Police Warn of Another Phone Scam
Police in several states are encouraging people to avoid answering simple questions from phone numbers they do not recognize. Authorities say scammers are asking questions such as, ‘do you pay the household telephone bills?’ Or ‘can you hear me?’ If you say yes, it can be recorded and the scammer say that you have agreed to something. People are reporting calls of home security agencies or social security firms. Police are urging people to just hang up the phone when receiving those types of calls.
