my amazon account was hacked
« on: August 04, 2020, 06:50:46 PM »
I was almost scammed by an amazon hacker, i logged into my account and was told it was blocked and had to call a number where they proceeded to change my password.

Anyway i have the url that i went to, i must have typed amazon.com wrong. is there anything to do with the url? send it to amazon?

it was a pretty good fake i (almost) fell for

So to be clear, Amazon was not hacked?

Was your Amazon Password changed? You should reset it yourself, if they had access to your account you may want to get new credit cards. Check that your recovery email was not changed. You can file a report at https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

Thanks, I did reset the password, but what can they do with the last 4 digits of my card and my address? They didn't order anything on Amazon. I did cancel the card, just wondering.
