McGrath of Harlow BS: 'Amazon' scam (49) RE: BS: 'Amazon' scam 04 Sep 20


We'd had that one too. Put the phone down without even responding. Checked with the Amazon website that there wasn't any such order.

Any phone call about money of any sort is pretty well bound to be a scam. Though it's worth checking, just in case, but you don't do that by relying on any phone numbers you get from the call. And of course the same goes for emails.

Though I did once get a phone call from a strange bank, telling me about an account that was at the point of being shut down as inactive for so long, and I risked losing its contents - and it turned it was true. It had been set up by my late mother decades ago, and she'd never told anyone. But stuff like that doesn't happen very often, while phone scams happen every day.
