CHICAGO, ILL. (KMOX) – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is telling state residents to beware of phone call scams that attempt to record consumers saying “yes.”

Madigan issued the alert Friday. She says residents should hang up if they receive a call that starts by asking “Can you hear me?”

Scammers can use the recorded “yes” to authorize unwanted charges to credit cards or withdrawals from bank accounts.
