Type of a scam Phishing

I think this is a phishing scam, but could be online purchase. Was contacted by a robo-service from Racine, WI, saying that it was from Amazon and it was calling about a recent purchase of an IPhone (or IPad, I can't remember) for $900+. It then said to press 1 if I hadn't made that purchase. Pressed one and was connected to someone who asked for my name and zip code so they could 'look it up'. By then, I had been looking at my Amazon account and saw nothing weird. Googled and saw that this exact thing is a scammer. Hung up on them and came here to report it. On the questions below, I don't know if I have actually had my identity stolen or money stolen, yet. Since I hung up on them, I don't know what they were ultimately after. Hopefully will never need to find out...

Called back multiple times, was finally answered fourth time. When I asked about the legitimacy of the charge and the questionable name, was immediately verbally accosted with a slew of vulgarities and question of my employement, I obliged and said “only business I have is figuring you out.”

Phone number included. I can be reached at ********** or at ***************************

He called my cell phone and said he was Alex from Amazon Customer Service. Asked if I was trying to buy an Iphone for $990. Wanted to know if anyone else would be buying it. He said the purchase was coming from Alaska. He wanted me to sign into my Amazon account through my phone and I said I wasn't going to do that on my phone. He told me to open it through the computer. I told him I was at work. I did sign on to the computer and I saw there was a security area. He said "don't select that" open a new tab and enter anydesk.com He gave me his ID # DC9874 and S19 was another one of his numbers. He offered for me to speak to his Supervisor to which I said so I can speak to another scammer. I alerted my boss who said he is not from Amazon. I immediately changed my password on Amazon. This did shake me a bit.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I've recently received several emails from an alleged "Billing-Team" for amazon informing me that an order has been dispatched and is on the way, however I NEVER ORDERED ANYTHING from amazon in the amount listed- $1799.00/ASUS ROG Strix (2021) Gaming Laptop! I immediately contacted the REAL Business ( Amazon) and they confirmed that this was most definitely not anything that they had record or nor showing in their systems. This is a SCAM attempting to collect money from random people or has illegally or has illegally gained access to personal emails.

Received call from Amazon saying that $1299.00 was taken out my Amazon Account. And I received a text that $999.00 was charged to my Amazon Account. I did not speak with them. I called my bank and the charges had not gone through. Seems the Amazon Imposter had wanted me to call them. I did not call them. Received text from 505-720-9180 and called from 866-312-7655.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I Google searched Amazon customer service number and this is the site I clicked on. Called one number and spoke with someone that called me back from the number I have listed in report. I was looking for credit for an Amazon purchase I made that had a price difference. I was told by this individual that I needed to establish a credit and needed to purchase prepaid gift cards to get my money back. After several attempts I was informed that the cards I purchased were not active and had to buy more cards. This person was very convincing and threatening to me I didn't realize that I was being scammed until it was too far and one out of my hands. I am so distraught from this encounter and I hope something can be done to help me and others from this happening again.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

We received an email from "AMAZON" that said we owe thousands of dollars for " "computer hacking equipment". They spoke in thick foreign accents and incited my husband to anger when they referred him to a bogus customer care sight that would only take the "so-called" charge off if he got a gift card. My husband thought I bought something erroneously and yelled at me and made me talk to them. I was yelled at by them and was told to "get the [censored]in card!" I carefully explained to my husband I would not and why. My husband slowly realized that I was right. Its a scam!

This particular company has been emailing my elderly in-laws my elderly dad and us stating that they are Amazon which they are not. Email says we ordered something expensive to cancel call this particular number within 24 hours I'm receiving the email. Then you call the number then they try to fish information out of you that they should already have if it was truly Amazon fortunately somebody was there to handle the situation before both my in-laws and my father gave out any personal information.

