Thank you, that is very helpful. I'll be on guard against pitches to buy from Amazon's competitors.[Incipient-Paranoia-Department] But of course, there is always the chance that more than my email address was stolen, so I'll have to change the password as well, both at Amazon and at gmail. Since my purchase history and/or emails might be used to attempt identity theft, I'll have to tighten up security in general.
