I was trying to log into my Amazon account from a different browser FoxFire and it gave me a message that said I need to call a number due to "suspicious" activity. That number 888-461-1876 connected me to a guy who said he with Amazon customer service. I was suspicious and kept grilling him but I finally let him hook into my computer. I was still suspicious and he typed Amazon customer service into my search engine and this number came up (888-280-4331) and he said he would call me back from that number and he did. I was still suspicious-especially since the caller ID said potential scam-so I discounted with him. Now I am worried what information he got from my computer.

They called me saying that my Amazon account was hacked they wanted me to download a app. I felt weird about the call they didn’t even ask for my information. I hung up and called Amazon customer service and they said they never called and this is a scam call. I do not want this to happen to anyone else I know that this is a scam and many people may fall for it.

I received an unknown phone call claiming someone placed an order on my account with Amazon for an iPhone 11 for $799.00 and they would help me get my money back! I told them this was a scam to get my information! They tried to deny it. I hung up and called Amazon and they told me to send this information to you!
