A couple of times this month I received a recorded phone call allegedly from an Amazon employee stating that they have detected possibly fraudulent activity with my account. I was then prompted to press 1 for more info. "I immediately knew this was a 'scam call' for the simple reason that I don't have an Amazon account!" After that I decided to do some investigation into this. "Amazon is aware of this scam and is advising it's customers if you do receive one of these scam calls don't fall for it, just hang up & 'definitely don't press any numbers' when prompted!" You can always check your Amazon on-line account yourself if you have any concerns and then contact Amazon customer service directly if you have questions. These Amazon scammers have also been using hacked email accounts. If you receive an email with similar content just delete it without clicking on any links or attachments included. You're also encouraged to report these calls or email to the Better Business Bureau, https://www.bbb.org/ and the Federal Trade Commission. https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/ Not a bad idea to also report this activity to your state's Attorneys General office.
