Amazon call

Postby Sam12 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:59 am

Is anyone else getting the call from Amazon with a recorded message?

We are getting it at least 3 times a day at the moment which is really, really annoying.

We have a call blocker but this call must be coming from outside the UK so just gets through.

Oh, I know it's a scam.

I just wondered whether anyone else was getting as many calls every day as we are - or are we being targeted for some reason - and have they been able to stop it happening.

This has been going on for at least a month now.

Doesn't reflect well on Amazon does it?

Why should it reflect badly on Amazon if it’s a scam and ie not Amazon ?
It’s actually quite flattering for them that they are so successful that scammers imitate them?
They will either be blanket random number calls or your phone number has been leaked .

Thank you Sam12 for bringing this to the attention of the readers on this forum who will hopefully pass it on .

These scammers are so convincing that is why we have a problem , A word to the wise if you receive a phone call that asks for any personal information JUST PUT THE PHONE DOWN no reputable company will ask for personal information over the phone that includes Amazon or anyone else for that matter.

Sounds like he’s more irritated by the constant phone ringing rather than engaging with the call contents. :shock:

It is possible to block all international calls using your service provider features. Best thing they introduced since sliced bread. :clap
I still get the occasional spam that displays fake impossible phone numbers due to ip phone number spoofing. Their time is wasted listening to the answer machine.
