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 😂

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

Update: support refuses to help me via email, because they need me to call and confirm my postal address to prove my identity.

They don't even seem to realize this is exactly where the entire dilemma started 😩

Also I simply don't know the postal address the hijacker changed my account to.

Last but not least, they can't help because the account is now deleted. They sure do seem to still store a whole lot of data associated with it still, though.

I'm like: I can't get in my e-mail address!
What about "can't get in my e-mail address" do you not understand’
