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.
