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?
