The links in the email message go to a fake Amazon web page. The website that is hosting the fake Amazon page that appears to be a legitimate website, but has been compromised by hackers, who have put the bogus Amazon web page on it.
Remember, never click on a link in an email message to sign-in or log into your Amazon account, and always look at your web browser's address bar to ensure that you are on Amazon's website and not some other fake or phishing website.
If you have already submitted your information on the fake Amazon web page, please change your Amazon password immediately, because, with your Amazon's username and password, the scammers will hijack your account.
