Same here, just this morning, had a call purportedly from Amazon Prime and asking me to press buttons, I just put the phone down.
I have an unlisted number so where on earth do they get my number?

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

That's 2 Amazon Prime calls - one from a landline and one from a mobile. I reported both to www.actionfraud.police.uk/report-phishing
