Amazon new policy—Your account confirmation may go wrong

The link under HERE below was like this (it was on one long line):

<a target="_blank"href="

Notice that the email looks really darn good otherwise! Well... beside a few spaces missing and an unbeliviable story that is.

Now if you look at the small print, that's where you can have a good laugh. The email is a Special Event or a Promotion... Maybe the former applies. And the home page of Amazon is incrypted. And they use a new technology called SLL (I'm sure you know he means SSL.)

And if you look at the link above, notice that it includes "sign-out" and not "sign-in"... Interesting 8-).

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.
