Thread Name: BS: Thank goodness for Amazon!!
Subject: RE: BS: Thank goodness for Amazon!!
Not Amazon's fault, but for the third time I got a call (this morning, 8am) which is the Amazon Prime scam. The recorded message 'informs' you that the wrong amount for Amazon Prime has been deducted from your bank. "Press 1 to speak to an adviser". If one does, bank details are requested 'to refund the amount'. Of course, they help themselves to your bank account. I have never had Amazon Prime, so I always just replace the receiver.
Pity it's a recorded message, as I'd like to vent my anger at the scammer.
Amazon suggest merely that one informs the relevant Fraud Department of the Police etc. I don't suppose to be fair there is much Amazon themselves can do.
