I can’t see how this wasn’t an accident. You really think your old boss would knowingly send his credit card information directly to a person he recently fired? Why would he trust you to not use his credit card for stuff? Even if he did have to put in the address, why should that be a red flag? If he thinks he’s using a company account that was set up after you left he’d still need to put that info in. As someone who doesn’t have or use an amazon account, I wouldn’t have been alarmed if I was ordering something and it asked for my address – I certainly wouldn’t think “omg I must be logged into the wrong account” because I don’t know how the accounts actually work.

Absolutely delete the order! That is absurd.

Not okay!  I’d cancel the order and report it to Amazon.  I’d change all your passwords and get a new credit card with a new number to replace the one that was linked to the account–just in case.  Whether or not you contact them is dependant on your good will.

MrsMeowton :  I’m confused about how they were even able to log in to your account 6+ months after you left the company…?

MrsMeowton :  Whatever cards you had linked to your account I would cancel.  I would also feel icky about someone accessing my personal information.
