It’s A Great Way To Save Money IF You’re Already Buying

As you may know if you’ve read elsewhere on the site, we would never condone buying for the sake of it. We don’t believe in shopping without intention and will always choose quantity over quality. But if you’re buying for your small business, or if you’re self-employed and need office supplies, having Prime could save you a lot of money in the long run.

We love our Amazon Wish Lists (Gill in particular – she has about 30!) and have one on this site if you’re interested in taking a look. There are some great items on there, mostly aimed at people working from home.

Please Be Aware Of Scams

If you’ve seen the UK TV programme about scam call centres recently, you’ll be aware of the many scams being carried out in the name of Amazon. Some of these involve call centres in India and they make calls showing a UK phone number. They purport to be from Amazon and tell you that you’ve been incorrectly charged for a year’s prime membership.

They then ask you to add a programme to your phone or pc/laptop – through this, they can access and control your data. It will also enable them to move money from your account/s into a third party’s account, hence stealing your money. Please do not continue with these calls (if you answer them) and never give out your personal details: PIN numbers, bank details etc. Never be afraid to put the phone down if you don’t really know who you’re talking to.

Amazon has a lot of information concerning email, text and phone call scams which you can read about here.

If you do believe you’ve been scammed, please contact your bank immediately, and also report it to ActionFraud.
