I'd rather Amazon Prime (which is "popular") than the
increasingly-aggressive ones that claim I'm being deported due to my
Visa having expired. "We are on our way to your home."
The frequency and variety is certainly on the increase. My other half's
mobile is a single digit (the last one) off my own, so typically her
phone lights up then mine does 30-90 seconds later. Robo-scamming for days.
Isn't there an AFP one as well? Where you're being taken to Court due to
not paying a parking fine (or some other small thing). Seems crazy,
though vaguely believable to the average Joe/Jenny.
