That code just gave me access to your Amazon account. I see you purchased 2 extra large dragon dildos last year.

Any email that gives you a link to click on for "verification" purposes is fake and phishing.

I think all companies that do send out these types of emails never gives you a link to click on for any type of account verification.

I like hovering over the sender email address to see where its from. Fakes usually come from a long mess of characters @somesketchyname.com. Those call for instant trashbin. If the email address LOOKS somewhat legit, i'll just log into my account from a new browser window and just poke around for anything suspicious looking.

Ryo-Ohki is still being judged by the masses

All's been said above but in any case, Amazon can and will lock you out of your account if they suspect anything (in my case, a cancelled debit order was still lingering at the bank and preventing me from any other operation), this made me attempt several times an order and first Amazon locked me out, then they made me ring a call center.

But every time the mail notice was perfectly clear and the sender was "amazon.fr", not some shady domain.

In your case the stuff you posted was verbatim from the email including the random numbers instead of letters or is this an encoding issue ?

yeah, there was also a link to a form to fill out. hovering the email addy it gives me an ID # starting with amz. hovering the link gives appdatanetwork.com

Whenever you get a login attempt email or verification email or anything for an account you have, don't click the email link, no matter how legitimate it seems, just go to the website normally, login, and check to see if anything has listed.


I've gotten probably a half dozen emails claiming my google account had a login attempt from a new device that look totally legit, and haven't even been that suspect in the hover-over popup of the link, but if I login to my google account separately, there's no evidence of an attempt.


Any well designed system is going to be able to show you that information from the web/official interface, so it shouldn't be necessary to use an email link in any case, and using the official interface effectively eliminates the chance you're being phished unless the whole thing is hacked.

My guess is that they were supposed to use formatting to hide the numbers, but failed miserably. The numbers are there just to try and get around the phishing detection.
