Your Amazon.com Password has Been Changed Email: Did It Come from Amazon?

This is an important message from Amazon.com
As a precaution, we’ve reset your Amazon.com password because you may have been subject to a “phishing” scam.
Here’s how phishing works:
A scam artist sends an e-mail, which is designed to look like it came from a reputable company such as a bank, financial institution, or retailer like Amazon.com, but is in fact a forgery. These e-mails direct you to a website that looks remarkably similar to the reputable company’s website, where you are asked to provide account information such as your e-mail address and password. Since that web site is actually controlled by the phisher, they get the information you entered.
