Hello Dear Customer,
We have faced some problems with your account, So Please update your account details. If you do not update your account within 24 hours (from opening this email) will be officially permanently disabled.
We hope to see you again soon.
Amazon customers who have already been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their account password immediately, before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.
It is recommended that Amaozon customers go directly to www.amazon.com when they receive email notifications, instead of clicking the link in the emails. This will pevent them from unknowingly visiting fake or phishing Amazon websites.
