Yet another scam has come to my attention today.
Our phone rang and I didn’t recognise the number, which was 007412 589633. When I picked up the receiver a robotic voice came down the line telling me that my Amazon Prime account was due for renewal, and for ease of renewal all I had to do was press number 1.
Neither Sam nor I have an Amazon Prime account. Some people may be taken in by the automatic robotic voice message, but I suspect that if you press 1 you would be invited to enter in details of your bank account.
Be watchful. These scams are becoming more sophisticated!
