The e-commerce giant sent a message to its customers who had received an email purporting to come from the company including the warning which says that their email addresses and names had been leaked.
Many of the registered users received the warning email from Amazon but the customer didn’t feel its NOT a genuine mail and originally comes from Amazon.
Later Amazon’s UK press office acknowledged that the email was genuine, saying only: “We have fixed the issue and informed customers who may have been impacted,” according to Register.
Turns out that weird data breach notification email from Amazon *is* real….
Amazing lack of detail, and plenty of reasons why people felt it could be dodgy.

Amazon claims that it data breach incidents learned due to “technical error” and they said We have fixed the issue and informed customers who may have been impacted.
Also, the company said, This is not a result of anything you have done, and there is no need for you to change your password or take any other action.
Amazon didn’t disclose any technical details for the data breach incidents and also they didn’t revealed how many of the customers was affected due to this Data breach.
