Apparently someone managed to call Amazon's support, tricked and convinced them into changing my account's email, ordered something, and eventually proceeded to delete my entire account.

Now Amazon's support refuses to help me for data protection reasons πŸ˜‚

Looks like it's enough to know someone's address to hijack their account.


@fribbledom in my experience you can get support to bypass almost every security check, I've only ever used it to recover my own account but still. Humans are almost always the biggest security flaw.
