"Can you hear me okay" recording.

Victim Location 71110
Type of a scam Phishing

Answered the phone and heard: "This is Emily - can you hear me?" I said, "Yes" without thinking about it. She went on to say "Great - you have won a vacation package..." When I heard that, I remembered reading about the "Can you hear me" scam that allows caller to access banking information. I immediately contacted my financial institution and made then aware of the situation.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Caller said,"This is Josh at the customer service dept. Can you hear me OK?"

I said, "Yeah, what customer service department?"

Caller then proceeded to tell me that as a preferred customer, I won a free vacation cruise..."

I said, "not interested". and hung up.

Then it dawned on me that this might be a phone phishing cam call.

I received a phone call from telephone number 1-316-221-5554 at approximately 2:20pm on February 22, 2017. I answered the phone and the person/automation said, "Can you hear me now?" As I was replying 'yes' my wife was telling me about this scam. But, it was too late.

I use my cell phone for work. Phone rang with UNKNOWN number from Newton, MA. When I answered, the woman's voice (robo voice) asked if I could hear her okay. I said "yes" and immediately realized it was not a client of mine but rather the scam I heard about on the ABC evening news with David Muir. I immediately hung up phone but had already responded Yes to the question of whether I can hear her. I hope I did not obligate myself to anything but wanted to report the incident. It was today, Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 3:47pm eastern. Per you question below, since this just happened minutes ago, I hope I don't lose money in future. Thank you.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

Person called my grandpa, they told him MY name and said I had gotten into a crash and was in jail for being at fault, and needed thousands of dollars. My grandpa being the loving man he is, paid the scammer $6,000 dollars, and then called me (wish he would have called first) I am fine, no crash, etc. I prevent another $4,000 dollars from being sent out. The person claimed to be an attorney.

Victim Location 65712
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Caller asked if I could hear her then offered a vacation package deal. I realized that I should not have said "yes" as it could be used to authorize other charges and tried to get her to give me the name of the company. I could not understand her answer and told her repeatedly I was not interested. She eventually hung up.

My cell phone rang with a number I did not recognize, I answered it and a woman said hello, hello.. When I answered yes, the line hung up. I redialed the number immediately and the recorded message states the number is no longer in service. Concerned about the recent scams where your voice is recorded saying yes to use in scams.

Type of a scam Phishing

We have been hearing in the news about people calling and the first thing they say is "Can you hear me?". After saying "yes" the scammer will use the person's recorded "yes" answer to do fraudulent activities (open accounts, deplete bank accounts, etc.). On the morning of February 7, 2017 at 10:12 am, I received a call on my cell phone. The person said to me, "This is Josh from customer service. Can you hear me?" I immediately hung up, and this person did not call back.

Say yes scam

Victim Location 87105
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

On the evening of February 13, 2017 at 5:58 pm the phone rang and I answered it. the person at the other end asked, "Can you hear me?" I replied, "yes" and then she proceeded to indicate that my husband and I had stayed at their resort and apparently was trying to sell a vacation at a resort. (My husband and I have never been to a resort and I knew then it must have been a scam). I, then, quickly hung up the phone.

I didn't find out about this scam until today when I heard people talking about it.

I was asked if they can hear me. I said 'yes.'

Victim Location 98503
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Voice of woman fumbling with a headset that asks if you can hear her and then continues on to tell you about a discounted trip you qualify for because you once stayed in a resort. After a few seconds it becomes apparent that it is a recording. I have not yet lost any money, or funds, or am aware of how the scam works. Caller ID indicates that the phone number is coming from Seattle.
