The call is from a scammer who is after a recording of your voice (more precisely, a recording of you saying ‘Yes’). Then, you voice sample can be used for making purchases or other financial transactions under your name.
In some cases, saying ‘Yes’ represents signing a verbal contract — something that equals clicking ‘I agree’ or ‘I accept’ during online shopping. These so-called voice signatures are legitimately used by many companies when it comes to asking a client to confirm account changes or money transfers.
Do you think that it’s impolite to hang up on a stranger? Well, think again! Don’t forget to share the video with your family and friends – it can help them save their money.
