Report a Phishing or Spoofed E-mail

We take phishing and spoofing attempts on our customers very seriously. If you're still not certain whether the e-mail is from Amazon, or you'd like to report that you received a phishing e-mail, please contact us.

Do not open any unsolicited attachments.

We'll never send you unsolicited e-mail attachments. If you receive an e-mail that says it's from Amazon but has an attachment, report it to us.

Never click links in a suspicious e-mail.

The links may have identifiers that tell the sender your e-mail address is valid so they can send you more spam, or the sites they go to may attempt to trick you into giving up your personal information (like your password) or try to install malicious software on your computer.

Note: If you've already clicked a link in a suspicious e-mail or opened an attachment, you should take steps to protect your system. Get tips on protecting your system.

To report a phishing or spoofed e-mail:
  1. Do one of the following:
    • Open a new e-mail and attach the e-mail you suspect is fake.

      Note: Sending this suspicious e-mail as an attachment is the best way for us to track it.

    • If you can't send the e-mail as an attachment, you can forward it.
  2. Send the e-mail to stop-spoofing@amazon.com.

Note: Amazon cannot respond to all e-mails it receives at stop-spoofing@amazon.com. If you have specific questions about your account, please contact us.
