Yes. Just a couple hours before I too noticed some unusual activity in my account. Specifically, the view history in my Amazon account is showing a he’ll lot of products which I have never searched in my life in any site. As a precaution I changed my password as my Apay balance was intact.

Last week faced the same problem, report the same immediately along with an email, they will cancel the croma order and you will be asked to change the password and you will get back 105% of the amount that got deducted within 4-7 days..

I also faced similar issue. My account was hacked recently but fortunately there was no pay balance in it and hacker changed the primary email id if Amazon account. Raised issue with Amazon and they did everything to get my account back to normal.

I doubt this fraud is from DD msg. As this happens with friend but he is not on DD. Also he has not updated application from any links. Still croma gv transaction done from his account

I also received this message in dd. I ignored it as I am skeptical with things like this. I used to be ok with sideloaded content earlier when phones were not that powerful and mobile number wasnt linked to everything. Now, I dont just install anything from anywhere.

There are lot of phishing sites  looks like Amazon , those are sharing on WhatsApp . Some users can’t identify it’s original or not. They’ll submit their login details there.https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/574944/original/Screenshot_20190713-081828.png?1562986582https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/574945/original/Screenshot_20190713-082516_2.png?1562986602
