Amazon Prime Scam


Full Member

Had a phone call today, a female recorded voice with an American accent claiming to be from Amazon Prime telling me my account would be debited shortly with £39, press 1 to speak to a manager. I don't owe them anything but I didn't press 1. The number called was 01591 553107.

I enquired with Amazon and they say the call dod not originate from them and in any case they do not make calls to customers to advise of upcoming charges.

No doubt, had I pressed 1 I would have been connected to a helpful manager who could assist me further once I has passed security checks by giving my full name, postcode, date of birth, bank account number and sort code, mother maiden name etc.

So if you do get a call like this out of the blue........ignore it.

....... and the phone rang today. Yes it was the Amazon Prime scam, didn’t bother to have any fun, just simply hung up.
So thanks landsm, forewarned is forearmed.
