Beware phone call scams
A warning has been issued over a new phone call scam.
Police say people should remain vigilant when answering the phone to any number they don't recognise.
And if the caller asks 'can you hear me?' the advice is to hang up straight away.
The scam, which uses voice signatures to try and charge you for products or services that you've never used, has been a major one in the US and experts expect it to turn up on this side of the pond very soon.
If you try to disagree with them, they will then play back their recording of you saying 'yes' and threaten to take legal action if you don't pay up.
The scammers can also use your voice recording to authorise a stolen credit card.
If you are asked ‘Can you hear me?’ when you’ve picked up the phone, hang up or just don’t pick up at all if you don’t recognise the number.
And if you do think you may have been targeted, you’re advised to contact your bank immediately.
