The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued another warning about a scam that has continued to sweep across the nation. In its warning the Commission explained how a single word could cost you dearly. Here is how the scam works. A perpetrator will call your phone. When you answer, the caller will immediately ask, “Can you hear me?” If you respond, “yes,” the scammer will record your voice to use against you later by claiming the “yes” was your approval for any charges.
The FCC advised that anyone who receives such a call should just hang up.
