Amazon - is this a scam?

I have just received three separate text messages purporting to be from Amazon. They each provide a 6 number 'OTP' code (whatever that is) and instruct me not to share it with anyone and to keep the number confidential. I haven't ordered anything though...can anyone advise me whether it's a scam of some sort? the number on each text message are different. Thanks in advance. smile

Sounds like someone is trying to log in/hack your account. I would contact them

This is from the Amazon website explaining about a otp www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?tag=mumsnetforu03-21&nodeId=202122140
If you haven't ordered anything it must be that the buyer entered your phone number by mistake?
