Type of a scam Phishing

I called 888-737-1679 on 3/5/2020 at 10:14 AM ct thinking i was calling Amazon customer service to report a unexplained charge on my debit charge from them. I was asked for my full name, last four digits of debit card involved and expiration date of that card. I provided that information and then was asked for the credit card numbers of my Amazon credit card. I never have had a amazon credit card and found it strange it would be needed, this representative said it was okay but that i then needed to go purchase a amazon gift card worth $25.00 USD from a nearby store and then call back to give them the numbers off that gift card. The representative said this was all necessary to obtain my location as a security precaution and that after i will be reimbursed my $25.00 USD and my case will be forwarded to the security department. I then hung up knowing this is a scam and i also plan on reporting this to Amazon.

Type of a scam Phishing

got a call from amazon customer service stating that someone ordered something with my account and they wanted to alert me and help get my money back. thanked them for checking this out because i had previously purchased something for wife on there and thought info had been compromised. told me to go to walmart or kroger to get playstation gift cards totaling 900. stated that if anyone asked tell them i was getting the gift cards for grand kids. purchased the gift cards and got outside to the car and they asked me to scratch off the back of the gift cards. gave him the info but found out a gift card was missing, thought it got lost in the wind because i did drop the bag and had to chase them down. was instructed to go back in and purchase another set of (9) gift cards. Did what was instructed and gave them the info off the back of those cards.had already spent 4 hours on the phone with them in hopes that doing this will help recover the lost money from amazon. gave them access to account info to help replace lost money. they sent 1,000 which was too much money. told them to take back the add'l money and only give back what was lost from account so i wouldn't be liable for extra money giving. the next day more money was missing from my account. called amazon customer service and while on the phone with them, the same guy called back using an amazon customer care number. clicked over and he was requesting more gift cards, stating the kroger server crashed and he will need to go back in and get another set of gift cards.

Lady said she was calling to see if I was interested in working from home with Amazon. I said yes because I had say the ads throughout the internet. She asked if I was familiar with Amazon and I said yes. Then she asked was I a Prime user and I said yes. She then just hung up on me. I pray she doesn't have any of my info by calling me because I didn't give her any info. I went and tried to call the number back but they continued to pick up and hang up. Be careful people she did sound professional.

I received a phone call from someone who left a message saying he was with Amazon and my account had been compromised, and I should not make any purchases or transactions until I talked to the Amazon technician at the help line. I did return the call to 917-677-5725.. When I returned the call, he answered "Amazon" and said someone had purchased a Samsung Galaxy 5 for $349 on my account, and was calling to see if I had made that purchase (which I did not make). He correctly told me the last purchase I had made before that on my Amazon account. He said he would delete the charge for the phone and I should not order anything else from Amazon until I allowed him to straighten the account out. He told me he would put a freeze on my Amazon account so no one else could make an unauthorized purchase on it. I asked him several questions to verify he was with Amazon, and he answered them correctly, but did laugh at me because I was being so careful. I don't see well, so told him I would wait until a family member was at my home so we could call and allow him to make the necessary changes to get my Amazon account back where I could use it. She was here today and we called the number..917-677-5725. He asked her to go to a website where HE COULD ACCESS my computer. He asked her to put in my name and gave her a security number to use. Fortunately, the security number was invalid, and she got suspicious and called Amazon at a number (from Amazon's website) I had used in the past for various reasons. AMAZON confirmed that 917-677-5725 was not a customer service number to their company, and also said Amazon would NEVER call a customer unless the customer had called them first to help resolve a problem. So she hung up the phone and the scammer never got access to my computer. Customer Service at Amazon (the real Amazon) said there was never a freeze on my account, and confirmed no unauthorized purchases had been made on it. I am thankful for this outcome, and thankful that I lost no money in this scammer's lies. The "real" Amazon agent said he would report that incident and phone number to Amazon's security department.

I got an email that said my Amazon account had been frozen I looked online for a phone number for customer service and called the number I found 877-774-0464. A man answered and I thought it was Amazon. He did a lot of fast talking and before I knew it, he had control of my computer. He said a lot, someone had changed my password and was trying to buy a TV from overseas,identity theft security alert, cyber crime, criminal activity, he wanted to know if I did banking online, etc.

He said I needed a web security engineer and that he could connect me to one. He said it was Way Logistics and would cost $150. and would be a one time fix. I told him my college age grandson would be home soon and I would talk to him. Could he give me a number for my grandson to call and talk to Ways Logistic and he said no, they only worked for Amazon. He scared me some more and pressured me a lot more to let him connect right then. I called Amazon with a number that I got from ScamPulse.com and they said this was not an Amazon telephone number. He had control of my computer. I did not give permission to control it, He has my email address.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

WAs called and told that my Amazon account had been charged 77 dollars and some cents for a recent transaction. Please call this number if this was not a transaction of yours. When you call back this number they want your name - when I gave my name they told me my Amazon account had been charged for a ITunes gift card. They wanted me to go to my Amazon account. They asked if I was at a computer or had an I-Phone or Android so I could go to my Amazon account. I told the rep then that I was not comfortable with this phone call and I would check my Amazon account myself. "We are trying to help you with this charge, miss" was the reply. I did tell them that I didn't appreciate his rudeness and hung up.

The next day I got another call from the same people. I called them back gave a false name and the same scene played out--- I did tell them that I was going to notify the ScamPulse.com and report the scam. I heard someone say - "Quick, hang up the phone"
