▲ EVERGREEN DRIVE — Complainant said he received a call from a man who said his Amazon account had been hacked and that several charges were being made.

Complainant said he was transferred to a person who said he was with one of the complainant’s banks and told him several thousand dollars was taken from his account. Complainant said he was asked how much money he had in each of his accounts, which he told the caller.

The caller said if the complainant didn’t do as asked, he would be arrested. He hung up and a call back displayed the number of the Statesboro Police Department, which had been spoofed. He was advised to contact his banks and advise them of the scam attempt.
