Important Info MY Amazon Privacy passed out?

I strongly suggest changing your Amazon password and your Amazon email address password. If you have a separate buyer account, change the passwords there as well.

The very fact, that the message tells you, not to change your password, is a very strong indication, that you should.

There are a couple reports, of the identical message, you received, on other security sites.


Edit to add:

CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD. DO NOT TRUST ANY DATA BREACH.

@bcmarketplace, I haven’t received that email (yet), but I’m really really hoping it wasn’t related to this issue:


#4

everything shows the email is direct from Amazon

even the deep hidden header is from them.


#5

That problem was resolved, that only the Seller sees the Seller’s personal name and is not disclosed to the Customer.


#6

Again, any responsible disclosure, always includes a suggestion to change passwords, anytime personally identifiable information is disclosed.

Rather be safe than sorry.

The headers are showing http - not https…


#7

On the Amazon UK forum, there is a thread about this exact same issue with hundreds of replies.

It looks like all Amazon sellers received the e-mail.


#8

Have received several phishing e-mails recently so would immediately expect as much if we did receive this one (which we have not).


#9

we received the same email just now
should we change the password?


#10

It is unbelievable. That is odd.


#11

I got this too!!! I am not happy!


#12

this is the header:
Authentication-Results: spf=pass (sender IP is 54.240.13.38)
the IP belongs to Amazon, so the email is real, no need to change the password.

was it the same IP?


#13

I wonder why the 10’s of million sellers didn’t get the email. You must be very special in the eyes of Amazon. :train2:


#14

got it too…could the message be more vague?

i have a chinese seller that somehow got my personal email address hounding me to change a product review…is THAT what they mean?

was my account info handed over to sellers or buyers or both??


#15

yes i got the same email just now for for USA as well as EU.


#16

We got it, too. About an hour ago.


#17

Me too.


#18

I got it just about an hour ago too. What a strangely worded message.


#19

Just got the same email.

With Amazon it’s always something sighs


#20

It’s as if a 10 year old composed the message…
