    New Scam

    This is the second day in a row that I answered the phone and a feminine voice said "Hello I'm Alexa from (Medicare or some kind of medical line). How are you?" I said "okay" and I heard a click and get the dial tone back. I mentioned this to my brother and he said that is some kind of scam. They get a recording of your voice and add to it so you are approving something. Now I am worried what I will be getting in the mail!

    It's not a new scam. It's called 'vishing' (voice fishing) and it's been around for years in any incarnations. All they need is for you to say the word 'yes':

    If you have caller ID, never answer a number you don't recognize. If it's legit, they will leave a message. It does sound like a scam. Sadly it's the world we live in.

    I don't answer the phone for this very reason....

    I had "yes" recorded once and they ripped me off bad but I fought it and I won....but it took a lot of my time...

    Just use the recorder from now on.and check your credit report to make sure you haven't made a large purchase...

    Re: New Scam

    I had a phone service re-seller try this shit last year and filed a complaint with the CRTC for their deceptive marketing and business practices.

    Recently, I have added our business number to the national DNC registry because we get scammers trying to get us hooked into their GOOGLE directory nonsense.

    Pretty much now, I just hang up on anyone called 'Dan' or 'Bob' or 'Cheryl' who speaks with an Indian accent.

    I used to do that, but now I just set the receiver down so they can still hear the TV and wait until I hear the dial tone. It doesn't stop the calls, but it gives me a sense of satisfaction knowing that I have wasted their time instead of them wasting mine.
