Scam call warning: Amazon Prime ‘renewal’

An automated scam call is impersonating Amazon Prime, telling victims their subscription will be ‘renewed’ for £39.99. Here’s what you need to watch out for.
We’ve been made aware of an automated scam phone call designed to trick Amazon Prime customers into connecting with a fraudulent ‘account manager’.
It’s similar in tactics to the ‘Visa fraud department‘ call, which also instructs victims to ‘press 1’ to be connected.
From here, it’s highly likely scammers will attempt to extort bank details and/or personal data from you.
Saw this on Rip-off Britain and have had a few calls myself. They are recorded calls
and ask you to press button 1 which is a shame as with the live ones I like to be rude
and downright abusive to them.
