Just received a call which displayed as 0425 354 906, went straight to
an automated female voice with Australian accet saying that my Amazon
Prime subscription (which I don't have) for $99.99 will be auto renewed
and press 1 to speak to an Accounts representative if I do not wish for
this to happen.
I don't have an Amazon prime account and didn't press 1, although I was
tempted to, just to hear how far they tried to go to obtain my bank or
other personal details.
FYI in case any of your customer (or your family) may have a similar
call. Enough people must still think these are legit or the scammers
wouldn't keep trying.
I also got another "your package will arrive" SMS scam about an hour ago.
