Re: "Amazon Account Hacked" Scam

I've received a couple of calls in the last few days from a pre-recorded message stating my amazon account as been hacked and X amount of money has been taken. Then it asks for me to press 1.

One of my friends reported receiving a similar call this weekend about their Amazon Prime account.    Different number though, so they are possibly spoofing the caller id.

The operators wont be motivated to block spoofing as end of the day they make money from the calls.  It is what it is sadly. :(

But I own a BT phone which did seem quite effective on my landline, the caller has to ID themselves before the phone actually rings.
