account—Account takeovers and unauthorized listings

Note: Dunno if Amazon really sends emails like these with a font size of 9pt, but I cannot read 9pt on my screen. Even on paper that's small. So I changed this email to 12pt which now I can mostly read without having to zooming.

Dear Customer,


- Due to recent account takeovers and unauthorized listings, Amazon is requesting a new account verification procedure. From time to time, randomly selected accounts (seller and/or buyer)are placed under an advanced updating process based on merchant accounts/bank relationsand on-file credit cards. Amazon may also request in an email message scanned/faxed copies of one or more photo ID's. Your account confirmation may go wrong if your credit card/bank account has expired, or if you have changed/replaced your credit card without letting us know about the change.

  • Your account is not suspended, but if in 36 hours after you receive this message your account is not confirmed we reserve the right to terminate your Amazon subscription.

  • If you received this notice and you are not an authorized Amazon account holder, please be aware that it is in violation of Amazon policy to represent oneself as an Amazon user. Such action may also be in violation of local, national, and/or international law.

  • Amazon is committed to assist law enforcement with any inquires related to attempts to misappropriate personal information with the intent to commit fraud or theft.

  • Information will be provided at the request of law enforcement agencies to ensure that perpetrators are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
