Action Fraud warn about Amazon Prime Scam
Warnings are also on Amazon’s own website.
Amazon state: ‘If you receive a suspicious phone call, e-mail or text message claiming to be from Amazon, asking for payment, personal information, or offering a refund you do not expect, please do not share any personal information, and disconnect any phone call immediately. Amazon will never ask you for remote access to your device e.g. by asking you to install an app. You can report suspicious spam in the UK to Action Fraud at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk, or in Ireland, to your local Garda station. Amazon will never ask for your personal information or ask you to make a payment outside of our website (e.g. via bank transfer, emailing credit card details, etc.).’
