    might be a phishing mail, check the urls in the email if they are really pointing to amazon and check the mail header for the sender IP!

    There aren't actually any links in the email. Have a look at the sender as well:

    It sound like something that could really happen (list of leaked e-mails). But contact amazon, and see if they tell you if it's mail from them or not.

    It seems legit, why not just change for the sake of precaution?

    Cheers,

    I received the same message when I logged into my Amazon account from a different computer, in a different physical location. It's just a security measure and I can confirm that, for me, everything was legit. I used the 'forgot password' function and was able to change it easily.
