    Requested to call 1800 491 580. Obviously a scam, but also thanks to the people that put the other notes here, so I can check. Hopefully, it is random and they have not hacked anything.

  • April 8, 2021 at 1:24 AM by an anonymous user from: Parkes, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

    Just got a message from them today, saying my order for a Cannon camera ($3999.00) was taken and to call this number 'if a dispute' (sic). Obviously, I did not buy a camera so I did not call.

    • April 8, 2021 at 2:18 AM by an anonymous user from: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

      got the exact same message. gosh, I guess we both bought the same camera

  • April 8, 2021 at 1:10 AM by an anonymous user from: Richmond, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    Half an hour ago I recieved an sms saying your order has been placed for 3689$ au from Amazon, For any dispute call 01800-491-580.

    When I reach out to them on 1800-491-580 they know our email id and Name. And they pretend to be an Amazon Fraudulent team.

    They said for security reason they need to verify OTP code via SMS.

    When I said the OTP they tried to access my amazon account. Luckily I dont have any card attached to Amazon.

    Great escape from the fraud.
