Scam Description

I received the following text on my phone at 12:19 pm Aug. 22, 2022 – (my phone number is 518-894-5128): “Order Generated: Your order has been placed on AMZON and your card will charge $480.92 for ID AMZ99013372 if you want to cancel call Amazon care at +18086492087”
I made no such order and when I checked my Amazon account on their website, there was no such order at Amazon, so obviously it is a scam.
They did not get away with anything because I did not call the number, but if I had called they might have tried to get me to say “yes” and then target me in some way.
