Type of a scam Credit Cards

Message left on my answering machine reporting that Amazon had a charge on my credit card for an amount which I did not recognize. If I did recognize the charge I am instructed to just hang up and the item would be delivered, however, if I did not recognize the charge I was asked to call 4, 2, 4, 2, 5, 5, 5, 0, 8, 4.

I went through Amazon customer support and the a representative stated that it is a scam. Amazon does not call customers unless you go to Amazon's website and ask for them to call you. Someone is trying to get your personal information.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

Receive email supposedly from Amazon.com that a purchase was made that we did not do. They said I needed to go to the grocery store and get a 200.00 Google play card that would verify our location and then they could block all the un-authorized purchases and the card I used would be re-imbursed and when they said they now needed a 500.00 security card (Gift card) I got suspicious and called Amazon and found out it was a scam.

I received a call on my answering machine saying $249.99 had been charged to my visa account and I should call this number immediately: 1-802-783-2353. It was from Amazon and if I did not make this purchase I needed to call. I had made no such purchase but I didn't call. Does Amazon do this? I think its a scam.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I was contacted on my cell by +1(786)3053566 on 7.27.2020 at some time in the morning with an automated message saying "This is Amazon. There has been fraudulent activity regarding the $200 gift card you recently purchased." [I had not purchased an Amazon gift card - so I ignored it]. I was contacted again on the same day at 3:46PM by the same number and receievd the same automated message. I called back and spoke to a lady who did not give her name. She told me my Amazon account has been compromised and they will reverse the charge to my credit card. She told me the purchase was made in Houston, I live in California. I asked to send me an email recounting the report before we continue with anything. Again I asked for her name and she did not provide it and hung up. I called back repeatedly until someone answered also saying this was Amazon. I asked for his name and employee number and he hung up. I call back again several times and while I was doing so I received a call from another number, +1(202) 9324699. I continued to call both numbers until someone answered, who turned out to be the same man who I had spoken to before he then said this was "Domino's Pizza would I like to place an order?" I told him I am reporting these calls and he should be ashamed of himself and get a real job.

I have received one a month for the last 3 months. In each of them, I am thanked for shopping with them and that Amazon will send me a confirmation when my order ships. The estimated shipping date given in the email is only several days from when you receive the email. Each time it was for a computer and each was to be shipped to different addresses in other states. The amount ranged between $1,000 - $2,500. First time I panicked and called the number given. I was told I had to go to Walgreens at this time and call the guy back. He gave me his first name - I think it was Josh. He said that he would tell me then what card I had to get and then they could take the charge off of my account. When I got off the phone, I thought about it and then checked my Amazon account. There was no charge for a computer. I did not go to Walgreens and about an hour later I saw on caller ID it was him again. I did not answer. However, every month I am getting the same email but a different computer at a different price being sent to an address but no name on the address given.

Three random Amazon packages showed up to an old address of mine. I did not order any of the three items (one package contained a collapsible dog bowl and water bottle / the second package contained a support belt/ the third package contained hair clippers). I did not order any of these products nor was my credit card charged. Upon looking at my Amazon account there is no history of these orders either. From what I researched online the scam is called “brushing”. I have updated my password and security settings in my Amazon account and will call them.

I am reporting a phone call I received claiming to be with Amazon. Said my account will be charged $499. I asked for what. The caller said an i phone. I did not order an i phone or have an account with them. I continued to question the caller. I asked when was the charge. He said yesterday. When I told him I don't have an Amazon account he said it is on my bank account. He could not provide any account information. I did not provide any personal information. I could barley understand him. I could hear other people talking in the background saying the same thing. The phone number in my caller Id 833-911-2018. I called the number back. It is not a working phone number. I called my bank and reported the call. They will keep an eye on my account. I knew right away this was a scam.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

They called and said that my amazon account was hacked and someone in Texas using email ************************ bought $800 of amazon gift cards. I logged into my account and I saw no such transactions. I logged into my bank account and saw no such transactions. They had me download and app called team viewer quick support. Once it downloaded I clicked on it and it had an IP address. That’s when I said I am going to call my bank. I guess the theory behind it was they were going to screen share on my phone and steal my information. I was almost scammed but something in my gut said don’t let them in your phone

This is the second one I got from them. When you call and tell them you did not purchase the computer and you know of no one at the address it is being sent, you are told that the charge cannot be removed until you go to Walgreens and call the number and then he will make sure you are getting the right card. However, if you check your Amazon account, you find that there is no charge for a computer. The first one I received was June 11, but I must have deleted it as I cannot find it on my computer. It was also for a computer to be sent t someone but not the same person as this one and not the same amount. I think the phone number was also different.

BOT CALL- so far 3 different operators have called my 10 year old's phone, eventually transfers to a person- 1st call even after being told his age the lady laughed but proceeded to ask him about his nonexistant (wireless headphones amazon order) she vouldnt get anywhere & asked for a his parent and continued talking to me about his order (which he had repeatedly explained he didn’t have) she played Dumb as if brainstorming that perhaps the BOT-CALL that initially started this phone call came from a SPAM#, I Politely asked her to remove his PH# from her database, she said she couldn’t do that but could email me a form to complete and return to her ("if" I gave her my email address) told her the appropriate step for her to take is to email the address she had on file… she kept trying to fish for info, an address, an email an Amazon Account # etc… I Kindly told her to cut the Crap, sounds like she’s the SPAMMER and she hung up but she didn’t remove the # from their system as he’s received 2 more calls from the same #... we'll just block them from his phone. While not a very clever bunch they R Scheming & I'm sure they'll take your money if given enough info. PLZ BEWARE!
