Common Sense Account Protection

I received a call today from Amazon.

I recognized the 206 area code so I made sure to pick up.

Them:  “Hello, this is MySellerSupportName calling from Amazon.  Is this the account owner for MyAmazonStoreName?”

Me:  “Yes, that’s me.”

Them:  “For verification purposes, can you tell me the email address that you use to log in to Seller Central?”

Me:  “How do I know this is Amazon calling?

Them:  “That is a GREAT question and I’ve never been asked that before.  I’m calling about a case ID and I can give you that ID so you can verify.”


Make sure you don’t get scammed.  Ask for verification that the caller is who they say they are.
