Albuquerque, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas issued a Scam Alert regarding ‘Can you hear me’ phone scams. Scammers attempt to get victims to say the word “yes” during a call and later use a recording of the response to authorize unwanted charges on the victim's utility or credit card account. According to complaints the Office of the Attorney General and the FCC have received, the fraudulent callers impersonate representatives from organizations that provide a service and may be familiar to the person receiving the call, such as a mortgage lender or utility, to establish a legitimate reason for trying to reach the consumer.
