Don't Say "Yes"! Watch out for phone scammers!

Scammers are using recordings of a victim's own voice to try to convince them to send money.

According to recent reports, when a victim answers the phone, the scammer asks "Can you hear me?" or some other question. When the victim answers "yes" the response is recorded and the scammer later uses that recording to try to convince the victim that they have agreed to pay the scammer money.

It is important to know that just because you hear a recording of your voice saying "yes" it does not mean that you owe anyone money. The debt would only be valid if BOTH parties know what is being offered and agree to the payment for services or goods.

Don't allow yourself to be persuaded to send anyone money unless you have previously agreed to purchase the goods or services and on the price.
