Type of a scam Phishing

I have received three calls from a number claiming to be Amazon. Amazon will never call you unless you initiate it. Since the second call, I have been screening them. The first of the two calls claims that $49 is being ordered from my Amazon account. It wants me to call a customer representative. The second call repeats the same thing with the first one without mentioning $49.

I will be blocking this number so that a fourth call will not be made.

This number called me and said they work with Amazon and that one of my purchases of iPhone 11 wasn’t fulfilled. Which I know was a scam. They used the name Micheal George.

Received an order confirmation from Amazon which I had not placed. I called the number below and instead of correcting the issue, he tried to fear monger me. I asked him to cancel the transaction. He says there have been 5 other transactions for a Rolex watch, apple computer and such. In order to cancel, I must go to my local Amazon store for identity verification reasons. I hung up on him and called Amazon's customer number. They found no evidence of fraudulent on my account and I see no such activities on my account.

I was called about a fraudulent charge to my Amazon account and then was told my account was put on hold. Neither of these things were true. Pressing one took me to a representative (scammer) and I think it was a sourced call from India. The recording was an American voice im assuming to reassure people due to the stereotype of scam calls being carried out from India.

A woman called with Caller ID listed as "Unknown" introduced herself as being from Amazon and advised consumer that someone had tried to purchase an Xbox on her Amazon account, and that $149 will be deducted from her Visa account if she does not act fast. Consumer does not have a Visa or Amazon account.

Calling my underage daughter's phone stating her amazon account has been charged $700.00 and owes money, to talk to a representative press 1. She doesn't have an amazon account, she is in the 5th grade. When I called back stating no one on this phone has an amazon account, she immediately hung up. Indian accent and using local zipcode when calling. The number has been blocked several times and they continue calling from various numbers with local zipcode.

Type of a scam Tech Support

was contacted by a supposed amazon security it support and wanted access to all my banking records and drivers license #.

I gave control through a remote application and they access my 2 bank accounts. when the said it was to out money back and then asked for my drivers license # I felt it was a scam. I changed my banking passwords andremoved the application. Not sure if they were trying to stop a scam or do a scam but they claim it was an amazon purchase of 120.00 and they would put it back and all my account had been compromised. No money seems to been taken out but I am concerned they actually wre hacking my accounts. They had access to zelle.

Party left message that Amazon delivery was being delivered. If I did not order to call 1-843-755-4894 but number on my caller as 603-728-1180. I called the 843 number. He sounded foreign and I told him I did not order anything from Amazon. He said to go to my computer and fill in an online form (which I did not). I asked what the item was, he said a Bluetooth speaker and I told him I did not order. He told me again to go online and fill out form and I told him no and he hung up. I then dialed the 693 number and it was out of service. Earlier in the conversation when I asked more details about the account he could not give me any info.

Caller stated he was from Amazon and was calling to check a potentially fradulant charge. I answered the call in the first place because I had recently placed an order on Amazon. To resolve the issue, he told me that I needed to sign-on to my computer. I told him I was not going to do that, and asked him to explain the details to me -- reminded him that he called me. There were very loud noises and talking in the background, and some crackling on the line (and he had a strong accent), so I assume he may have been calling from abroad. I refused to go on line, and then asked him to provide me with the name of another number I could call him back at (and he gave me the same number he was calling from). Then, I asked him what city he was calling from, and he said "Seattle", and then I asked him to provide me with the corporate ID of the company or other identifying information so I could verify the legitimacy of the call. Once I asked that, he hung up.

Though I am very careful about such things, this scammer (and I do not know the ramifications yet) was a recorded voice, identifying herself as calling from Amazon.com to tell me a package I had ordered was delayed, and asked me to push one to get a customer service representative.

I did push one, which I immediately knew to be a mistake.

I understand that the purpose of the ScamPulse.com here is fundamentally to help protect others. But I was hoping, before anything came of my mistake, that there was some advice you could give to me that would help protect me from whatever this scam is about.

thank you.

Getting calls from “Amazon” saying that there’s been fraud on my account. But the prerecorded message is clearly not Amazon since there are grammatical errors.
