You may receive an email, text, or call about an amount of money you owe Amazon for a purchase. Or perhaps regarding an amount of money you have already paid. These are usually fraudulent. Do not respond. Instead, login to the official Amazon website to see if any unusual transactions have occurred. You can also contact your bank or credit card provider to confirm if any charges were made.
Payments Using Gift VISA CARDS
A popular method of fraud is paying using a pre-paid credit card. Amazon will never ask you to go to the drug store or Walmart to purchase gift VISA cards. Such request are an indication of a scam.
