Supposedly just had Amazon on the phone saying they are taking the full annual amount of £79.99 for my subscription instead of £7.99, although I have not changed anything on my account. They used my landline for the call and said to push 1 if I wished to talk to someone about it. Amazon only have my mobile number so presume it is a scam and they are calling random numbers with this message. Anyone else had one.

Thanks people, always reassuring to hear your comments. What will these people think of next.
literally hundreds, its a scam
You may find you get lots of these riptide- we got them every day for a couple of week's in January -plus a few about internet security compromised and warrant out for tax fraud, all with robotic prerecorded messages-but they stopped after a couple of weeks and have had nothing since
We have had a spate of them recently. They are a scam.

Is there anything we can do to stop them?
I had the same call yesterday. I don’t even have Prime!
Lot of this about lately.
I've had several and I don't have Prime. A friend has them and she hasn't even got a computer.
sub question: what happens if you DON'T hang up, does it cause the scammers any inconvenience by loosing the use of that line?
I had this recorded message from "Amazon" yesterday. Just hung up.
Khandro//, does it cause the scammers any inconvenience by loosing the use of that line?'//
Dunno but I always put it on speaker and leave it until the message ends.
Once upon a time, if the person you telephoned didn't put the phone back properly on the cradle you were unable to use your phone, but I suppose that no longer applies?
Yes got this call this morning , just put the phone down .
Khanadro, that has a scam of its own built around it. They call you and invite you to call them back on whatever number for your own security. But they don't hang up - and this means that when you think you're making a phone call to your bank (etc), it's actually them again.
