Lookicon Amazon.com Fraud EMail

I received this email in my junk mail box and suspected it was a fraud.
After checking the real Amazon.com site, I confirmed that it's just
another thief trying to steal personal information.

"Dear Amazon® member ,

records are out of date. That requires you to update your account
