    Just received notification of an amazon delivery complete with a photo of the package on the doorstep. That's never happened before. Maybe too many people claim they didn't get delivery and they want to prove the delivery?

    When I get an Amazon package delivered by Amazon (instead of UPS or mail), they always email the delivery info and picture of my porch with the package. This has been going on for months now. :D The picture also shows up in my order history on the Amazon website.

    It is also nice for the delivery person to have a record that they did indeed deliver the package(s).
    I think it's such a great idea.

    Due to the Coronavirus, Amazon.com has announced that it will be delivering only essential items. I think there's a list of what these might include, but I don't feel like looking for it. I have heard that it includes cat food though, so that's good. However, it seems to me that if people are encouraged to remain indoors, it would help if they'd be able to order things online, given that there needn't be any contact with the delivery people. I could be wrong, but I am thinking that if people are kept home from school and work, and they can't order stuff online, they're going to go shopping at whatever stores are still open.

    I know that, for myself, I work online, and if I could order whatever I needed or wanted online, it would be no trouble at all for me to remain home.

    Sydney's two major supermarket chains have shut down their online delivery service due to continued panic buying. These selfish people are spoiling it for others. So this means that the markets themselves are chock full of people over normal making it simply bedlam. It is almost like survival of the fittest.

    Anybody ever get this email?

    I never knowingly enrolled in Amazon Prime. The card on my Amazon account is valid. Don't intend to click on the attachment.

    @Nancy Hart - That's the kind of message you'd get if the card they had on file for you had expired or didn't have sufficient funds to renew your Prime membership, or if you tried to enroll in Prime but your card didn't work. But, I don't know if you'd get that message by email. I think that's the message they post the next time you log into your Amazon account. If you didn't enroll in Prime, it might be possible that you accidentally clicked on a button to do so but, since your card is valid, you feel sure that you didn't enroll, and it came by email, my best guess is that it's a phishing attempt, which is when someone uses a proxy account to fake a message from Amazon.com, hoping that you'll click on it to correct your credit card information, inadvertently giving this information to a scammer.

    Here's a link to the suspicious email help section on Amazon.com, where you could report it. -- Amazon.com

    Looks like spam looking for information...

    I logged on to Amazon account and there were no messages. This was the header for the email. I think it's phishing.

    On another note I ordered a Dell mouse on February 14th and it's scheduled to arrive by March 30th. Turns out it's coming directly from China. This is the tracking report. :confused: :D

    Will our country permit it to come through?

    The URL Amazon14.com is your answer. 14 is the key, it is NOT an Amazon site.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Also a slightly odd wording... "please find the document attached, and follow the on-screen instructions."

    I forwarded it to the Amazon site Ken linked, and they sent a noreply thank you message .
