Type of a scam Phishing

I called the number for customer service as I knew this was a false claim. The email is all wrong for amazon orders and I checked my actual amazon account. When I called the number for “customer service” included in the email, the line was very choppy. The individual stated a name and said I was calling Amazon. I questioned him about the automated voice that directs me to a particular department. He said he was product review department. I said the number was for customer service so please transfer me. He told me to google the number. I said if you’re with Amazon you can transfer me. He stated that due to the pandemic he could not transfer me. I ended the conversation there

Total money lost $2,000
Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received an email on 7/3/2020 I was that I had purchased a (77 inch TV & XBox). Order # 114-5557116-8488305. $4898.52 charged for invoice #897876. The email said if I didn’t place the order, I should call 1.855.959.3869 (fraud team). I called and a man said I was a victim of identity theft and I needed to “block” future purchases by purchasing 3 credit cards and sending him the access codes for all (4) $500 credit cards. He indicated the money wound be returned within 5 minutes and this would “BLOCK” future purchases. I NEVER received my money back. I decided to call AMAZON representative and they informed me that they would investigate because they had NO record of a purchase or invoice for a TV & XBOX.

Received email from Amazon.com (the n in the word amazon was odd looking)

Email shown below. Too many red flags in this email (typos, asking for credit card info, old email account, no recent orders). I went directly to my Amazon account and no issues were listed.

An email was received that was believed to be from Amazon. The email indicated a 77 Inch Smart TV and Xbox one and the second order was a protection plan service agreement. Nothing was ordered. When number was called they requested Credit Card.

Type of a scam Phishing

I have received 2 emails indicating my amazon prime membership is going to expire and will be permanently locked unless I change the card on file. Immediate action is required in all caps. Now I know this is fake for 2 reasons. One I do not have amazon prime. And secondly when we order through amazon we do so under my husband’s account. Therefore there should be no reason for amazon to have my email. I did contact amazon via their online chat help to inform them when this happened the first time. I wanted to take further action as I have received the second email today. I know many people do have amazon prime especially during this pandemic and do want innocent people to be taken advantage of.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received an email from what looked like a legitimate purchase from Amazon saying my purchase would be shipped. The ship to address was to Austin, Texas and the purchase was for a TV in the amount of $3998.00. I knew I had not made that purchase so I called the phone number stated on email. (855-965-4096). I was told that my Amazon account had been hacked and I needed to purchase an Amazon security card at nearest store. The amount of the card purchase would automatically be returned to the credit card after purchase. He said he would stay on the line while I went to store to be sure I purchased the correct card. I then looked up (through Google) the actual Amazon phone number, and was told it was a scam and that purchase had not been made on my Amazon account. The number the scammer was calling from was 855-948-3525.

I received a message from “AmazonRewards” To take a survey and I will get $100 worth of inventory. I then checked the website and found it to be blank. Then I got another text message asking that William needs to check details regarding a shipment; (there is NO William living at my home!). A shipment number was given and a website to go to which I’m not. I will attach all the information I have. This is about the 4th time this is happened to me and I’m done.

Type of a scam Tech Support

Person called my home phone stating they were from Amazon Security and there was a suspicious charge for a $200 Amazon Gift card posted to my account. He then proceeded to try to have me download on my cell phone an app from google play store called Teamviewer Quicksupport. I said I'd just logon to my Amazon account myself or call Amazon directly, he said you don't have to I'm from Amazon, I said yeah sure and hung up. I logged onto Amazon, there was nothing unusual and changed my password.

Type of a scam Phishing

Email was sent to my husband’s email account as a Blind Copy. Original addressee was [email protected] The header read exactly like this (note capitalization, grammatical, and punctuation errors):

Fw: [Action Required] Dear Amazon Prime Member,,, Your Amazon Prime Membership Has Been Suspended - [ Final noticed!!] : Please Your Prime Membership update payment card!!, on Date Monday, May 25, 2020 ON, US - (EDT) - 000,111 (GMT+5)

Underneath the bottom of what appears to be a pasted photo-copied image of an actual letter from Amazon, the message in the first paragrah is written twice.

At the very bottom of the page, it indicates that a jpeg image was used.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

The scammer called my husbands father 3 different times. They claimed they were calling on behalf of Amazon about an iphone that was charged onto my Amazon account. The scammer said it was charged by my husband. They gave his name and the charge was for $700 and something dollars. My husband passed away recently and our account has a 0 balance. They told my father in-law if the charge is false she can connect him with her manager and he can handle stopping the charge. My father in-law said they had an Asian accent. He told them he knew this was a phishing scam.
