Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I received a call from someone from the above number. She said that she was setting up a time to install motion sensors in my bedroom and bathroom to monitor my activity. She said that my doctor ordered it and it was approved by my True Blue insurance and that Brian from True Blue should have already gotten in touch with me regarding this. I am disabled and I do have True Blue Insurance, but no one has ever contacted me about this nor would I ever allow this to take place. I contacted True Blue but they no nothing about this. I immediately hung up.

I run a small museum. We just received a very suspicious call from a phone number that came up as a Las Vegas NV number (702-466-1550). They asked to speak to the business owner. I replied that I was the museum coordinator and we were owned by a historical society. Please note that many legitimate salesmen will ask to speak to the business owner when calling us so I was not yet put on high alert.

They then asked two more common questions but then immediately hung up with a "thank you" the moment I said the word yes. Those questions were: Is your address xxxx? Is your phone number xxxxxxxxx?

As a museum with a publicly available phone number we are often targeted by various scam emails and I have done some research into the various scam types circulating. This phone call seems likely to be something similar to the scam detailed in this article. http://www.omaha.com/money/this-phone-scam-just-needs-you-to-say-yes-hang/articl... />
Noticing the similarities immediately, I regret even responding to them at all.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a call from 901-987-8845 on my cell. They stated they were offering lower credit card rates. I pushed out to get my number on do not call list & he said I had to pay $285 to be removed & continued.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a phone call and the voice on the other end was a robotic female which proceeded to congratulate me on winning a sweepstakes vacation as I had, according to them, stayed at a vacation property which qualified me for the reward. After I asked which property qualified me and what was the name of the company that was calling me, I was met with various pre-recorded, customized, but nonetheless vague responses. Eventually I was asked if I was under the age of 70 but over the age of 18. I answered yes to this question. After that, there were no further questions and the I got disconnected. Looking this up online it seems I likely was the victim of an ongoing phone scam trying to get callers to say yes on the phone.

Although I have not lost money at this point, I might in the upcoming future. I will continue to carefully monitor my financial accounts for any possible sign of fraudulent or unauthorized charges.

When you answer, the caller says your first name only. If you say yes, the caller then hangs up. No information given except a phone number on your caller ID. If you call the number back, it only gives you an option of 2 to remove yourself from the list.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Phone call where speaker acts as though they dropped their phone/had headset issues then asks you to confirm if you can hear them (by saying yes) and then a prerecorded message about a vacation package in Florida (Orlando) plays.

Unknown if they will attempt to use recording to act as authorization to make charges but if i see suspect charges I will file an updated report.

Type of a scam Phishing

Person with Indian accent asked on a static filled line if I could hear him. I said yes, than he goes on to say I am having problems with my computer. I said don't not call back and hung up on the man. But then my husband reminded me of the story the other day on The news of a scam where they get you to say yes then have permission to add bogus charges to various accounts. I don't know what to do know. Please advise

Said hello, can you hear me. I responded yes, then immediately yelled no, no, no, no, no and hung up. They were saying something about a survey for free tickets while I was yelling no. It was a recording.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

I was contacted by phone at 10:00 am on February 24, 2017 by the phone number above.. (501-313-0259) My phone says it was a Little Rock, AR number. When I answered it originally sounded like a real person saying her name was Katie (I think, not for sure on name) and that she was adjusting her headset when I said Hello for the second time. Then her spill went on to say they were contacting me based on information received from a drawing/prize type of entry. She said I'd get 75% off of a trip to Orlando, FL some other location in Florida, rental car, and then a 2 day cruise to the Bahamas. Once her speech was over, and at this time I believe it was all a recording, she says can I connect you to someone to take more information or something to that extent. My response was "We are not interested, no thank you." I then hung up the phone. I believe this phone call was a scam.

Call my office phone and mumbled and I thought they asked if this was (my name). I said yes. Then said adjusting headset and then I hung up. I am getting calls like this daily so now I know how to report the numbers when I find them on caller id

Victim Location 60074
Type of a scam Phishing

A woman called and said "Hi this is customer service, can you hear me ok?" I responded "yes" before realizing I was aware of this method, where a positive response to a natural question is recorded to use for identity theft. I then hung up after being told I was "pre-selected" for something. Thankfully I already have identity theft protection, but this should be investigated. The phone number 262-682-8051 was identified as from Muskego WI on my mobile phone, reverse lookup seems to confirm the same.

Victim Location 37085
Type of a scam Phishing

Lady called and asked can you here me. Then stated I was on vacation recently but could not tell me where. She wanted to offer another vacation. I hung up but stated yes when asked if I could hear her. I called the number back to find out what company was calling but it goes straight to automated message to state this survey is closed. This call just happened 30 minutes ago so I don't know if I am a victim of theft at this time.
