Over the course of the past few weeks there has been an inundation of phishing emails from Barnes and Noble and Nook accounts. They emails are imploring users to change their passwords and even provide phone numbers. The emails are not from B&N, and instead trying to get access to your account for nefarious purposes.
Most major companies have a good fraud department that likes being forwarded emails that ask for user details. It helps track down who is doing it and if they are based in the United States, the operation is easily shut down. B&N does not have a fraud department, everything is customer service oriented.
