Amazon Prime subscription scam call renewal to watch out for. #AmazonPrime #Fraud #Scam

This morning we had two calls from the same guy who claimed to be FRANK MURPHY from Amazon PRIME services and saying our Amazon Subscription should be renewed at a cost of €79.99 These calls are automated though,however on the second call we got an operator called Frank Murphy who claims to be from Amazon but obviously not who then asked for some information which you can guess by now is credit card details. This scam has been going on a while in the UK. Earlier in the year this was happening here in Ireland but now seems to be back in action.

After being asked to press 1he said calls are recorded for training and quality purposes which is utter bullshit and once telling him the same back he then hung up, Above is the two numbers you need to watch out for and just block them on your house phone or mobile phone. Other incidents on similar scams would be to download software onto your PC and this gets them access to everything, Amazon never ask for such information or call you either to renew subscription so be aware it has already cost people millions. These calls came in on our senior posters house phone but we will try record them in full should they come back or call my mobile as I have call recording software on it,that will be interesting.

If it happens to you head here

Update. Called back again. Have a listen https://youtu.be/k0r08sScbt0
