The Amazon call scam is doing the rounds and Trafford Trading Standards are asking everyone to be on their guard.
A random call from someone claiming to be from Amazon will say that money has been spent from your account and they want to help you recover it, the caller will then ask for personal and financial details including bank account details to allegedly repay the stolen money back into your account.
This is a scam! Never give personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or respond to calls, texts or emails that come out of the blue.
Talk to friends, relatives or neighbours. Wait for half an hour then call your bank if you are worried – never call immediately for the scammer may still be on the line and you could end up speaking to them again.
