The Better Business Bureau of the South Plains in Lubbock is warning of a new scam which could have serious consequences for the victims. We have received reports of the scam occurring in Levelland.
The Better Business Bureau of the South Plains reports and influx of reports connected to the phone scam being called “can you hear me?”
The scam will go something similar to this, the caller will ask you a simple yes or no question. You are advised if you receive one of these calls from a number you do not know hang up and report to local authorities. If you answer yes it is being reported that the caller will record your voice saying yes and will use it to bully you into paying for something you did not agree to and they say, we have you saying yes and will splice the recorded “yes” into another conversation.
If you fall victim to this scam, contact your local authorities and report online to the Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org/scamtracker/us
