Cybercriminals are pretending to be Amazon workers in order to steal people’s personal information, according to a recent report.

The AARP on Thursday detailed several scams involving criminals pretending to be from Amazon’s customer service or security teams. The scams were all reported on AARP’s fraud helpline, according to the report.

In one instance, a man called a number he thought was for Amazon’s customer service in order to help his wife get back into her account. According to the AARP, the number turned out to be for a scammer who tried to sell the man a fake $999 computer program to help prevent hacking on his computer.

“I mean, what’s he going to do with it all. What can you spend all that money on?”

The question was asked of me by the finance director of a big UK bank who, while he admitted that he “got plenty of money”, was still simply staggered by what one of the former CEOs of one of its constituent parts had made – and was still making, through a truly vast pension. They were, at the time, a cause of some controversy given the grim road down which they’d led the company.

Although rhetorical, it was a good question. Yet that former CEO was a veritable pauper by comparison to the Amazon boss Jeff Bezos.

On Monday, shares in the online giant took on some rocket fuel and headed off for Mars, like Bezos presumably hopes his space exploration company will one day do. Having ended last week at

40 Money Habits That Can Leave You Broke

frank lamjus

Big or small, some financial habits can zap a solid financial plan and leave smart savers with empty wallets. To avoid buyer’s remorse and similar guilt about neglecting your finances, you need to know what habits might be costing you extra.

In the list of things to waste money on, smartphone apps are a big one. Those $1.99 purchases seem inexpensive enough, but they can snowball — especially if you have kids who are adding to the overall purchase price or frequency.

Consider free app downloads exclusively or cap yourself and your family with a monthly app budget.
