Is a text from AWS a scam?

I recieved this text from AWS - no number -

 , someone made a log-in attempt from 7.4.5.35. If you did not do this, use 099835 to confirm your identity http://amn.red/12pslee 

 

I have no idea what this is for. Is it a scam? How do I stop it happening again? Thanks.

Hi, @mrsshocks,

 

Sound's like a scam so just ignore it!

 

If it happen's again then forward the message to 7726

If in any doubt just ignore and delete.

A quick google search shows that it is from Amazon Web Services. Are you signed up to that?

 

If so log in manually and just change your password

Thanks. I found this on Google too but was still a little unsure of the link they had sent. I changed my Amazon account password right away as a precaution. I still think it is a scam text though.
