Is the text message that I received from AWS?

I received a text message (SMS) asking me to verify something about my Amazon account. Is this message from AWS or Amazon?
AWS contacts you through SMS if you request SMS verification when creating a new AWS account.
If you receive an SMS message that you didn't request from a sender that claims to be from AWS:
- Don't respond to the message.
- Don't open any links in the message.
- Report the sender to Amazon by following the instructions at Report suspicious emails, phone calls, text messages or webpages.
