An odd call - beware
I received a call from an unknown number and on answering a man voice stated he was
from Customer Services, but before I could ask what company he was from he said
" Can you hear me"
I replied " Yes I can hear you"., to which he replied " so you can hear me".
I replied "I can hear you".
He then said "I just need a yes or no"
So I replied " I can hear you" The caller hangs up.
Luckily I did not answer to his first reply "Yes", because the caller then using the recording of your "Yes" is a way to sign you up to all kinds information you do not want or asked for.
Obviously those who have a telephone preference service in place this caller would not get through but I receive a number of unknown numbers from genuine organisations and people.
