Trying very hard to not take out my frustrations on an unrelated support rep, I contacted both Amazon Retail and AWS expressing my disappointment and asking them to put a note on my account that it is at extremely high risk of being social engineering, and I will always be capable of logging in.
Amazon Retail said they would put a note, and have a specialist contact me (who never did) while AWS was dismissive of even a risk existing. So once again, I contact Amazon support to see what happened.
Eventually I had to basically tell him that it was “me” that contacted support and I wanted “my” transcript, which he provided.
Guess I should count my blessings they didn’t give the last digits of my credit card.
I sent the first email (using the form) on September the 1st.
I’m going to have to assume they got the last digits of my credit card, like they seem to be after.
