The email is more likely to trick customers because it looks legitimate. The message is emblazoned with Amazon colours and uses the official logo.
The subject lines reads: “We could not confirm the address associated with your Amazon account.”
The email includes a short message that explains Amazon could not confirm the address or other personal information associated with the account, Essex Live reported.
Before you can access your account again, it says you must ‘verify’ all of your information. To complete the verification, it asks you to click the link in the message.
