"Robo call caution"
Fri Mar-29-19 07:57 PM by bobbo

  

          

Just received a call stating that it was on a recorded line; the caller asked "Can you hear me OK?" If you answer "yes" the caller can use that "yes" for their purposes and may use it to confirm anything they want. My response was "What is the purpose of this call?" at which point the call terminated. Beware of what you say on these calls. Best advice is to not answer if you don't recognize the caller ID. In my case the ID was local, and in retrospect, it was spoofed.

Thanks. I've heard about this before, but this is a useful reminder, and should be shouted from the rooftops.
