Amazon Account Suspension or Account Deletion Scams

Amazon is a popular online retailer, and as such, it is a target for scammers. One common scam involves sending text messages, emails, or making phone calls to Amazon customers claiming that their account has been suspended or will be deleted. The scammer will then try to trick the customer into clicking on a fraudulent link or providing personal information, such as their login credentials or payment information.

Here are some things to look out for if you receive a message from Amazon claiming that your account has been suspended or will be deleted:

  • The message will often be poorly written and may contain grammar or spelling errors.
  • The message may ask you to click on a link or provide personal information.
  • The message may create a sense of urgency, telling you that you need to act immediately to avoid having your account suspended or deleted.

If you receive a message that you think might be a scam, do not click on any links or provide any personal information. Instead, contact Amazon directly to verify the status of your account. You can contact Amazon customer service by phone, chat, or email.

Here are some tips to help you avoid Amazon account suspension/deletion scams:

  • Only ever sign in to your Amazon account on the official Amazon website or app.
  • Be wary of any messages that ask you to provide personal information, such as your login credentials or payment information.
  • Never click on links in messages from unknown senders.
  • If you are unsure about the authenticity of a message, contact Amazon customer service directly.

By following these tips, you can help protect yourself from Amazon account suspension/deletion scams.
