I received a message from Amazon stating I was charged $399.00 for an Iphone and they wanted to verify the purchase and to verify my address. They wanted me to call back at 1-682-816-0659. I called them back and they wanted my home address. They said the phone would be sent to some place in California. They then asked for my credit card number.

Received a fake order confirmation supposedly from Amazon.com. They have a phone number to contact to change or cancel order. ( 1-267-405-9052) I called order and when the guy answered, he did not immediately say Amazon, he was hispanic and hard to understand. Gave him the order # provided on invoice (#PZY-2974720-5575126), then thought about it and told him I would call right back. I googled Amazon customer service phone # and called to check. She told me it was not their invoice. And that was it. Thank God I checked or it could have been real bad. The shipping address is Lansing Street, Renton, WA 98055 for Apple Black iPad Pro 12.9 inch for $1,099.00 plus tax of $54.95 for a total of $1,153.95.

I received a phone call that showed as from "Danceography" from my area code. When I answered a woman's voice claiming to be from Amazon claimed that there was a possible fraudulent order for $120 on my account from an unknown IP address in another state. If this order wasn't from me to push 1 to speak to someone in Amazon's fraudulent order dept. I pushed 1 and a male voice with an India type accent answered asking how he could help me. I responded "You tell me, apparently there's a fraudulent order on my acct" . He then asked when I last ordered from Amazon, at the same time i went to my Amazon acct. on line to check my orders as I have made several purchases this past month. There was no unknown activity on my acct so I decided that this was probably a scam phone call and hung up on it.

I immediately went to the ScamPulse.com site and looked up Amazon scams and there were several, all similar but different enough in nature that I thought I should add this to the list.

Scammer called and said they were from AMAZON and were reporting a charge of 499.00 on my VISA card and to please call back if this transaction was false. I have received quite a few of these calls lately and same thing but different amounts. This was the first time they mentioned a specific credit card. Once you call back they will know you have a VISA card and they go from there.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I got a phone call stating they were from Amazon. They said that someone had hacked my Amazon account and ordered a iPhone 11 for $750. They had me do a lot of tests with my Amazon account. They wanted me to use a debit card.

So I gave them too much information before I realized they were going to far.

They ended up purchasing google play on my Amazon account. They mirrored my phone. And they also saw my bank account and how much was in there.

I’m 67 and I won’t get scammed again. I trusted these people. I called the real Amazon people and they told me it was a scam for sure.

Every week our landline has been receiving calls from men with thick middle-eastern accents saying something was charged to my Amazon acct. This time I stayed on the line and they told me Betty Davis from Chicago used my acct to order a $399 laptop. I was transferred to a "manager" who said he would stay on the line while I drove to Walgreen's to buy 5 gift cards, assuring me that I would be repaid and my account would be protected for the next 10 years. I refused to give him my cell number and he actually gave me his to use when I "got to the parking lot" to get further instructions.

Not sure how often they switch numbers but found that part interesting. I am assuming they were going off a record of who had our phone number as he named the 3 people who are on it. Scares me to think that someone would follow through on this. My only hope is that someone working at the store the scammer sends them to would question the buyer.

I have received nine calls today from different number with the same beginning exchange. They all say “this is Molly from Amazon and your account was charged $649 from Dayton, Ohio.”

Clearly a scam. I’ve reached a foreign call center where they also play along with the scam. They asked me to sign in to my Amazon account and I refused, at which point they hung up.

I received an email from someone saying it was from Amazon. I knew right off that it was a scam because the Order # wasn't Amazon

order numbers. I have had an account with Amazon since 2002. The one I got today was similar to the one I got last month.

The one I got last month said I had ordered a TV for $5,599.49 and if this was a mistake to call a number. Also that I had to sign for the TV.

I saved it but can't find it or I may have deleted it by mistake. But it was from the same person only thing the total was for the entire amount without the discount as in this email.

This started with a call regarding an order. When I called the number, person on the other end proceeded to tell me of a package and what I need to verify. I advised had not authorized an order and would not be providing any pertinent information. I received an email with order information and Amazon attached. I verified my accounts were in good standing and obtain an email from Amazon to send the suspicious email received. There was no address of where the business however, I received an order confirmation # 75884582159 with confirmation delivery of tomorrow to Ronn Anderson, A-84 Walls Ave, Wilmington, DE 95852..shipping by ATS #22458156325478 --I knew it was a scammed as I have had some classes on how o detect fraud and scams.

This number called me and a robotic voice claimed there was a $720 purchase on my Amazon account from Dayton, Ohio (I don’t live in Ohio). I pressed “1” to speak to someone, and then heard a repetitive recording that said, “ple[censored]d to speak to your Amazon representative.” I hung up before someone picked up. When I logged in to my Amazon account to double check, there were no new purchases that may bestia description.
