Type of a scam Identity Theft

Started on June 26,2020. I called Amazon about charges on my account in the amount of $540. Didn't realize a scammer picked up under the real amazon number. Ricky Bell was the name used. He said he would take care of this. He rung up and called me back, not realizing it was from a different number also I received a text saying landline the number was 337-632-7779. He explained that he was going to delete all the charges and credit me back. He gave me the accounts he had, which was my banking account. He asked if I have the app on my phone, which I did, he told me to click on it and I would see all the charges including a transaction that was showing up the same day June 26. So I believed he was telling the truth. Than I saw a red symbol come into my phone than I saw something moving, than I realized he had taken control of my phone. I ask him what he was doing, than I received an email on my phone from Western Union. By than he had pulled all my contacts files and information from my device. The email was a western union transfer from me going to a Yina Viviana Acros Jimenez, Country Colombia expected Foreign Country payout location was Colombia. Now, I've been tracked even up to today. I also found out that someone recently created an account under my Cox account, which I had no idea. So, now I realized how they was tracking me through Cox.com. They been controlling my internet, Wifi, blue tooth, and phones through Cox.com. Everything was in my phone, including my social security number, passwords etc. This has been so stressful. I did a report to the local police dept, Fbi, an d Federal Trade Comm. With everything that's going on, its hard to reach anyone. They have been spoofing my number. Not able to get calls from people in my contact or they redirecting the calls.

Received email stating that my order had been shipped. It listed a tracking editor and track your package in email. I did not click on either. Said Apple Mac was shipped to *** ******* ** ******** ** 41721. Further down in email it stated "In case you have not made this transaction call immediately at 1-844-1359." "In case you have not placed this order you might be a victim of hacking or ID theft. Call our microsoft support partners immediately at 1-844-1359" I called and Aaron Williams answered, foreign accent, and said he could help me but I need to follow his instructions on my computer to correct the problem. I kept asking what was issued to order and he would not tell me cause of privacy and did not know if I was the right person calling. Since I could not get a straight answer I hung up and and did not take any action with him on the phone.

Read the great article on CBC:

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/brushing-scam-alberta-amazon-mystery-pack... />
Where it talked about brushing, and that are no registered cases in Southern Alberta. Sadly I was a target for this type of scam a couple of times: I have been sent 2 packages, at different times (One, a set of speakers, ad the second, some Bluetooth earplugs).

I contacted both times amazon (via their website/my account), and explained the situation, and no matter how clearly I explained it (e.g. mentioned it by name "the brushing Scam" ), they could not figure out.

I received email notification from my work place that two Amazon packages have arrived for me. I never ordered anything from Amazon to be delivered at my workplace. When i picked up the packages, they had no senders information on it. In one package was Mini handheld personal portable fan with flexible tripod fix worth $25.9 plus $7.47 taxes with a total of $31.44. Another package had a USB c to Ethernet Adaptor worth $14.99 plus $7.03 taxes coming to a total of $22.02. I checked my bank account and no money was deducted. But i never ordered these items of my amazon account.

I woke up to 4 email confirmations from Amazon for 4 chairs worth $200 each that I did not place. I went on my account and wasn't able to see the orders (I later learned that the orders were archived so that they could not be easily found). I contacted Amazon immediately to have the orders cancelled (they could see the orders on their end). The orders were getting shipped to my home address, and my credit card was used (both saved on my Amazon account). I recently heard on CBC Eye Opener that this is called a brushing scam. Companies do this so that you are a verified purchaser for their product, so that they can leave really good reviews for their product to help their business, even though the actual product was getting shipped to my address. I no longer store my shipping address or credit card information on Amazon. I changed my credit card number and my Amazon account password.

I received a package addressed from amazon. When I opened the package the items inside were not anything I had ordered. I called amazon and gave them the tracking number off the package. They said they had no information on that tracking number. They told me I could keep the items inside or throw them away. I had no idea this scam was going on until today.
