She didn’t sound very elderly but evidently in a frightened tizz - she’d had a recorded message saying she owed a lot of money to Amazon - and she’d never ordered anything from them!
But she was ringing what she thought was the number they’d given anyway.
Thank goodness she got me instead - I was able to tell her it was a scam, there are so many about, bastard criminals just trying to steal your money - and to hang up at once if she gets any calls like that again.
She sounded so relieved, poor thing.
But it made me see how people who are a bit naive can so easily be intimidated into complying.
