Amazon Scam


A caller purporting to be from Amazon will tell you that there is suspicious activity on your account and they can help you fix the issue if you log into your account with the caller.  This is an attempt to gain access to your personal information.

Also, some scammers will try to get you through emails indicating you forgot to finish payment or you need to click a link to track an order.   Usually, if you look at the email address of the sender, it will not be an Amazon email.  The link is an attempt to gain access to your personal information.


While some of Amazon’s departments do call customers, the retailer will never ask you to disclose or verify sensitive personal information or offer a refund that you do not expect. Amazon suggests protecting your online account with a two-step verification system.

The best advice is not to trust that any incoming calls are coming from the number showing on your caller ID. If you aren’t sure, hang up and log on to your account to find the company’s customer service number.

More tips:

Do not respond to any incoming robocalls claiming to be from Amazon or another trusted brand. And don’t follow instructions to press 1 or call another number.

Be suspicious of robocalls or other communications with bad grammar or stilted language.

If you have concerns about your Amazon account, hang up on the robocall and log in to your Amazon and relevant credit card account to check for suspicious charges.

Takoma Park Police would like to remind everyone to be cautious about who they talk to and to never blindly give personal information or money to anyone.
