I did press 1 - then you get a second press 1 - I did not do that and
stumbled onto the fact that you can listen into
the barnful of operators scamming other people.
Press 1 again and you get the operator.
I initially almost fell for this scam as I had a Prime account that I
thought that I had cancelled but after pressing 1 for the
Prime account, I asked about my iPhone from Amazon and the pleasant
young lady attempted to help me get the said phone.
Great mirth from my end !

>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.
