Head up! There’s a new telephone scam that’s trying to get your money.
According to Globalnews, it’s called the ‘Can you hear me’ scam. You’ll get a call from a number you’re not familiar with asking if you can hear them. If you say “Yes” the scammer behind the phone call has most likely recorded you saying that and will use your agreement to prove you wanted to sign up for a product or a service contract like credits cards.
There are no reports that say any Canadians have dealt with this scam but it’s getting really popular in the U.S
So if you get a call from an unknown number don’t answer it and don’t give out any personal information over the phone.
