I've had several phone calls today purporting to be from Amazon Prime ....which I don’t have ....and saying they are going to take a subscription out of my bank account ...and the usual press 1 to stop it ! I have checked it out and it’s yet another scam ....so don’t be fooled ! 

I have found this recent BBC article about the scam .

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Baz

 

Amazon wouldn't ring people about renewing Amazon Prime anyway. Anyone with Amazon Prime can cancel it by logging into the Amazon website.
For those with exisitng Prime subscription:
Under Account & List select Your Prime Membership
On the left under Membership Management there's the option to End Membership and Benefits.

If it's a free trial it's a slightly different process.

Yep,  I subscribe to Amazon Prime.  You can sign up to a trial and if you don't want to continue just cancel before the trial period ends.  The service automatically renews annually and sums are taken out of the bank account by direct debit.  As El Loro mentions above, you can cancel at anytime and Amazon  don't contact personally on this matter.

I've just received one of those scam Amazon phone calls.

I hope you told them where to go El 

It was a recorded message so I would have had to press 1 to get to speak with a scammer. So I just ended the call.

Oh yes ....I did the same ...but I still swore down the phone for good measure
