Phishing Scam Impersonation Scam
Scammer called, impersonating as an Amazon merchandise officer and offered assistance to cancel fraudulent transactions made by another person using my account". The scammer read out the details of real recent purchases and other "fake" transactions.

Next, he asked for email address, OTP and card number in order to "cancel the many transactions". After the "first cancellation", I felt that something was amiss and questioned for verification of cancellation which he did not provide but continued with processing the "second cancellation". when I pursued further, he could not continue and eventually, hung up the phone.

I immediately called the bank and the operation cancelled the only one transaction (in inr currency) made by the scammer under global garments trader. finally, the bank proceeded to cancel my card. no money was lost.

** the scammer is a male who spoke with a heavy indian accent. his number: +65 67640106
