Here are some tips to determine if an email, phone call, text message, or webpage is not from Amazon.com.
If you received correspondence regarding an order you didn't place, it likely wasn't from Amazon.com. For more information, go to
Visit Report Suspicious Emails, Phone Calls, Text Messages, or Webpages for more information.
Don't open any attachments or click any links from suspicious emails or text messages. If you've already opened an attachment or clicked a suspicious link, go to Protect Your System.To increase the security of your account, we recommend enabling Two-Step Verification. For more information, see Enable Two-Step Verification.
Suspicious or fraudulent emails, text messages, or webpages not from Amazon.com may contain:
Note: Legitimate Amazon websites have a dot before "amazon.com" such as http://"something".amazon.com. For example, Amazon Pay website is https://pay.amazon.com/. We'll never send emails with links to an IP address (string of numbers), such as http://123.456.789.123/amazon.com/. If the link takes you to a site that is not a legitimate amazon domain, then it is likely phishing.
Note: Go to Your Orders to see if there is an order that matches the details in the correspondence. If it doesn't match an order in Your Account in Amazon.com, or in another Amazon international website, the message isn't from Amazon.
Note: Go to Your Orders. If you aren't prompted to update your payment method on that screen, the message isn't from Amazon.
While some departments at Amazon will make outbound calls to customers, Amazon will never ask you to disclose or verify sensitive personal information, or offer you a refund you do not expect.
We recommend that you report any suspicious or fraudulent correspondence. Visit Report Suspicious Emails, Phone Calls, Text Messages, or Webpages for more information.
