I got a call from someone claiming to be from amazon.com. Said that there is a suspicious transaction on my account and asked me for my email to verify I'm the amazon user. I was skeptical but he did send email with @amazon.com email account. Gave him the verification no that came to my email. Then he shared the suspicious transaction via email. Then he asked for debit card details so say he cancel transaction on his end. And he said some transactions on credit card also which I said I never store that on amazon. He said my IP sever compromised. Gave him details as well. All card details given including the pin behind card. Didn't feel comfortable so after call ended i called bank to lock both cards. There were 11 otp passwords I received when on call with u- 5 for debit card, 6 for credit card but I don't think will transactions went through. This happened 13th sept 2.18-3.28pm. At point of card blocking debit card lost $1600.70 and credit card lost $1760.93. Working with bank on fund recovery.
