Same here, f*cking annoying.
This wasn't a scam, it was AW themselves when trying to log in, said I wasn't verified - utter bollocks as I've been verified for 10+ years.
This has happened to me three times recently - first time was a struggle since I couldn't remember which email account I had used.
I thought about it though and reasoned that, since I've been left feedback, AW would have sent me an email to my registered account telling me that - I haven't got that many email accounts and found it on the second one I checked.
Back to AW, requested confirmation email and Bob became my Uncle, again.
