Parents had set up amazon with now defunct @vf email address, so their digital assets are currently lost.

I assume this is/was a common problem.

Is there an advice?

I wonder what happens if you walk through the Amazon steps to recover your password. Dooo do doo, let's try it!!

 

 

 

"Has your email or mobile number changed?

 

 

 


 

 


 

Hmmm I wonder what happens if I click that link.  Let's push the boat out and try moving our mouse over.  Now I apply some pressure to the mouse button and woah woah a new webpage is loading fek what does it say?

 


 

"Did You Know?

Well fsck me would you look at that.
 
I DO NOT WANT TO SOUND BONKERS but I wonder, just wonder, what would happen if I called +1-206-922-0880 on a telephonical device?
 
I will leave that as a thought exercise to the reader.
