There are several new scams aimed at Amazon Sellers. One of the most popular is a spoof email claiming your account has been suspended or blocked. NOTE: This notice can come by email or telephone. When a spammer phones they will tell you they are sending special codes you need to use to log in. By email, there will be a link to click. DO NOT REPLY OR TAKE THE ACTIONS THEY SUGGEST UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
REMEMBER – Amazon will NEVER contact you in any way with a request for your log-in information. If you get a communication from Amazon you are concerned about – just log into Seller Central directly (Do not use any links in emails to do this) and open a support ticket asking if the communication from Amazon was real.
This post is specifically about Amazon, but beware – similar things are happening from PayPal scammers as well – including fake phone calls
