scam calls

Alert message sent 04/09/2020 09:36:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Good morning.

We have had reports from residents who have received messages from someone purporting to be from Amazon, saying that payment has been taken from their account and their item will be dispatched.  A phone number is left for you to contact them.  This is a scam and the hope is that you will contact them and they can then take details from you to access bank accounts.

Please ignore/delete any such messages and definitely do not call the number provided.  If you are an Amazon user, they will contact you via email if you have ordered an item.

Please share this information with anyone you feel may be vulnerable to this scam.

Many thanks.
