Type of a scam Online Purchase

Received an email indicating an order for an HP laptop have been placed in Amazon prime. Double checked Amazon app to make sure no purchase was made. Then I noted on the PDF that it indicated if there were any questions to call the help desk the number was indicated for the help desk near the top of the email PDF attachment. They're subject line simply stated order update, not the usual Amazon prime order update, nor was any delivery address indicated in the PDF.

Type of a scam Phishing

Connected second TV to Amazon prime about month and a half ago. Then last week, we went from main TV up to second TV to finish watching a prime movie. I was prompt to register amazon prime TV gain, but would not process. Said I needed to call 866 674 8369. At this point I was asked to pay for prime services. I said I already have. They told me Amazon prime for 12.99 was only for fast shipping and special prices and we now need to pay for the prime TV. 69.99 for 3 yes or 79.99 for 5. They new what TV show I watch the night before and everything. So after selecting a three yr package they needed my credit card number. Stupid me gave it. They were able to change my password for my log on to Amazon. Not sure how they got that as well. I changed passwords with Amazon soon after this. Then today I was called saying they were updating the ID protection info asking to confirm address which I did not. They called from 877 5254389. Just called credit card company and canceled card. This company did processed my card for 69.99. Credit card is processing a dispute. Please help close them down.

They called and claimed to be and said that my Visa card would be charged $99.99 unless I call 701-997-2761. Another alleged Amazon caller on another day claimed the same amount owed and to call 206-717-4254 to cancel.

I called the real Amazon at 888-280-4331 and was told I owed nothing.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

In process of trying to get on Amazon Prime, received a code and site to contact for verification on tv screen...Amazon says it was probably because my smart tv either did not have or had a weak firewall...I called the number and was told to open my Amzon site. Very quickly I began to see the cursor moving and Western Union/ Colombia and Western Union/ Philippines appeared. They kept me on the line by telling me they needed to refund $69 since I was already an Amazon customer. The "agent" said his name was Steve Derrick; he said his "floor manager" was Kelvin. They got $297 through Western Union sent to Estevan Norena Leon in Colombia and it was picked up so Western Union couldn't do anything. There is another $456 that I am trying to account for. i have a meeting with my bank tomorrow afternoon and all information is under investigation by the local sheriff's dept (A ticket # has been assigned.) I have changed passwords on ******* ********* ** ***** *** ******. Tomorrow i will ask the bank for a new debit and Visa credit card just to be safe with new PINS. In the image area below i will add the timeline, etc., that I have given to the sheriff. The dollars listed below were in 3 activities printed on my bank statement in seconds -- $100, then $297 (Western Union in Colombia), and $456 (which we still can't figure out. They overdrew my checking account and left me -$90-some dollars. I am hoping that the bank will be able to give me answers tomorrow at my 1;30 PM meeting.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I recieved a call and the caller ID said Amazon. They said there has been an unusual purchase made from your amazon account and that on overseas country has purchased an 800 Iphone with your account. They insisted it was Amazon calling and all information was secure. I was half asleep at the time and was not thinking ahead except for someone using my info to purchase a phone, so I unfortunately proceeded to give them my two accounts information. They had said there was activity at a walmart and target already and they sent me emails of the transactions with a verification code I needed to repeat back to them so they could stop the account. Then they told me to go to the neareast Walmart and purchase a $500 Xbox card so they could catch the hacker. I called my wife and she said it was a scam. Just then it sunk in it that it was. They tried calling back about two hours later and I was able to save the number for you to report the number they called from: 267-845-9928

Type of a scam Online Purchase

This was a recording that said that they were calling about my Amazon Prime account and that someone had charged $423 to my Amazon Prime account and if it wasn't me then press 1 to talk to someone so they can get all my information so they can straighten out the problem

so I hung up because I don't have an Amazon Prime account.That's how I knew it was a lie but somebody may have an account and think this is real. Had I had a Prime account I would've probably believed this and they would've taken all I have.

Auto-Renewal Charge for Amazon Prime [when I already paid it ]

They asked me to press 1 if I wanted a refund. After pressing 1, person then told me if I wanted to cancel my Amzon Prime they'd send me refund of the $149 being charged to me. This is a higher amount than my Annual Auto-Renewal charge - and it is not due for another 3 months. I told them I wanted to keep my membership. Tried to call them back but no answer. Don't know if they'll try to charge my bank or credit card.
