Why you shouldn't say "YES" on the phone
Recently, a new type of fraud has been reported involving voice recording and the use of the word "yes". In this article, we'll look at why you shouldn't say "yes" on the phone.
How scammers get the answer "yes"
Fraudsters use various methods to gain access to your personal information or money, one of such methods is the use of voice recording. Scammers can call you and ask you questions that can only be answered with a yes. For example, they may ask, "Are you you?" or "Are you willing to receive the service?". If you answer "yes", then your vote will be recorded and used to create false evidence that you have given your consent to any transaction or service.
Fraudsters use this method to confirm transactions or services that you did not request. For example, they may use your voice recording to confirm the purchase of a product or service that you never ordered. They may also use your voice recording to gain access to your funds or personal information.
Therefore, it is very important to avoid using the word "yes" when talking to strangers on the phone, especially if they ask you to confirm any details. Instead, it's better to ask your questions and clarify the information. If you are not sure who is calling you, it is best to postpone the call until you are sure that this is really the person or company that you would like to deal with.
Also, if you get a call asking you to confirm any details or deals that you didn't ask for, then it's best to refuse it. If you already answered "yes", then it is better to contact your bank or company and clarify the information. You can also contact the police and report suspicious calls.
In conclusion, you shouldn't say "yes" on the phone because scammers use this method to create false evidence of your consent. It is better to ask your questions and clarify the information, and if you are not sure who is calling you, it is better to postpone the call until you are sure that this is really the person or company that you would like to deal with. Be vigilant and protect your personal information and finances from scammers.
