Amazon Phishing Scam - "Security Notice - an Attempt to Sign in to Your Account from an Unrecognised Device"

The email message below, which appears as an Amazon security notice, claiming there was an attempt to sign into the recipient's account from an unrecognised device, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was not sent by Amazon, so recipients of the same email message should delete it and should never follow the instructions in it. Amazon customers should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their online accounts, they should instead, go directly to Amazon’s website and sign into their accounts from there. This way, Amazon customers will never need to worry about phishing scams.

The link in the fake Amazon email message goes to an Amazon phishing website, where potential victims will be asked to sign in. Now, any attempts to sign into the fake website will send the potential victims’ Amazon account credentials to the thieves who created the scam. Once the thieves are in possession of their potentials victims’ credentials, they will hijack their accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

Amazon customers who have already attempted to sign into the phishing website, should change their passwords and contact Amazon immediately.

    I have been having a similar issue. I get the message "Amazon security alert: Unusual sign-in attempt detected" when I sign on to Amazon. Amazon sends me an email with a link I have to click on. Once I click on it I can use the Amazon website. IT DOES NOT REQUIRE ME TO ENTER THE LOGIN ID OR PASSWORD a second time!

    This looks like a phishing attempt, BUT:

    I get the message only when I go directly to the amazon website using the www.amazon.com address. When I sign on, I get the error message and it won't recognize that I am signed on.

    Amazon sends me an email. All the links in the email go directly to the Amazon website.

    When I click on the link I am signed on to Amazon WITHOUT HAVING TO ENTER MY USER ID AND PASSWORD A SECOND TIME. I can continue to use Amazon until close the browser, and the next time I have to go through this again.

    My security software can find nothing wrong.

    But here is the clincher: I get this message every time I sign on to Amazon, even when I use different computers or devices, and even if I sign on from a different location using someone else's computer. In other words, this is not tied to a specific device, it is tied to my Amazon account itself.

    The first time I got this message was after I tried to sign on to Amazon when I was tired and accidently entered the wrong password a couple of times.

    Because I get this message no matter where I try to sign on and no matter what device I use, it is obviously CONNECTED TO THE AMAZON WEBSITE ITSELF, AND NOT TO ANY PARTICULAR DEVICE.

    I do not know if this is a scam or not, but... all day today, I have been getting an "Unusual sign-in attempt" and then a code is sent to my phone. I have been an Amazon customer for 10 years and this is the first time this has ever happened to me. The problem is, the box you enter the authentication code into never loads. That makes me think it's to encourage me to click some other link on the page which may take me to some sort of fake sign-in page.
