Type of a scam Phishing

Received a call today on my cell phone where a lady said she was a realtor and that they had sold many houses in our area (which houses are selling like hot cakes in our area) and asked if I was on my street to which I said "yes" then she hung up. I never answer calls I am not familiar with, but I was in the car and saw the 512 number so did for some reason 🙁 After she hung up I became very suspicious obviously so googled away and found out about the saying "yes" to phone call scam, where they record you saying "yes" and that can be used for fraudulent charges on your cable/internet, phone or credit cards that they might already have access to. Needless to say I have called all my cards/businesses etc. to make them aware and I am filing a report with the as that was also suggested. Lesson learned here which I already knew is don’t answer calls in this day and age to any numbers you are not familiar with at all.

Have had 2 phone calls in 2 weeks asking first if they were talking to me. I would say yes. Then telling me they were from a realtor in the area and asking if I was interested in selling my house. The first time I said No and hung up. The second time, after saying yes, they started saying they were from a realtor and I hung up in mid sentence.

I don’t know what you call this type of scam other than the person asked if this is "____ ____" and I said YES. Now they are using this scam instead of the can you hear me scam.

So, when someone calls and asks for us by name, I guess now we can’t say YES.
