Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Got a call (saying they were from Amazon) asking if I had purchased a $145 iTunes gift card through them; they left a message so I called back. I had my Visa account and iTunes account pulled up on my laptop before I called them back to make sure this was legit. I saw no unusual activity so figured this was a scam. They asked for my name. I then said I'm looking at my accounts and see nothing unusual; when did this transaction occur? They hung up right away. I couldn't even understand the person on the other end.

I received an email with logo and name from Constant Contact. However the email is using outlook.com They were advising me that my billing information needed verification or my order would be cancelled.

- I don't believe that Amazon notifies using constant Contact

- email didn't jive with Amazon emails

- I don't have an account with Amazon

- I didn't place any orders with Amazon either

I received an e-mail from someone claiming to be from Amazon stating I ordered some things that came to $6102.69. It said if I didn't order this to call this number 1-855-470-1534. I called to let them know I did not order this. They said I had to get a game stop Walmart card for $500.00 and stay on the phone until I got the card. I felt it was a scam. I told them my phone was dying and called FTC to confirm. They said it sounded like a scam. They did not receive any money!

Caller claimed to be Amazon and asked if she spent $77.99 recording gave number to call if not authorized girl stated they needed to fill out a refund request form, said I needed to lock card temporarily, so I agreed. She transferred me to someone who was foreign and I could not understand and he wanted a lot of info, including a card # and asked if I had another card that they could draw from, I said no and my screen show $971.75 was just charged from my bank. I asked what that was for and he said that it is to get Western Union to authorize a refund. He would not give me a direct number but he didn't give it and then said "It's quitting time, we will have wrap this up tomorrow, we will call you back tomorrow". I knew then it was not right and asked his name and he said "Marvin Edwards". I called credit card company but charge was over limit, then they issued a new card and cancelled that one

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received an EMail on 9/8/2019 with an Amazon logo informing me that I had purchased a laptop computer for approximately $1700. The message included a phone number and a statement that if I did not purchase the item I could call this number. I did call and the person answering stated that an Amazon credit card had been opened in my name and that I had purchased approximately $4700 in merchandise including the laptop. I informed him that we had not opened an Amazon credit card account nor purchased the items. He then attempted to sell protection for $470, which we declined. At this point we became suspicious and so informed him. Unfortunately, he did gain access to our computer and was able to erase the original EMail sent. We've contacted Amazon and their representative stated no items were ordered and that we would have to contact Chase to get information about a credit card. Chase wanted Social Security numbers which we declined to provide. Amazon seems unconcerned about damage to their reputation or the use of their logo. We will not order from them again.

Got a voice message saying that I need to call the number to confirm my order with Amazon for 97.99. The big problem is I have no account with them and when I called they wanted my information I told them “no” then they said they couldn’t give that information out without my information, I was then asked if I had a computer told them “no” and I was told “have a nice day” and hung up on

I called Amazon Prime to cancel my account with them, a guy name Jardon got on the phone to help me get my refund he claimed he could not get it back on the credit card and before I knew it , he got my Mac card number and had went in my bank account and took out two transactions, one though western union for 457.00 and another one for 250.00 when I seen what he was doing he put back 250.00, but the bank stopped him from going in my account anymore, then he wanted me to give him my credit card information, saying he would put the money back on my card. There are several of them Trevor Rabb, Sam Martin, Keven Bush, and a Andre Bush I seen all these names when they supposedly was trying to put my money back. They did this though my cell phone. They are called Market A Plus but they use Amazon. I seen part of a address when so I looked it up on the google map it gave a address of 247 Mint Street Edapalaiyam, Park Town Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600003 India. Their are several phone numbers 920 777 0362; 877-255-3608, 888-280 -4331. I hope this keeps anyone else from getting stick because I am hurting right now that was my bill money they took.

My name: this is Liz at Amazon! You are selected to pocket $100 prize for sharing your experience! Write YES for more info! :]

I removed my name, but this is the screenshot of the text message I received. I attempted to call the phone number the message came from, but does not exist! I’m not sure what/how/why I got this message or how she knew my name and phone number! Because I didn’t reply, I’m not sure what she would have asked for!

Left message that someone had made purchase on my amazon account of a gift card and that the address it was going to was different than the one on my account and order originated from New York which triggered a lock down of my account. They needed to send me a form to stop the purchase but needed to remotely access my computer.

Type of a scam Employment

I applied for an Amazon job on Indeed. I checked my email a few days later and notice an email from Amazon Inc. The position is for the Virtual Customer Service at Amazon. I'm given a selection of dates to conduct an interview through email. Never heard of this method before but thought nothing of it. The emailed interview arrived the next day, Memorial Day, and had two sections to complete, Section A and Section B. The questions did not ask for any personal information. I was only asked about different job situations relating to customer service questions. On the third day, I received another email explaining I was selected for the next round and to complete an assessment. The assessment would determine any value I would bring and also enlighten me about job duties. The third email also explained the requirements for webinar training. The requirements for the training included front and back copy of driver's license, how do you intend to receive pay, Postpaid carrier account information with cellphone companies (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint), and your physical address (No Physical Address). After receiving the third email, I thought nothing of it responded by email with a copy of driver's license, direct deposit information, and my address. I received a forth email on the same day. The forth email was strange and was requesting the name of my bank, the type of credit card I was using, and if I was able to go to the store at any moment in time to purchase anything with it. It was then, I finally realized this was a scam. I quickly contacted my bank and the placed an alert with all the credit agencies. Due to interacting with the scammed email, I will also conduct malware/virus scans on my personal computer. There were no links or attachments to click on within any of the sent emails.

Because I use gmail, all I notice was Amazon Inc. I reopened the email and took a detailed look at the email address and discovered it to be [email protected] I also took a closer look at the proposed web address, https:/_/www.amazon.com. The Underscore used between the two forward slashes is not a proper web address. I failed to examine the entire email properly. Was only thinking about supporting my family and getting a job offer. I sadly let my guard down. Had I took a closer look at those two things after receiving the first email. I would have had known it to be a scam. After applying for over 20 jobs in the Greater New Orleans area and getting turned down for almost all of them, I was in need of anything decent I could get my hands on quickly.

Voicemail state that Amazon looking for at-home workers that pays $27 an hour. Just need to go to their site Amazonresource.org for more information. I never went to site personally. I believe they try to get you to pay like other amazon scams
