Scam Description

On December 27, 2022 i was contacted by a person claiming they were from the Royal Bank of Canada Fraud and Security department. In a recorded message said that there was a charge made on my visa bill from Amazon of $400 and a money transfer of $2100 US Dollars to someone in California. The guy on the phone told me that there is an investigation saying that my identity was compromised, he then told me to go to 4 different stores to buy jokers mastercard worth $500 each and then tell him the numbers on the cards. i have contacted the royal bank myself this morning abut this situation
