Don't fall for the latest robocall scam!
Anyone who still has a traditional home phone usually dreads the hated robocall. As part of the latest scam, the caller, instead of mentioning who they are, instead asks "Can you hear me?"
The Federal Communications Commission issued a consumer alert against these scammers. When a caller says, "Yes," that they can hear the robocall, their reply is recorded and used to authorize fraudulent charges via telephone on the victim's utility or credit card account, the FCC says.
With that being said, be careful!
