I received this scam-like email - thanks for verifying El Reg
This is a terrible email because it looks like a phishing scam. Because it didn't mention an action it wanted me to take such as clicking on a link, it wasn't obvious how this email would benefit a scammer. I studied the email header but it looked pretty genuine. Then I took to Google and it pointed me to this El Reg article.
I've spent £1,000's with Amazon over the last 13 years and I would expect a decent email from them including an APOLOGY for disclosing my personal details. It doesn't even greet me by name or link to further information to explain in what way my details were disclosed, when the breach happened and how long it exposed my details for.
I feel really let down and would prefer never to use them again to teach them a lesson, but they obviously wouldn't even notice my missing custom and they know I'd lose out more than they would. I only hope the ICO have put their teeth in today.
Oh, Amazon, please stop recommending cat food to me by email and push notifications. I don't have a bloody cat, never had and never clicked on anything cat-like. How can I remove this from your dumb AI's brain? :-(
