The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of a new nationwide phone scam that has already affected one person in the area.
Police said the victim receives a phone call and the callers asks, “Can you hear me?”
It has been reported that the suspect will record the victim saying “yes” and attempt authorizing charges on a phone or utility account at the victim’s expense.
The sheriff's office added that it is never a good idea to confirm your telephone number or give personal information to callers.
