Amazon takes your account security very seriously. Amazon will never ask you to disclose or verify your Amazon password, credit card, or banking account number. If you receive a suspicious email with a link to update your account information, do not click on the link—instead, report the email to Amazon for investigation.

We hope to see you again soon.
