Notice of privacy practices
The following fraud and scams are not from amkshoproom.com online shopping website. We are listing them here in an effort to educate all our site visitors and customers to notify you about these activities. If you feel that you have been defrauded, or come across any signs of fraudulent act please don’t hesitate in letting us know so that we can act fast on it. Amkshoproom is here for the betterment of the people that do business with us and every report on fraud will be forward to the authorities.
A good rule of thumb: If someone is contacting you to verify your personal information, it is very likely you did not provide it to them in the first place, and it is not a legitimate request. Legitimate companies will not expect you to provide your social security number or other personal information when they call you. If you receive a call like this, do not provide any information. If in doubt, call back a trusted number for the company, such as the one on a statement or invoice, the back of your credit/debit card, or on their official website (Do not use the phone number provided by the person on the phone or sent through a suspicious email.)
Don’t respond or reply to an email, phone call, or text message that:
Requires you to supply personal or account information directly in the email
Requires you to click on a link to provide more personal or account information
Threatens to close or suspend your account if you do not take immediate action
Invites you to answer a survey that asks you to enter personal or account information
States that your account has been compromised or that there has been third-party activity on your
account, then asks you to enter or confirm your personal or account information
Amkshoproom.com fulfillment center boxes
With an online shopping website company such as Amkshoproom, brand abuse is inevitable. If you received an order confirmation email from Amkshoproom but you did not place an order, it may be a phishing scam attempting to gather information, or in some cases, spread malware.
Signs of Fraud
The recipient may have not placed an Amkshoproom.com order
The message contains very poor grammar.
There is no order number or details about the order. A real order confirmation email contains the details of your order without clicking on any links, as well as where it is being shipped and the payment method.
The email listed as the sender is not from a @amkshoproom.com domain. You can see the embedded email address by hovering your cursor over the “from” line in the email.
There may be multiple emails listed in the “to” line, or there may be “undisclosed recipients”
How to Protect Yourself
If you actually placed an order and are suspicious about the email you received, log onto your amkshoproom.com account to check your order status. Remember not to click on any links within the email claiming to take you to your account.
Keep your virus software updated on all your computers.
Person In Need
Scammers may pose as relatives or friends, calling or sending messages to urge you to wire money or load prepaid cards immediately. They’ll say they need cash to help with an emergency—like getting out of jail, paying a hospital bill, or needing to leave a Town/City. The goal is to trick you into sending money before you realize it is a scam.
They call or text from numbers that look familiar
They play on your emotions
They swear you to secrecy
They need the money immediately
What You Need to Know
1. Caller ID can be faked
2. Always talk to someone to verify what was told to you
Avoid been a victim stay alert!
How to Protect Yourself
Be alert for phone and email scams from individuals that could be impersonating a loved one. Providing gift card numbers over the phone should not be a method of providing funds. Once the numbers are provided, the funds are gone. ALWAYS validate that the loved one is in trouble.
