Amazon Scam call (for those not already aware)

I got a call from a (unknown to me, but I was expecting some calls, otherwise I would usually ignore) mobile number yesterday. Waited a couple of seconds and a pre-recorded female (sounds like text to speech) voice saying your amazon prime is due for renewal… at that point I hung up - LOL.

Anyways, I googled, amazon scam calls and found this is a known scam.

Seeing we may have a large population of OzB Prime users. I thought I share this info, but I think most of you are savvy enough ๐Ÿคž to not be fooled. Ignore if you already know this :)

If you like, let us know in the comments, if you had received such a call recently.

PS: I couldn't see a past thread on this, but I could be wrong ;) (sorry if someone already mention this before!)
