Scam alert-Can you hear me?

MINNEAPOLIS -- A growing "can you hear me" phone scam may be the scariest scam yet because it can make you a victim if you say just one word.

"Yes."

This is how it works, according to the Better Business Bureau.

You receive a recorded call from someone who provides an introduction and identifies the business or agency they supposedly represent. After the introduction, the recording will ask if you can hear the caller clearly. If you answer "yes" there's a possibility that the scam artist behind the phone call has recorded you and will use your agreement to sign you up for a product or service and then demand payment. If you refuse, the caller may produce your recorded "yes" response to confirm your purchase agreement.
I think I got one of these a few weeks ago. Someone called and made it sound like they dropped their phone/ear piece. It was really real. I did not say much and have not had any weird things come up on a bill. Most calls I let go to voice mail unless I know the number.

Spoiler for length
Spoiler!

Last year I got a call from a detective Brawm or something claiming I had a warrant out for my arrest for delinquent payment on a past loan years ago.

In some ways it was plausible I have a past outstanding loan from one of those payday fast cash trap and the only way I got out of the loop was just not paying them and cancel the check at the bank. Well that was 10 years ago or so it does leave a mark on my credit report until I decide to pay it off but it isn't a high priority but not for $1200 and all I had to do was pay him $600 and settle it and the detective would take care of my warrant for me. Seemed legit not.

If I don't recognize the number, or if the number shows up as blocked, I just don't answer. Ever. If it's a legit call, they'll leave a message. And if I get a second call from the same number, I'll block it.

I'm no Sr Citizen, but this happened to me. Took months to untangle. Ever try to explain something to the phone company? Pure ****ing hell.

It's easy to get caught up in them and they hook you because they know you will be in the next time pay them cash for the check but write another check because you need the money for bills. It's a cycle. I ended it by not going back in there.

I received a letter today from my bank that said they were canceling my accounts. Googled the number on the letter and sure enough it came up as a scam.

These bastards are getting trickier and trickier. I can't even imagine how many gullible people fall for these scams.

Yes, they are sharks but you committed bank fraud. Bouncing a check can result in you being arrested if you do not make good on the check after being demanded to do so.

Can't say in your case that the person who called was really a police and not a collection agency but you better be careful they didn't file a charge against you that is outstanding.
