Scam Warning: Amazon Prime scam
Halton Trading Standards wants to make residents aware of an Amazon Prime scam you need to look out for. Scammers have been telephoning consumers (sometimes this is automated, sometimes it’s a person) stating either their Amazon Prime subscription needs renewing or the price has gone up and so further payments are required.   
It is likely scammer will be after your bank details and/or personal details and will do this by trying to take these details over the phone, via a website or even getting you to download an app on your mobile phone or computer.
This is a scam, simply hang up the phone.
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 0808 223 1133

Kind regards
PCSO 21122 Maggie Sumner
