Amazon takes your account security very seriously. Amazon will never email you and 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.

    I also received this exact message in Virginia. Fortunately I did not call. There are however several other sites that pop up when you search this number on the internet that appear to legitimize this number. Thanks for the warning.

    I received the exact message you posted above. I called this number yesterday and was asked to call back when I was home so that I could have access to my laptop. I was told my account would be temporarily canceled. I thought it was a bit strange and I'm glad I looked it up! Thank you for this information/warning!
