    I received an email from Amazon notifying me that a payment sent to me failed to go through. My information hasn't changed with them in years and my payments have been received recently, so I called customer support. The email and links used for the Amazon payments account was incorrect in the email, in addition to the wrong spelling of my last name and spelling and grammatical errors.

    So if you get this email from Amazon, please do not clink the links. Accounts which receive royalty payments from Amazon are affected; general Amazon purchaser accounts are not affected to my knowledge, but exercise caution with any emails from Amazon for the time being.

    The email (links snipped for safety):
