You have probably found your information on a hacked website for sale
Why does Amazon say my password is incorrect?
If you are not signed in from another PC and the “Incorrect Amazon password” message appears on the Amazon login page, Amazon has deactivated or blocked your account. Amazon hasn’t accidentally blocked your account, but that’s because a suspicious activity has been tracked from your account
