I received this message,

Greetings from Amazon.in Per your request, we have changed the e-mail address associated with your account

The e-mail address associated with your account has been changed. The old address was ub****dar**@gmail.com. The new address is [email protected].

Should you need to contact us for any reason, please know that we can give out order information only to the name and e-mail address associated with your account.

Thank you again for shopping with us.

I immediately called CC they agreed with me and said there are also some transaction after the account got hacked. I asked him whether I will receive money he said my money is safe and they have put the account on hold.
Will I receive the money? 🥺🥺🥺 It had a balance of about 1100

Do you use same password for accounts on multiple sites?

Ideally shouldnt be possible w/o email access. This is serious matter. I read similar hacking incidents b4 too. Better to use 2fa atleast for primary accounts.

Yes 2fa is very important now… OP must have shared prime details or any other details… Nobody can hack Amazon just like that

Same happened to me ..

I was stunt for few minutes though ..

someone bought gift card .. changed email id ..

Called up cc they said it was my mistake as i didn’t had 2fa on it .. then my question was why were i not asked if i wanted to changed my email id and long conversation .. but in end it was refunded back .

Just stick to them that they need to give it back and raise online complain ( won’t help though)

Nobody have to call directly.
Use web services to bomb calls or messages.
