The following message has been received from Kent Police

“People are currently receiving Automated scam calls impersonating Amazon Prime, telling victims their subscription will be ‘renewed’ for £39.99. The call will then say that you should ‘press 1’ to speak with an ‘account manager’.

 Do not press 1, simply hang up immediately. Amazon will never contact you in this way, and the call being completely unsolicited should also set off alarm bells.

 As always, do not ASSUME, do not BELIEVE, always CONFIRM everything.
