Image result for can you hear me scamThis is scary. The Better Business Bureau is warning people about a new “Can You Hear Me?” scam. Basically you get a phone call from an unfamiliar number. The person on the other end asks if you can hear them. You say, “yes” and they’ve got you. In the scam, they’re recording you and that “yes” you just said can be used to sign you up for products or services you never wanted. They then demand to be paid, using the recorded “yes” as supposed confirmation of an agreement. If you think you’ve been targeted, write down the phone number and file a scam report with the BBB’s Scam Tracker and the FTC’s Do Not Call list — and check your credit card and other accounts for unwanted charges.  I checked Snopes.com and they claim this is unproven, but CBS News obviously thinks it is legitimate enough of a threat to report it.  You can read the CBS News article at: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/beware-new-can-you-hear-me-scam/
