Important Scam Update
Our neighbourhood coordinator has kindly advised us that another of their members received an automated telephone call claiming to be from Amazon stating that they had opened an Amazon Prime Account.
They are then told if they wish to cancel they should press 1 on their keypad.
The call is then transferred to a fraudster posing as an Amazon operative who will then advise them the purchase went through as a result of a “Security Flaw” on their computer.
They will then ask for remote access to your computer to “rectify this problem”, this is to steal your personal information.
NEVER ALLOW ANYONE TO REMOTELY ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL COMPUTER IF THEY HAVE CONTACTED YOU.
