Don't listen to Snopes - The "yes" phone scam is real

Glad I read this.

How this phone scam works

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has been receiving complaints from people across the U.S. about a phone scam making the rounds.

What's happening is, people are receiving automated calls from someone claiming to be an employee of a certain business. Some companies they are supposedly representing are cruise lines, home security agencies, or social security firms.

The criminal begins the call with a simple, "Can you hear me?"

Warning: Do NOT answer that question on one of these unsolicited calls. It's a scam!

If you answer that question, or any question for that matter, with a "yes," the criminal can use it against you. They are actually recording the victims' responses.

If they record you saying "yes," they can use it to claim that you agreed to certain charges. They then threaten to sue the victim if they attempt to deny the charges.

These calls usually show up with the local area code on the caller ID. This lets the victims' guard down, thinking it's someone local and they might know the person.
