Please be aware of the following con that is currently ongoing nation wide.
This has been put out today by numerous police forces.
Action Fraud has received over 500 reports about an automated call impersonating Amazon.
The recipient of the call is informed fraudsters have used their personal details to subscribe to Amazon Prime and are instructed to 'press 1' if they wish to cancel the subscription. When victims do this they are automatically connected to criminals posing as Amazon Customer Services who attempt to remotely access the victims computer in order to steal personal and financial details.
Remember, never install any software as a result of a cold call. Criminals like to use 'TeamViewer' to remotely access your computer.
Always question uninvited approaches in case it is a scam. Put the phone down and contact the company direct.
Remember to ensure the phone line is cleared before dialling out and if in doubt put the phone down and terminate the call
