The amazon scam is a two parter, we got a call from an Asian sounding guy claiming to be from Microsoft security telling me I have unusual activity on my bank account (how Microsoft would know, is a strange one). I started throwing questions at him and as soon as he stuttered I had him and told him where to stick the phone where the sun doesn't shine and put down the phone, literally a minute later the phone went and a lady claiming to be from amazon telling me I had unauthorised ansnd suspicious use of my amazon account. If it was suspicious I asked why didn't you stop the transaction and asked what my password and account number are, she said it was a breach of data protection then asked me to give her it so she could check it, again I told her to stick the the phone. So if you're not sure ask for info and don't give any. |
