      I am in Ireland so answered a call from what is an Irish mobile number.
      This was a recorded message about Amazon Prime. I was told €69 would be taken from my account unless I cancelled my subscription by pressing 1.
      Sounds genuine but this was received on my number unknown to Amazon.
