    I got an email from Amazon today with the following text

    This isnt good on many levels.
    They dont say how it happened, what exact information was leaked - probably more than just the name and email, who it was leaked to, possible adverse issues that could result ...
    To cap that they sent it using a no reply address (order-update@amazon.co.uk) leaving me sat there thinking wth?

    Has anyone else received this?

    I haven't gotten anything.
    There is no real info to go on in the email here, but I'm assuming your name and email was visible on your reviews and possibly to sellers you have purchased from.

    Make sure it's a real sender and not fake. If there were leak, it would be reported on news and on your local Amazon website.

    I would look into the origin of that email, especially if other UK residents that use Amazon did not get the same message.

    No mail here as of now. Still, shouldn't happen, this is even more weird compared to a hacker's breach, they leaked sensitive data themselves :rolleyes:
