It is possible that the "reply address" embedded in the email leads to some scammer and by replying you provide info that will let them steal your account.
I agree with kacir. It does sound potentially fishy. Contact customer services at Amazon and get confirmation from them as to what is going on. And if someone has got your banking info. contact your bank so they can help guard your account against someone helping themselves to it. They will probably direct you to a number to call that will have your present card cancelled and a new card shipped out to you if your bank account has been compromised. So for 7 days you won't have a bank card but can write checks or withdraw funds as needed. The real fun will be getting everything switched over to the new card if you have accounts with other vendors besides Amazon like a monthly charge for some online service or something.
