This “SCAM” is UNPROVEN:
Watch out…they’ll phone and record your “YES” reply to use to scam you on another call…
This “SCAM” is UNPROVEN:Moreover, even if such a scenario existed, it’s hard to imagine why scammers would need to utilize an actual audio recording of the victim’s repeating the word “yes” rather than simply providing that response themselves. As far as we know, phone companies, utilities, and credit card issuers don’t maintain databases of voice recordings of their customers and use them to perform real-time audio matching to verify identities during customer service calls.
It’s the latest scam. The fraudster phones and asks a question trying to get you to reply, “YES” which they record for later use against you.
Don’t reply at all, nothing, not a word…just hang up!
