my account was hacked into yesterday. the person changed my email so i could no longer access it. I looked online and saw that many people have been hacked in the past 36 hours and its always through Amazon.de and the email address always ends with @mail.ru
It is super frustrating because I rely on amazon so much and but amazon's investigation team told me that while they investigate all the accounts that have been hacked, the accounts must be deactivated.
I'm also terrified of being a victim of identity theft, i am in the process of reordering new cards and changing passwords.
if you use amazon i highly recommend changing your log in to the 2 step verification process. to avoid this happening to you
