Apparently I’ve bought a $3000+ canon camera from Amazon and they want me to call this number. Idiots!!! Caller: SCAMMERS - FAKE AMAZON CALL CENTRE
I received a text confirming that I purchased a laptop and if it's was NOT me then to call this number. When I called it sounded like a pretty genuine call centre he answered as xxxxx from Amazon. I was already suspicious of the whole situation so when I explained that I recived an order confirmation for something I didn't order. He asked me for an order number when I gave it to him he had only half of the correct info (right price but wrong brand) which made me even more suspicious. Then he said the laptop has been ordered on my account but the charge hasn't gone through yet and would I like to cancel the order? I said yes to which he said ok can you provide me with your email address and phone number... This is a bit of a red flag as Amazon have both of those pieces of information already. I then said hold on a second I'm just logging into my Amazon account to double check my order history and he immediately hang up. I then checked my order history and there was no such purchase he was just fishing for my personal information. BEWARE.
They must have a new angle for this scam.
I received SMS stating a 'Dispersement' of $2189 successful for e-card via Paypal If disputed call +611800 940 887
Received message from random Aussie number saying ring this number if concerned about recent PAYPAL payment. Not applicable for me. Ignored. I got a text saying that someone had made a payment on my Paypal account. Rang back, knew all of my details, transactions etc. seemed very legit. Sent me texts with pin codes etc. sucked me in. Have blocked my cards now. Caller: Text message from 0403 478 120
Not even using the actual number in the message now. Zeros are replaced with the letter O.

My wife got sms to call this 1800 491 580 from Paypal for purchase of Eur 600. I got suspicious and i gave call from my home land line. All this guys are based out from India and looks like they are full fledge call centre as you can hear everyone is speaking over there and scamming people as commercial business.
They introduce as if its amazon call centre and when they realised that i have called from my land line they disconnect the phone.
I tried almost 6 times and all 6 time different people pick up the phone on 2nd ring and they put down the phone immediately they realised that this call has come from land line.
So i call from my non active mobile phone i have as standby for guest who used to visit home from overseas and they started talking and they asking me to give me thier amazon user id or email id and i gave fake id and they said they cant find my id there and then they said they want to send OTP ( one time password ) to verify that i am calling from right number and they want my OTP i recevied my otp but i gave them wrong OTP and when they realised that I am playing around they mentioned dont waste our time here we have lot of other jobs to do and put the phone down.
So Please avoid this people
Caller: Text message
Pretending to be PayPal now. Text from ‘PayPal’ saying my account had a transaction of 500 euros and to call if it was not me. Lucky I was on to it, checked my PayPal, no transaction. Hope this helps someone else.
Got message from 0422 579 387. Claiming, You paid 500 Euros to Int'I system limited from Paypal. If you didn't do it call on 1800 491 580. Seems scammer. I got text message supposedly from Paypal stating that Euros 600 has been taken from my account and If i dont recognise the transaction to call this 1800 number. My initial reaction was that it was genuine and called the number. I got response saying that "Your call is important to us.... some one will respond to your call" followed by silence. The message kept getting repeated after an interval of silence. I grew a bit suspicious and did a google search and realised that it is a scam. i immediately disconnected the call. Caller: Paypal
Apparently I paid 500 Euros to Int'l Info systems. No record on Paypal of this transaction.
Received a text message purporting to be Paypal that I had made a 500 Euro payment. This 1800 number was provided in the text as a link to contact if it was not an authorised transaction Caller: Paypal - It was a text message from 0414 455 011
Apparently I ordered something from Int'l System Limited via Paypay for Euro 600. If it wasn't me who placed the order then I should call 1800 491 580.
