If you get a robo-call from a number you don’t recognize, your best plan of attack may be to just hang up without speaking a word, this according to The Better Business Bureau or BBB.
WETM reports, “…the “Can You Hear Me?” scam uses a recording to prompt a “Yes” response from you.
They say that simple response can be recorded, and may, in turn, be used to sign you up for a product or service.
The scammers can then demand payment.
If the payment’s refused, the scammers reportedly may use your “Yes” to confirm the agreement.”
Be careful out there, and for some tips on how to avoid this scam…head to WETM.
