POLICE have issued a warning after fraudsters stole more than £1million using Amazon Prime scam calls.

Dorset Police released the warning on behalf of Action Fraud, who received 500 reports of an automated call impersonating Amazon.

The system says the victim’s personal information has been used for an Amazon Prime subscription and they should ‘press one’ to cancel the purchase.

After pressing one, victims are transferred to a person posing as Amazon customer service who try to remotely access their computer to steal details.

Action Fraud say to never install any software as a result of a cold call, always question uninvited approaches and call the company directly.

“It’s ok to stop the discussion if you do not feel in control,” they said.
