The caller ID said. “Connective Therm, 609-572-7239,” I suspected it was a robocall and I was right, but with a twist, it was a fraud call.
The recorded voice said in perfect English, “Your Amazon account has a suspicious purchase of an iPhone for $1009.87, to dispute this charge press 1 now.”
So, I pressed 1 and the recording repeated and so I tried it again. This time I was switched to a male (probably in Pakistan) with a thick accent and a lot of background noise that sounded like numerous other operators taking calls. This was obviously a phishing (scam) call where the “Amazon guy needs to verify your account information.” If you are an idiot you will give it to him.
It is the season for scams and it will only get worse until Christmas. So never provide any identification or account information to anyone who calls you! DON’T DO IT. If you must, look up the Amazon (any company) number yourself and call them.
