Fake amazon fraud call
Aug 6, 2020
Monetary Loss: $0
Earlier today I received a call from a caller id which stated amazon. On this call, I was advised that my account has fraudulent activities by someone named NICK BRANDON, address **** cleaventon avenue, Dayton, oh. I was told that that person purchased an iPhone today and a Mac book yesterday.
I was then instructed to download an app so they can scan my phone to look for spyware. I did so like an idiot. I was reassured they were here to help me.
I was then told to go to my bank app and go to zelle to request the money. I found that strange, but they said due to Covid, they had to outsource and this is how it’s done. When I went on my bank app instead of requesting the money, they wanted me to use the sent feature. Which I knew from sending my daughter money that option was not a request, rather a sending funds option.
I asked to speak to manager, they gave me someone else. When I raised my concerns, he said look at your caller Id. It says amazon. We would not be able to do that if we weren’t from Amazon. When I tried to do a three way call with an amazon rep. They started to get mad. I was able to get a screen shot of who they wanted me to send the money too.
I was given a request id number *****. They tried to have me zelle them $2247.00. I am very afraid of what damage they may have done when they scanned my phone and what information they could of grabbed. PLEASE STOP THEM. Everyone I spoke to had an Indian accent
I received a phone call from an automated voice that told me that an iphone 11 was purchased on my amazon credit card for like $900. Then it directed me to press 1 to talk to somebody. I pressed 1 then it hung up.
Call came up from Amazon saying someone was attempting to use my amazon credit card to purchase an iphone. Said I should wait on the line to be connected to a specialist. I hung up immediately and contacted my bank who said it was a phishing scam and it was good I hung up.
I was called about a suspicious charge on my visa/debit card from Amazon, my caller ID showed the call from Amazon. The man said that I had suspicious charges on my acct. and he was with the fraudulent dept. I even received emails from Amazon stating someone was trying to purchase a gift card for a $100.00 and another one for $50.00 dollars. He worked on securing my account asking me to go onto an app called Quick Start, he stole all my information from my phone, accounts, credit cards, and personal information. Luckily I caught on when he said I had to pay $100.00 dollars for his service of guaranteeing my Amazon account was secure along with others or if I didn't pay, my Amazon account would disappear. I hung up with him, he called several times and my husband answered the phone telling him if he doesn't stop harassing his wife, he'd be forced to contact the police, he never called back. I'm now changing passwords, our credit cards were stopped, we have to get a new bank account, new email address, possible new phone number, and pray he hasn't gotten access to any of our money.
They called Did not answer but they left message. The recorded message said I had and order for $149.00 they need to talk to me about and I should push #1 to talk to someone to fix the problem. I have no orders outstanding with amazon.
