HIGHLIGHTS:  There's a new phone scam where the first thing the person asks is, "Can you hear me?"  And when you say "yes," they record it . . . then they play that recording when they use your stolen credit card to buy something and the credit card company calls to confirm the purchase.

 

 

FULL STORY:  See, THIS is why I say it never pays to be polite to anyone EVER.

 

 

Apparently there's a new phone scam going on where the first thing the person asks is, "Can you hear me?"  Your instinct will be to say, "Yes" . . . and if you do, you're SCREWED.

 

 

Because they're recording you saying "Yes" . . . so they can play that back when they use your stolen credit card number to buy something and the credit card company calls to confirm the purchase.

 

 

So if you get a call that starts off with "Can you hear me?" just hang up.  Or if you think it MIGHT be a legitimate call, don't say "Yes" . . . say something like, "I can hear you.
