Type of a scam Phishing

I received a phone call on my mobile number from phone number 614-528-4382 on 3/9/17 at 3:52 pm EST. It was a recording of a female voice. After I answered the phone she asked, "Can you hear me?" presumably in an attempt to get me to say "yes", which I foolishly did. Then the woman on the recording goes on to say, (with a little laugh) "Oh I'm sorry I was having a bit of trouble with my headset." At that point I hung up. This is at least the 4th time I have received this exact same phone call in the last couple of months. It is always the same recording. I had never been a victim of fraud until immediatley after the first call when fraudulent charges showed up on one of my credit cards. The calls and fraud charges may or may not be related but this phone call is definitely a scam designed to get the unsuspecting victim to say "yes".

Man with Asian accent called my cell phone. He said he was "calling about the Windows Computer". I said "We don't have a Windows computer, we have Macs. Who are you and how did you get this number?" He hung up right away.

I received a call from lady, with a low voice and asked if I could hear her. When I said no, she hung up. I believe this is a scam. I did called that number back (1-513-796-6783) When they answered the phone they said that I won a cruise. I said that this was a scam and they hung on me. I just want others to be aware this is happening.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

Calls everyday saying that we have been selected to lower our credit card interest on our credit card. We do not pay interest on a credit card. It is from a foreign company using phone numbers that when called back are out of service. These are just the numbers from March 6-8,2017. When I talked to the person calling I requested that they remove my number and that they were a scam and they wanted me to hold on, so I hung up. We are on a do not call list. Very ignoring because 2 of the times the number showed up as River Oaks Apart (751-1511) and Johnny Beehner (858-1095). The other times no number. These calls have just been in 3 days. They called also last week.

I suspect this is one of the "yes" calls. Caller simply said "hey Coffman". This is my last name. When the caller was asked "what is this about", they hang up immediately.

They said their name was Josh and it was something about a cruise or vacation. He then said "can you hear me ok"?

I then hung up. Someone later called the number back and they said it was a survey that was now closed.

The caller/scammer hung up after I said "yes" to his question: "Is this [my name]"? When I called the number as shown on my caller ID just seconds later, I received a recording saying "the number had been disconnected....". I later learned that this was indeed a scam!

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.

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.
