Type of a scam Charity

I was told someone purchased items on Amazon that were fraud. I was told I needed to verify myself by going to an amazon store. I dont have one, they wanted me to drive all over getting gift cards to verify who I am. I fell for it and gave them close to $3000. I verified with Amazon and they didnt have any record of it.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received an email regarding a package being shipped with a shipping ID. The Mac book Air - $899.99 was being sent to Robert Briseno of San Antonio, TX. I did not know this person or make any order. So I called the phone number and said I did not order anything and how do I know this is not a scam. I kept mentioning about this being a scam and the person hung up. I called my bank and checked on both bank account and credit card account and all was fine. I printed the email and deleted it from my account. I have not received another email regarding this matter.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received a message on my landline warning me that my Amazon account had been fraudulently used. They said I needed to contact them in order to prevent charges being made to my account. I called the number (above); to a very busy call center and was prompted to download the Teamviewer app. I was unable to properly process a complaint directly through Teamviewers website; they only seem to want to assist the paying clients, which are the scammers in this case and probably many more! I can access a thread that was saved that may even help identify the scammers that were able to claim to be "Amazon wants to access your info" prompting me to "allow" them. Had they used a less legit name, I would not have! Amazon claimed this type of thing happens a lot, but did nothing to try and identify the scammers.

The scammers knew the last four digits of two of my credit cards but tried to use Teamviewers to watch me enter my bank account number into my apple wallet! They disconnected our session when I stalled to do some fact checking via my laptop.

They told me to go to Dollar General or Save-A-Lot and buy gift cards and read them off to the guy on the phone. Apparently my account had been breached and I owed $500 to the account. I bought a $300 gift card and a $200 gift card and read them. Alex *** was the person I spoke with.

Type of a scam Tech Support

Someone reportedly from Amazon called to verify an order placed in Pennsylvania for an i-phone 11. When I said that nobody from here placed the order, they said they would cancel it and somebody must have gotten my Amazon card info. They then offered to help "protect" my Amazon account so that only I could use it. To do this they requested that I go to my computer and they would walk me through the process. Obviously they were trying to access my computer. Told them that I didn't have time for this right now so they offered to call back another day. I then called the number they had given me and got a very generic "leave a message" with no mention of Amazon.

Phone call inquiry of asking if I attempted to buy a $700 IPhone on my Amazon acct. When I stated "No", they said the purchase had been blocked because someone was using my IP address in another state to log into my Amazon acct. They said that they needed to fix the problem, and asked if I was near my computer. Wanted me to log on, and they could fix it. I stated that it wasn't convenient for me right now and I requested a return phone call in a couple hours. In the meantime, I call Amazon, they said they saw no attempt to buy an IPhone, and there was no reference of any phone calls to me. They suggested that I change my password. A couple hours later, get another phone call, directly mentioning about someone using my IP address to make a purchase, no mention of Amazon or IPhone this time. I mention that I had several IP's and inquired to which one was being used. They wouldn't reply, but wanted me to log into my computer. Phone call ended.

I received an email that seemed to be an Amazon.com message saying an order had been shipped. I made no such order and it was supposedly shipped to someone in another state that I didn’t know. A phone # was included to call if I didn’t agree with the message. I called the number and the person on the other end claimed to be an Amazon tech who could check into this. They wanted gift cards to do this. They said The charged for the gift cards for this service would be refunded. I purchased a few of these gift cards and submitted them, bet each time they wanted me to buy more of them. I don’t know if they plan to refund it or not. I have since checked my Amazon account and found no item had been purchased for the person in question per the email I had received that triggered this.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

Asked if I bought an I phone on Amazon. Press 2 if did not. Immediately got a foreign person who said purchase was made in Indiana. But would credit my account for the total. Verified name and address. I asked which account they were going to credit. She tried to put me off by saying financial manager would handle it. I asked again and she hung up. Guess I called her bluff.
