    I have not ordered a children's potty chair,nor do I require one.
    I've no idea who the recipient is from Basingstoke but I fear she has been hacked in some way.
    The email somehow found it's way into my inbox,the Amazon logo looks quite convincing and I can see how it could fool some people.The scammers expect you to dispute the payment and ask for a full refund by clicking on the link within the email which I have removed so no one does.Then they prompt you to enter your bank account details,if you are daft enough to do this they will proceed to empty your bank account.

    She's not relevant to it. As you said, they just want your Amazon/bank details.

    How sad. Nothing's sacred anymore is it? After reading about the 3 german students in a recent post, then reading this I don't know what the world's coming to!
    Much confusion!

    I did delete it but not before sending it to Amazon as a phishing scam,they have an email address to do this,whether it will do any good who knows?There must be a way to track down these scammers.
    From now on I'm going to treat people like they treat me,some should be glad,some should be scared.
