this is the first time I have gotten an email from Amazon that I thought sounded strange. I have gotten hundreds of emails from people in Nigeria and such asking to wire transfer millions of dollars to my account but never anything from amazon. Turns out after I signed in via the email I received I took a second look at the email address it was sent from and the red flag went up right away! It was sent from where as all communications from Amazon come from an email provider. Not only that but the wording of the entire email just sounded strange:

This is the email I received and without thinking I clicked a link (now disabled for your safety) and signed in. Well I had to ask Amazon if it truly was from them just to be sure and this is what they told me:

The e-mail you received wasn't from For your protection, do not respond to it, and do not open any attachments or click any links it contains.

We recommend that you open a new e-mail and attach the e-mail you suspect is a fake, then send the e-mail to

If you responded to the e-mail or visited a linked website but didn't provide any personal information (such as your login or password), your account information should still be safe. However, if you did respond or if you visited a forged website and entered your login and password (or any other personal information), we recommend that you update your password immediately by going to Your Account ( and selecting "Change Account Settings." If you provided financial information, you may want to contact your bank or credit card provider. 

So just a precaution be careful of people trying to rob you blind! Some people are just horrible!
