Friends, the scammers are out in full force now and are using Amazon as a way to scam people out of their money. We know that the scam calls can be relentless, but unfortunately there are those out there who want to take advantage of people. Members are receiving phone calls from an individual claiming to work for Amazon with a story that sounds believable, but it is an attempt to get debit card and home banking information.
First, Amazon has placed scam alerts on their website. Rarely does Amazon make phones calls to individuals regarding any transaction. Most activity is handled through your Amazon account. Furthermore, they will NEVER ask for your banking information. If you receive a phone call of this nature, respond by simply hanging up the phone. Share this information with your family, friends and neighbors. Let’s all do what we can to protect our hard earned money. Stay Vigilant!
