My latest garbage robocall.

Recommended Posts

Today I got an automated message from "Amazon" asking me to confirm a purchase of an iPhone for $799. The message asked to push 1 to confirm the purchase or 2 to deny it. I just hung up and logged on to Amazon (no unusual purchases).

The spoofed number on my cellphone started with +850 then a bunch of random numbers. I didn't recognize that country code. A quick Google told me it's North Korea. I doubt the call came from that country, and that they're trying to help peons like me prevent credit card fraud.

Anyway, if you get a similar call, I suggest not pressing 1 or 2 and just hang up.  Something that is very fishy is going on.

Might be a trick.  Do you have a dog?
