People all over are buzzing about this enigmatic phone number and wondering what it could possibly mean. Is it a scam? A telemarketer? A secret code for something much more sinister? In this blog post, we’ll unravel the mystery behind the 888-802-3080 number once and for all, so sit tight and get ready to discover the truth!
What is “888-802-3080” on Amazon?
Before starting to discuss this phone number, I need to explain Amazon Prime Video as a part of the “Amazon Prime” program. These Amazon channels are additional pathways through which customers can watch top and trending videos and films on Amazon.
Amazon will charge for the next membership period when your free trial or membership period ends. According to Amazon’s official website, Amazon Prime membership fees are:
- Monthly: $12.99 (plus taxes)
- Annually: $119 (plus taxes)
- Prime Video membership: $8.99 per month (plus taxes)
As you enter the page to purchase a subscription, you can see some channels are associated with “888-802-3080”, and they will ask you for a charge. You would assume these charges were from Amazon or Prime Video, but they are from the scammer “pretending to be Amazon.”
The process looks easy; a user will call the number to purchase the subscription, and after they assure you everything is under control, you will be asked to pay the charge with a dedicated bank account. Finally, when the transaction is completed, everything is gone off; you cannot find those guys and, of course, your money.
Is “888-802-3080” a scam?
Definitely yes. I confirmed with Amazon that “888-802-3080” is not an official Amazon phone number, and they said, however, they are not sure whether it is a scammer.
Well, this seems not logical to me; this number calls people and introduces themselves as a part of Amazon corporation, and asks about charges for Amazon prime video, and they disappear like a wind. If it is not spoofing or scamming, then what is it?
To make the story more precise, I have borrowed some comments from the internet for you;
- “This is not an Amazon phone. It is a scam, and they are taking money from people’s accounts, coding it as Amzn Digital with this phone number. Report this to your bank asap!!!”
- “They charged my debit card, and this is the number associated with it on my bank statements. It is a scam. CALL YOUR BANK.”
- “I have four charges to my bank account in two days, for a total of $82.70. I need this money refunded ASAP!! Unfortunately, I have no record of these charges on my amazon account!”
- “This caller ID has been used to charge my credit card with Amazon prime movies and Itunes. It is urgent to resolve this issue since this person has been stealing from me since July 2019.”
- “They charged my husband’s BankDebit card $20.00 for
- “2 prime video charges showed up on my credit card statement (888-802-3080). Didn’t order anything. SCAM!”
You can find tons of these texts in online groups or on social media.
But what is Amazon digital charge?
When you hear someone say they were charged $0.99 by Amazon, they are usually referring to the digital charge associated with their Amazon account. This charge is a monthly service fee that allows you to access and use certain digital content and services from Amazon, such as e-books, music, videos, and apps. The charge also helps to cover the costs of maintaining and improving these services. If you do not want to continue paying the digital charge, you can cancel your subscription at any time.
We’ve unraveled the mystery of 888-802-3080 and found out why it’s so popular. It turns out that this number is actually from a telemarketer, meaning if you call it you may be bombarded with offers. But on the flip side, it can also be a great way to get some extra cash or find an exciting new job opportunity. Now that you know what this number is all about, you can decide for yourself whether calling 888-802-3080 would be worth the risks and rewards for you personally.
Why is Amazon Prime video still charging me?
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you may have noticed that you’re still being charged for some items even though you have a Prime membership. This is because Amazon Prime video is a separate service from the Prime membership, and it has its own fee. The good news is that you can cancel your Prime video subscription at any time.
How do I stop Prime Video charges?
If you’re being charged for Prime Video and you didn’t intend to sign up for a paid subscription, there are a few ways to stop the charges.
First, if you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can cancel your Prime Video subscription through your Amazon account settings. To do this, log in to your Amazon account, click on “Your Account,” and then select “Manage Your Prime Video Channels.” From there, you should see a list of all the channels that you’re subscribed to–including Prime Video. Click on “Prime Video” and then select “Cancel Channel.”
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership, or if cancelling your Prime Video subscription through your account settings doesn’t work, you can also contact customer service for help.
