'Can you hear me' phone scam makes you a victim with one word

posted by James Burlander - 

Police said if you receive a phone call from someone asking the question “Can you hear me?” please do not answer, just one word can make you a victim of a scam. When you answer YES to that question, the criminals record your answer and use that recording for their advantage.. 

You answer your phone. The caller asks "Can you hear me?" Take a good long pause before you answer -- you could be the target of the latest twist on a classic con that wants to record your voice so the scammer can authorize unwanted charges elsewhere.
