Type of a scam Employment

I received a phone call from the above number offering a job opportunity. The person on other end has a heavy african accent. I mistakenly said "yes" during the conversation. When I called back the number, it turned out to be a google number and would not allow to reach someone or leave a message...definitely not a business.

The "Can you hear me" scam. Woman answers the phone, waits a couple of seconds before saying, "sorry I dropped my headset, can you still hear me?". She continues her pitch, including how I won a free stay on their cruise line (no name of cruise line is mentioned) and that they just needed to ask me a couple more questions to continue, followed by "is that ok"? At that time, I just hung up.

Type of a scam Phishing

I have received at least 15 robo calls in the last 3 days from several different cities as well as unknown id, out of the country, etc. I am sure at least once I said "yes" when the person (recording )said "can you hear me?"

I do not answer the calls anymore when I do not know the caller.

I do not want to change my number because my phone number is on my business cards, and all my friends have my number. I just want to know how to stop it. I also do not want to lose my ID.

I was called by a what sounded a very nice young lady. She asked if I could hear her ok and I said yes. Apparently now this scam has recorded my voice and charges to various accounts of mine might be vulnerable to fraudulent charges.

The "yes" scam. The caller attempted to get me to say "yes." By identifying herself as a travel agency then asking "Can you hear me?"

Type of a scam Phishing

I was at my office this morning, and someone called, asking if my job title was "X" (and then listed the job title). I was confused by the question but answered 'yes'. The person (in a foreign accent) said that's all they needed, and then hung up. I later read an online article about the yes scam, which I'd already heard about, and then wondered if I'd just gotten scammed. I called back the number, and it was out of service. It may have just been a weird phone call, but between the oddness of the question and the fact that the number is now out of service, I'm very concerned.

It was a robocall designed to get me to say the word "yes". I fell for it. It was a woman's voice. After I answered, the voice said, hello? I answered yes without thinking. Not sure what happens next but I think they got what they wanted.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

Scammer called, I answered the phone, they said hello, and I said hello - they said hello again, and I said, "yes who is this?" They immediately launched into "oh let me adjust my headset. You have been at one of our properties and we are offering you a prize" to which I hung up (I have been to no properties anywhere). I believe they were trying to get me to say "yes" to use for cramming.

Type of a scam Phishing

Received many calls from various numbers. Girl states she dropped her head set and asks if I can hear her. We hung up with no conversation. We have received at least 100 calls or 1 to 2 calls a week with the same girl from various numbers over the last 6 months. Always the same message.

We have not engaged in any conversation with these multiple calls. We just want them to stop. We do not know what kind of business they are supposedly representing.
