Type of a scam Online Purchase

Call to elderly individual. Automated call stated they were Amazon and purchase was denied. Press number 1 to receive more information. Person presssed the number and was connected to live person with Indian accent. He said that a charge for $1400 on Amazon was denied. It was for an iphone. The individual had a family member who recently within the previous couple of days had purchased an iphone, but not from Amazon. He got confused and said yes that an iphone was purchased and authorized the payment. Now realizes it was not Amazon. Call back number went to "magic jack" number that has not been assigned, of course.

On 11/25/2020 at 3:02pm, I received an automated voicemail stating a purchase had been made on my Visa card. The voicemail began halfway through a dollar amount to add confusion. I do not have a Visa card or Amazon account.

Audio transcript: "...And ___ cents on your Visa card. If you have made this purchase on Amazon.com and recognize it, then simply hang up and your order will be delivered to you. However, if you have not made any such transaction, you can call Amazon Support right away on 346-226-2139. Again the number is 346-226-2139 thank you."

Received email that a $5000.00 order from Amazon would be delivered on Dec 5 to an address in Delaware. I live in a different state and do not know anyone in Delaware. It seems someone applied for an Amazon CC in my name even though I already have an Amazon CC. I have notified law enforcement and Amazon for further action.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a call from someone impersonating Amazon stating there was a purchase on my account for $1,000.00 and asked if I wanted to cancel the payment. Of course my answer was yes as I knew it was a scam and wanted to see what sort of info they were trying to get out of me. The human then began to attempt to walk me through steps on my computer to remedy this fake situation. When confronted with the knowledge this was a scam and I would not be giving out any info, they hung up. I called Amazon to report the issue and they stated Amazon would NEVER contact someone in that manner. HA! Don't be fooled fellow humans. :)

Received numerous phone calls from different phone numbers claiming to be Amazon.com. They say they believe some one is using your account to make purchases. If you want to cancel these orders you must go online and fill out a questionnaire. when I told them I did not have a computer, they said to use a smart phone. When I said I did not have a smart phone, they hung up. Amazon confirmed there was no activity on my account and are aware of this phone scam.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I received an email from a scammer posing as Amazon. My name was mispelled in the email. The email promted me to call a toll free number, 1-888-718-2151 about my account. Since I have had an amazon prime account, I gave them a call. The scammers insisted that I had opened a $50K line of credit with Amazon that I had failed to pay. The scammer threatened me. They knew my address and my childrens' names. I contacted ScamPulse.com and confirmed that this is a scam. Very scary.

Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

I got an email from Amazon to confirm a purchase of a $1883.00 Apple laptop, and the order was placed by a customer in TX. If I didn’t authorize it then to call a phone number at the bottom of the email. I called the number and the rep. helped me cancel the order, but wanted to sell me cyber ware to keep it from happening again. He instructed me to get remote control of my computer and to upgrade my windows 7-10 for $350. I paid thru PayPal. I didn’t get a confirmation from Amazon about the cancellation, so I felt something was wrong. I called Amazon, and they never sent the email. Then I called PayPal about the scam for a refund. I was transferred to another ext. (424) to get the refund. PayPal denied my claim. I kept trying to speak with a person. The person I spoke to stated that he was going to help me by transfer money by Cash app, Coinbase, and Gpay to be able to see if he could move the refund into my account. He told me to transfer $2000 from Zelle to [email protected] to help me get my refund, then he would put it back. That never happened. By the next morning my banking account was below $25. I called the bank to freeze the account and told them why. I had to close my account to stop the scammers.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I was going to order a book from Amazon. When I submitted my ID something popped up that I had an account and someone had put something on my account on Amazon for a rolex watch for $5000. I called that phone number and Mike Butler ID: MB24289 is the guy on the phone he called another guy from "USAA" named Alex. Then Alex said that I was charged for a porno site and needed to take action and clear the account. He told me I needed to go to HEB and buy gift cards so I bought one Nike gift card for $500. He kept telling me to trust him. I went to walmart and bought two $500 gift cards. I read him the numbers off the gift cards and he told me once we were finished he would take care of my account and everything will be resolved. We hung up after hours on the phone and it didn't sit right with me. I called USAA and spoke to a representative named Alex. I let him know everything that happened and they made a report and let me know that I was scammed.

Scammers pretending to be Amazon calling me to say there is fraudulent activity on my Amazon account

Victim Location 98801
Type of a scam Online Purchase

Received call claiming to be Amazon. It was a recorded message saying an order was placed for $1499.00 from an IPhone 11. It looks suspicious and they have placed a hold on the order.

Press 1 to speak to them.

I pressed 1 and an Indian sounding man spoke. He was in a room with many other people. I heard another guy in the room telling another victim the same charge they told me.

I asked for a phone number to call them back and the guy gave me a partial number.

I hung up, checked my Amazon accounts and my bank transactions.

Nothing happened.
