Amazon Bank Fraud

Posted on 10th November, 2020

Beware of bank fraud! A neighbour recently received an automated message today saying a large payment had been made to Amazon and she should give her bank details to get the money credited back. Luckily she hung up. I contacted the bank to check and they said these people can access your phone line for up to TEN MINUTES after you've answered a call to them, so if you are going to ring your bank, do it from another phone or wait at least ten minutes to make sure they're not still accessing your phone line.
