Amazon Scam

It looks like some thing happened at Amazon. I’ve not responded to any phishing attempts, but my account as locked down as a precaution.

Dear Robert M. Knight,

This is an important message from

As a precaution, we’ve reset your password because you may have been subject to a “phishing” scam.

Here’s how phishing works:

A scam artist sends an e-mail, which is designed to look like it came from a reputable company such as a bank, financial institution, or retailer like, but is in fact a forgery. These e-mails direct you to a website that looks remarkably similar to the reputable company’s website, where you are asked to provide account information such as your e-mail address and password. Since that web site is actually controlled by the phisher, they get the information you entered.

1. Go to and click the “Your Account” link at the top of our website.

2. Click the link that says “Forgot your password?”

3. Follow the instructions to set a new password for your account.

Please choose a new password and do not use the same password you used with us previously.

Thank you for your interest in

My account is safe, but as suggested, I will change my password. As another precaution I removed payment information as well.
