Amazon Advising Midlands People Not To Engage With Scam Callers

A number of people in Laois and Offaly have received calls.

Gardaí in the midlands are warning about a new phone scam. 

A number of people in Laois and Offaly have received calls from individuals pretending to be from Amazon.

The company is advising people not to engage with the caller and to contact their local garda station about the call. 

They say they take phishing and spoofing attempts on their customers very seriously.

If you are concerned that you have received a phishing or spoofed e-mail or text message, please report it to us using one of the following options:

Open a new e-mail and attach the e-mail you suspect is fake. Send this to stop-spoofing@amazon.com. Sending this suspicious e-mail as an attachment is the best way for us to track it.

If you can't send the e-mail as an attachment, you can forward it to stop-spoofing@amazon.com.

You can report the number from which a phishing text message was received, to Action Fraud at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk in the UK, or in Ireland, to your local Garda station.

Note: Amazon can't respond personally when you report a suspicious e-mail to stop-spoofing@amazon.com, but you may receive an automatic confirmation.
