Type of a scam Phishing

Robo calls starts with silence then after one says something (I erroneously said the wrong word instead of saying hello i said --- "yes?") the robo voice in a stupid female voice "i was having trouble with my microphone headset' this is a scam to use your voice recorded saying yes to get one's accounts to approve scam charges. Hopefully all my credit cards and bank accounts know of this as they protect me from such fraud typically.

Type of a scam Phishing

A person(female) called on the phone and asked my wife if her name was (my wife's name). When my wife replied yes, caller hung up. I tried calling the phone number back and it rings once and goes to a busy signal. Tried for 1/2 hour and still got the same results. The call was today 3/7/17 at 6:04pm. I have heard about a scam to get people to say yes so they can use that voice response to get that person signed up for services and send a bill. Using the yes response as authorization for future services.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

She told me that I had won some sort of online contrast but I never enter any. Unfortunately at the beginning of the call she asked if I could hear her and I said yes. Then I remembered seeing articles about scammers recording an affirmation. Ugh!

My cell phone rang with a local number, the person sounded like they fumbled the phone and said "can you hear me ok?" my office mate advised me it was a scam and it was a recorded message where they just wanted to record me saying "yes." I hung up.

asked if I could hear him. When I said yes, I realized what I had done, and hung up without getting name of business. No recent phone number was listed in my cell phone. No money was taken at this time, but I hear that they use your voice to accept purchases in the future.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a phone call from the girl pretending she had phone issues and asking if I could hear her, I said yes before I even thought about it then she went on and it sounded like a recording telling me that I've recently stayed at a hotel and was up for winning a trip or trying to interrupt her and ask questions to see who the heck she was and that's when I realized it was a recording and when I researched issue online I read that people are trying to get you to say yes on a phone call

Type of a scam Phishing

At the beginning of the call, they ask "can you hear me?", trying to solicit a "yes" answer. I have read about this type of scam where they use you voice recording to authorize charges to credit card numbers that have already been stolen via a data breach. I have received this type of call many times before, as well.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

I keep getting these calls from a business that doesn't ID itself. They say I've been selected to win a free cruise. Then they'll say "Sorry, I can't hear you ; I'm having trouble with my husband. Could you please answer YES and I could transfer you to an attendant right now." I have never answered them as I am aware of the scam about answering yes. These call are really annoying & I wish they would stop!

Type of a scam Identity Theft

6-12 phone calls a day to my home number trying to get me to call the number above. When you call, they try to convince you that your computer has a problem and they need to remotely take over your computer. Total scam. Also, sick of receiving so many scam phone calls. Please stop them!

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

I was at work on a business call. I only answered my cell phone, because my daughter was at the dentist and thought it was her calling to let me know the outcome. I asked the caller to repeat their question but quickly realized it was a recording that starts as soon as you answer phone asking the following questions. This appears to be one of those scammers trying to receive an answer of "YES" to make purchases in your name:

1. Over 18?

2. Annual income of 40,000 or better?

3. Credit card to use for the vacation *

* As soon as I said "NO" in response to the 3rd question, the call was disconnected.

My mom recently had told about the "YES" scam after reading about it on FB, and they attempted to scam me today! I know better than to ever give any kind of personal/credit card information to anyone - no matter what!!!

Type of a scam Tech Support

When my husband was alive 3 years ago. He gave some company 450.00 to remotely fix our computer. After he passed they kept calling saying they had to get into my computer for a virus and updates. The said I had to get a flash drive and use someone else's computer to download stuff. So I paid them 250.00. And used my daughters laptop. When I put the flash drive in at home my computer never worked. So I gave it to my son, and I bought a brand new one. Changed all my passwords and etc. Well my son found out that company put a fake version of windows on it.

They call me about 7 times a day from all kinds of numbers. My daughter in Law, son and myself have told them we haven't got that computer anymore. Stop calling or we are going to report you. They don't care. I asked them to please refund my money. They said they needed access to my bank cause the don't use checks or money orders.
