Don't say "yes" to the "Can you hear me?" scam

By  | 

United States (Lilamax) - There's a new telemarketing scam. A caller will ask 'can you hear me?"

If you respond 'yes', then the scammers now have a recording of your voice saying "yes."

Even if you never agree to buy anything, you might later find out you've been signed up for a home alarm system, a cruise, some added service for your phone.
