Kindle Personal document(s) from unapproved sender‏

Dear Customer,

The sender notification@wish.com tried to send document(s) to your Kindle. Any document, sent to you by notification@wish.com will not be delivered to your Kindle because the sender is not in your Kindle approved e-mail list.



Received this e-mail from Amazon after downloading the latest update coincidence or something more sinister?
Did anyone else receive this e-mail?

P.S. Never used wish.com seems to be a scam site.

You have to white list any senders. Did you request a book or document from wish.com?
Go to manage your content.
Click on settings.
Scroll down to approved personal document list.

I have received several such messages in the past, but it was pretty clear that it was likely a kindle user sending it to the wrong kindle address. As Cinisajoy mentions, your kindle will only receive documents from pre-approved senders. Otherwise, you would end up getting tons of junk mail, just like your email already does!

That's a retailer, and not a scam site.

Can't tell you why they would be sending a document to you, or anyone; maybe one of their employees sent something from their work email to their Kindle account, and mistyped?

Definitely a scam site, it’s a Chinese retailer pretending to be based in the US. I looked it up and found many customers had been ripped off by them.

They are an extremely large retailer. The fact that some people are unhappy with the service they're received from them does not make them a "scam site".

Many customers have numerous had fraudulent charges made to their credit cards and not received goods ordered.

So far as I know, it's legit:
http://the-digital-reader.com/2015/12/29/95678/

The service is poor, and I really don't think the model of shipping cheap junk direct from China is going to work out.

But I would not label it a scam.

Heck last month a seller on Amazon sent me the wrong item. But that doesn't make Amazon a scam site.

None of this has anything to do with the original topic. The site does not sell ebooks. The most likely explanation, as has already been suggested, is that one of the site's employees mis-typed an email address.
