My Facebook feed was inundated yesterday with friends posting screenshots of an email they had received from Amazon. They were all in a panic because it was definitely not something they should have been getting.

The surprise email read, "Hello Amazon Customer, Someone great recently purchased a gift from your baby registry!”. Those who received the email that were not expecting a baby were, as you can imagine, surprised and a little confused. Especially the men who received the email!

Obviously, the email sent a lot of people into a panic and created a huge fear of a possible scam or phishing situation.

The good news is, Amazon made a statement that would ease a lot of people's minds.

We are notifying affected customers. A technical glitch caused us to inadvertently send a gift alert email earlier today. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. - Amazon Spokesperson

So, if you received the email, it seems there is no need to worry! Whew!
