Getting the fake Amazon order scam calls?

“If you did not make this order, press 2” or whatever blah, blah, blah…
I get 4 or 5 of these per day and all from different phone numbers. Some of the calls are supposedly from my own area code. I got one awhile back that was from my own phone number. Sure wish the phone companies could find a way to put an end to it.

Some even leave voice mails. That costs 2 calls.

That’s a new one, never heard of this one. I usually get the “Your cars warranty has expired, press whatever number to be connected with an agent.

“…wish the phone companies could find a way to put an end to it.”
they are commercials.
sort of like wishing for commercial-free TV.
it is too much money for the phones to quit.

Don’t get calls, but getting like 3 Amazon SCAM emails a week.
Down from 5 a day just after Xmas.
Figure trying to cash in on Christmas buying frenzy I guess.
Gotten about 10 – “I have hacked your computer – pay me money – follow this link” emails of late.
All the Best,
Jeff
