Scam
Caller Name: Fake Amazon scam call by criminals phoning from India

This is a fake Amazon scam by criminals robo-dialing from India. The scammer pretends to be from Amazon and tells you that your Amazon Prime account will auto-renew with a direct withdrawal from your bank account. This is a lure to get you to respond to the scam and then the scammer tells you that he needs your credit card number or bank account and routing number "for verification purposes" so they can make corrections to your account. Amazon will never phone you like this and ask for your credit card or bank account number in any way! More than 99% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake IRS or Social Security officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty and credit card consolidation services, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to obtain your credit card or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic female voice speaking English to disguise their foreign call center, but then you end up talking to an East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers not to call does not work. I love to toy with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, and toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes so use up more of their energy and time so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scams, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals.
