Hi all, I've just received this email....... Do you think it's a scam to get me bank details, I've checked my Amazon account and there's nothing there. Does anyone have a contact email for Amazon, can't seem to find how to contact them. Thanks.

0800 496 1081 - this number should work

or amazon.co.uk/help/ - go to need more help and then contact us

also it sounds like a phishing email, if you right click on the "here" part of the email, and select copy link location, you can then post the link in the comments so someone can tell you.

I saw this as a scam on Facebook a few day ago, when you 'click here' to enter your details they can access your Amazon details

I would Call Amazon. I had a similar thing happen but when I went into my account all previous orders and my details had disappeared too and I think that was a security measure by Amazon. I called them and they told me what had happened and were very helpful.
Also check your bank account to make sure nothing was taken out!x

Yes sounds fishy to me. Ring Amazon or email cust services yourself

If there's no order showing in your Amazon account then it's obviously a scam

If it says Dear Customer and not your actual name, then it's a phishing email.

Its a scam, had similar email plus when you make an order, you get a confirmation e-mail anyway.

Instead log into your own amazon accounts. If anything has been ordered using your account, it will be listed in your order history and as mentioned you will get confirmation e-mail
Block the e-mail and put on your spam list and delete

here

this is from the amazon forums, same email to someone else, says it is a scam

Yep, thanks, I've checked bank accounts and nothing has gone out, thank goodness.
Thank for your help.

These companies always use your Name, anytime you get one that addresses you as Customer or by your email, treat it as suspicious.

If you hover your mouse pointer over the link, it will show the destination in the bottom left corner of the screen without clicking it.

I once got this kind of email from apple.
But of course some details looked fishy like the senders email!!
It said that is for purchasing xxxx game, if you didn't then click this etc.

Give away when they say if you enjoyed receiving this email, as if they would likely say that, like you would enjoy receiving any kind of email like this. It's worded to catch out those most likely to fall for it and the least suspecting. But apart from that it would be hard to tell.
Also is it normal to have Amazon core? In their address at the bottom