Type of a scam Phishing

On Jan 10, 2022 at 2.19 pm I received a call from 540-235-6889 saying that they were from Amzon customer service team, and they have noticed an iPhone purchase on my Amazon account worth $1400. My card associated with the account was charged. When I said I couldn’t see any such transaction, they said that the bad actors are probably masking that is making it unable to see this. For them to securely submit the claim and refund me the money, they would need to send it over via a secure connection, for which I need to download a software. They provided me with the link and I followed the steps. The asked me to fill in a Google doc form with my name, address, last 4 digits of the card and the amount $1400. They asked me to hit submit, and when I did, they asked me to read out the confirmation. The confirmation showed that I will be refunded $14,000. They said I may have made an error, which I didn’t, but they insisted it was on my part, and the simple solution was that they would let me keep the $1400, but I would have to refund the rest. By this time, they provided me an option to talk with the supervisor, Peter. This Peter send me the picture of his Amazon job ID card, which had amazon prime logo on top, from the number 501-594-2514. Peter then asked me to log into my card account, to check that indeed they have transferred the money and I could see the amount being credited. This Peter was on the call with me the entire time.

Now Peter says that Amazon needs the money back, and it has to be B-2-B (between two business units) and I can’t possibly pay them personal, since that would be a violation of the tax agreements. The way I can do this would be to purchase gift cards - Amazon, GooglePlay, Apple, Target, Sephora, Nordstrom or vanilla visa card - either the same kinds or a combination of these, $500 on each to make up for the $12,600. I said I don’t have that much amount of purchasing limit, and he said it would be fine if we could get half of that, to save me from any trouble. I need to take my card and my driving license.

I went to Stop&Shop, Target, ShopRite and CVS to purchased 3 Target, 1 Amazon, 2 Nordstrom, 1 Sephora and 3 vanilla visa cards, each worth $500. After this, my credit card company have frozen my account (thankfully), and I told Peter that I can’t purchase anything anymore. They said they would call back again the next day (Jan 11, 2022), and they are disconnecting for today. Throughout the call Peter kept on saying that the call is being recorded and not to put him on mute, since that would affect his ratings with his superiors. He also said he appreciated the effort that I was making and would try to compensate me from his own salary. I was frustrated by this time, and I disconnected the call.

I started getting a bad feeling about this a couple of hours later, and did look up on Google to see if this was a scam, and realized I was scammed.

I received a real-looking email from Amazon.com (Receipt Confirmation to blackerbyjj, bcc: me)

indicating purchase of a $2,000 TV. While trying to figure out the purchase and cooperating with the "Amazon representative," I finally decided the caller wanted credit card information. Already having the last four digits of my credit card, she needed the expiration date. Although I ended the call, three hours later the scammer sent another email that appeared more authentic than the first. Since the incidents, I have reported the scam to Amazon and cancelled that credit card number.

At first, I had not noticed the sender's info:

"Receipt Confirmation

11:18 AM (5 hours ago)

to blackerbyjj, bcc: me"

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I just received a call on my home phone saying they were with Amazon. I had an outstanding bill of $961. This is upsetting. I just got out of the hospital. I don't buy anything from Amazon. I don't even know Amazon. I do not have the phone number that called. I could not tell if it was a live person or a recording. Caller wanted me to do something. I said no. I said I am calling the Better Business Bureau and hung up. I assume this is a scam. I thought it was best I hang up.

Sent me a email. When I opened it said it was a invoice for a Amazon purchase.Had a name that wasn’t mine. At the main bottom of the invoice had a phone number to call if I didn’t not purchase the IPhone 13 Max. Call the number to get a refund. I called and them there wasn’t a purchase on my account for $999.00 told me it wouldn’t show up for 24 hrs and that’s why I need to cancel it right away. Told me to go the App Store on my iPhone and type in deskscam. I told them I wasn’t doing that cause it would give them access to everything on my phone. Said she was going to to call ScamPulse.com to make sure it was safe. Well needless to say they hung up on me. Be careful of what they want you to do.
