  1. Thank you for advice. I work in an Anti-Money Laundering department and in my experience you should not receive an email regarding a problem with your order. Usually a letter would be sent out. If you’re in doubt, call the customer service department at Amazon and ask them about the email.

  2. I had one of these in the autumn, check the email address it was sent from as its generally not an amazon email address. I then forwarded it to Amazon fraud department, I never heard anything back but I also never recieved another email.
