Total money lost $423
Type of a scam Tech Support

I tried to call amazon about a package marked delivered but was not delivered. The person on the phone told me I needed to verify my account but then had $423 from me. I stayed on the phone for hours trying to get my money back and they only sent $120 back. It sounds like the money I got back was also part of their scam against other people and my refund came from them. I have made a dispute with my bank. This was a very convincing scammer, I totally believed it was amazon

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received a phone call showing that Amazon was calling. I answered the phone and receivec a robocall stating there was a charge of $729.00 going to my Amazon account and to press 1 to talk to a representative, which I did. During this conversation the representative wanted information about me and wanted to open my account by using password ANYDESK, which would give them access to my account. I told the representative I was going to call Amazon directly to discuss this, I was in my account and found no suspicious activity

on my account. I informed the representative of this and she said they were holding the charge back and that is why it is not showing on my account. During this call I heard many people in the background talking on phones, almost making difficult to hear the representative. As I continued to tell her I was going to call Amazon directly she then gave me a number to reach Amazon, 262-479-5755. During this time my husband looked up this number and it was a number for Any Desk company, which is a phishing sight. If they had gotten into my Amazon account they would have had access to my entire computer system and all the information on my computer. I called Amazon directly and made a report to them, they gurantied my account was secure and advised me to make a report to the Federal Trade Commission, which I did. A few days later this company called me again but I did not pick up. Just want to report this phishing scam that is happening with accounts and bogus charges that are claimed to be on your accounts.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received a call earlier today from 440-426-0547 (Geauga Lake area) claiming to be with Amazon saying "someone in the Dayton area is trying to use my banking info for approx $1300 to purchase an iphone with my Amazon account". I told them there is no other user of my account. They never revealed any of my personal information details; they kept wanting me to verify the details which I would not. It started to feel this was a very strange call so I began to threaten I would call Amazon and let them know that the person was an imposter and could not use my information and I would sue Amazon for this. These scammers call every day, sometimes multiple times a day, with a different purchase that an anonymous person is trying to use my account with Amazon.

My second call of today was from 440-428-8633 which is a spoofed number from a business called K G Tool and I know of no reason to have that business call my phone. The business name actually showed up on my phone screen. When I answered they started another dialogue that someone was trying to use my Amazon account to make another electronic purchase of a high dollar amount. So far I have never listened long enough to have them tell me how I can pay them to stop this activity. I keep hanging up before they get to that part.

If you get any call from Amazon about anything regarding your account, always be certain you know where your credit or debit card is and that nobody else can use it. If you use it, keep track of what is charged and from where it was purchased. Also note when your purchase is received. This helps to protect yourself from the scammers activity. Never go buy a prepaid card or money card when told to do so by another person over the phone who just may be a scammer. This is not how a well-known business, a large company like Amazon, or a small business owner, will do business. Please contact your ScamPulse.com to report this activity: get names and phone numbers to call them back, never make a hasty commitment (tell them you have to talk to someone else before making this decision). Ask them for a way you can contact them in 24 hours so you have time to check out the details they provide you. Just because the business name is a real business does not mean they are a real representative of that business.

If you have fallen for any scam, report it to the local authorities, a police report could be helpful.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

Nearly every time I make a purchase on Amazon I will get a scam call about a week later asking me to confirm and authorize a very large purchase - usually for electronic equipment or a cell phone. The amounts are generally north of $850 and as high as $2,200. The automated call says if you do NOT authorize this charge to press 1. Well I got that call on Oct 11, 2021 !! And there is NO way I am pressing any button as I believe pressing ANY button will likely result in my authorization of the charge.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

Called to inform me that I had a fraudulent purchase on my account. Someone had tried to purchase a IPhone 11 on my account. Talked to a live person who wanted me to open my amazon app on my phone and asked what I was using, iphone or Samsung. I decided to end the conversation with person and investigated myself.

I opened my amazon account and chatted with agent and found no fraud on my account.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

The last two days I have received multiple phone calls on my cellphone. Each time a recorded message came on confirming a $400.00 (then $700.00) charge had been made on my Amazon account. Then I am told to wait while I am transferred to another number. Classical music is played (Chopin). Then I wait....but then I became afraid they are some how able to trace my real account to my phone or something so I hang up. I have not actually talked to anyone real yet. I have checked my Amazon account multiple times to make sure everything is ok and nothing has changed. So...not sure what they are trying to accomplish.

Type of a scam Phishing

Female scammer identifying herself as Ally called my mother and told her an iPhone had been ordered on her account for $399. She asked if my mother wanted to accept or cancel the order. My mother called me and gave me the phone number to call back. I called and asked for Ally and was given to a male scammer. I asked if his name was Ally and had he just spoken with my mother. He said yes and repeated what my mother was told. I said to cancel the order and he gave me a cancellation ID. He told me as soon as I was at my computer he would help me download and fill out the necessary form to cancel the order. I said I couldn't get to my computer until tonight. He said he would call back in the morning and immediately hung up.

Total money lost $3,600
Type of a scam Phishing

Person called and said they were from Amazon Prime and the new rate was 40.00 / month and had already been charged to my account and if I wanted to cancel it and get it refunded back I had to fill out a Amazon Prime Refund/Cancellation Form. But when you filled it out the person said that I had made a mistake and forgot the period so was refunded 4000 dollars and not 40. The person would loose his job if he could not get the money back into the account before the manager saw it. I checked my account and there was a deposit for 4000 but I did not catch that it had bee transfered from another account, and was my money. I had to go to grocery stores and but gift cards totaling 4000 dollars and take a picture of the numbers so they could recoup the funds. I did that for most of it and then stopped when I finally listened to my self but by that time I had already sent them 3600 dollars. If they call then hang up and block the number. Do not worry about hurting their feeling because they do not mind taking your money.
