Watch out for this Amazon Prime scam that has cost victims in the UK over £400,000 in two months! You will receive a phone call saying that £99.99 has been taken from your bank card as membership for Amazon Prime by hackers and that they are from Amazon security and want to refund it and or protect you or some such ridiculous story. DO NOT BELIEVE IT. They want you to access your computer with Team Viewer where they will be able to access your bank account and empty it. Our advise is let them talk a while and listen to their lies and lull them into a false sense of security and then before you start giving them any personal information from your computer let them have it with an earful of what you think of these thieving robber scam merchants.trying to steal money from vulnerable people. NEVER install any software as a result of a cold call. Unsolicited requests for remote access to your computer should always raise a red flag!
