Different numbers keep calling but Not leaving a message Caller: Could not speak plains english
They say they are PayPal but very suspicious
Said that my account had been compromised, sent me a text with a code to relay to them, I asked them to tell me the last item I had bought from Amazon they said they aren't authorised to tell me that. I asked to know the email account linked with the account also cant tell me that. I hung up on them
Caller: Fake Amazon
I had a chat with David who was calling from the Amazon. Apparently I had ordered a cannon camera to be delivered to Germany. I offered to send him lots of money and even give him my bank details. He got indignant. All he wanted was a name for delivery. ‘David from the Amazon’ I said. He got angry and said no that was his name. We played this game for a couple of minutes then he hung up on me. I’ve probably opened myself up to more phishing but it’s lockdown and I’ve had wine so I’m happy for the social interaction
Caller: She said there was a problem with my Amazon account
She said my Amazon account had problems and they suspended it but there was a problem with my credit cards I had previously used. I told my Amazon account was closed. She told me which cards I had and the card numbers. Somehow they were able to remove all my money from my banks and it was over $5000 that I lost. Fraud Police are now involved.
Caller: A male with an accent
At 9:00am (WST) he asked me about a transaction via PayPal for an amount of money (can't remember how much). I advised I didn't have a PayPal a/c so couldn't be related to me. He got a little testy & repeated the claim about an amount through PayPal related to me. I reiterated I didn't have a PayPal a/c (& had never had a PP a/c). He got angry & suggested it was a payment made to Amazon from PP (??) & did I want him to cancel it. I said it wasn't related to me & he could do whatever he wanted. He said to check my text messages - immediately, that I would've received a text msg from Amazon - I said 'okay' & disconnected the call. However, sure enough, at 9:02am I received a text msg from Amazon - it stated a 6-digit number "xxxxxx is your Amazon OTP. Do not share it with anyone".

Caller: scam caller saying they are from amazon
guy wanted to confirm a purchase of a $1500 laptop on my amazon account, I told him I don't have an Amazon account, he got testy & started saying that my phone number was used to make the purchase on my mastercard I said i didn't order it & hung up
A male with an accent said he was from Amazon. He said he had urgent information to tell me about my account. I asked him how he got my number and he actually said in an agressive manner "From Amazon stupid" then he hung up. Yes this guy keeps calling about a $4000 laptop that we supposedly purchased from Amazon and the guy got angry and he was an Indian and my husband started yelling at him and told him to get f@#^ed. Don't trust the scammer. Claiming to be from Amazon saying I had an unauthorised transaction for a laptop in China. Said they needed to verify my details over the phone to cancle it. Had my email address and first and last name. They ‘transferred’ my call to their ‘head of billing’s’ so they could confirm my bank details to cancel the account. As I started questioning the hey got very testy and angry. As I said If there was a purchase on my account to cancel it as they should already have my details and I am not giving any further details over the phone, they hung up on me after arguing with me Didn’t answer but it rang at a lateish hour where I refuse to answer calls from anyone not on my contact list. Based on the comments here, it appears my concerns were valid. I have blocked them. Don't bother picking up.
Scammers pretending to be from PayPal saying your account has been compromised and to check your credit card details with them.
Caller: Some dodgy Indian guy
I received a call, first I could not get who it was, I asked what it was about. Then he said someone was trying to use my credit card in Germany for 1000+ dollars, and that he was concerned it was "fraudulent". I asked are you from xxx ? and I stupidly mentioned my credit provider name...and that I don't usually get calls from them, they just cancel the card and I call back to re-instate it. Immediately he asked, is it Mastercard or Visa? WTF???? he would know if it was legit!!! I told him not to worry that I would call them instead. He got really angry, that I didn't "trust him", honestly the poor verbal communication was already a red flag, I am annoyed with myself.
