The study reveals a range of deceptive tactics employed by scammers in each category:
  • Official Amazon Phone Numbers: Scammers exploit the trust associated with authentic Amazon services, attempting to manipulate individuals by posing as representatives of legitimate Amazon entities.
  • Amazon Partners: Fraudulent calls imitating Amazon's partners seek to mislead individuals by impersonating credible services, potentially leading to the disclosure of sensitive information.
