Had phone call from "Amazon"? on the home phone which very few persons have the number.
I always use my mobile for anything bought on line.
Automated call asking me to pay my Amazon prime membership,so I put the phone down.
Please advise others.

I get one of these calls at least twice a day, never had Prime, You’re right to just put the phone down. Like you I never order on phone, I always use on line ordering.

You are right to put the phone down BUT do cheque on your amazon account as I paid for Prime for many months and didn’t know I was paying I did get the money back but not before it had been taken out for a long time I must have inadvertently used it one time without realising and unless you take it off your account it keeps on keeping on

This is one of the most prolific scam calls, we often get six a week spread over three phones.
