Amazon Scam Alert
The Town of Palm Beach Police Department would like to alert the community to recent unsolicited phone call scams from imposters claiming to be Amazon customer service. The imposter will offer an unexpected refund and ask for personal and banking information for later fraudulent use. Please be reminded that while Amazon may make outbound calls, they will never ask you to disclose or verify sensitive personal information, or offer you a refund you do not expect. You can make complaints to the Federal Trade Commission at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, and you can always contact the Police Department with concerns and questions at the non-emergency number, 561-838-5454.
