Amazon Prime Scam

Amazon Prime Scam

We have received reports from many Hertfordshire residents relating to a scam for Amazon Prime following a trial period.

You receive an automatic call telling you that your Amazon Prime renewal is due for £39.99 a month but if you wish to cancel it press button 1.

When you do this a person comes on the line and tells you she will hand you to a technical advisor.

The technical advisor then tells you to follow his instructions  

Go into Google and enter www.teamleader and download this application  

If you do this he/she then has complete access to your computer - for ever

If you receive these type of calls please report the instances to

If you have signed up to Amazon Prime for a 30 day trial, you will not get automated calls reminding you for renewal, it will automatically renew ongoing membership if you do not cancel, to cancel please call direct to Amazon from the contact details you received when initially taking out the trial period contract.
