Next time you answer your phone and are unsure of who is calling you, then you need to hang up the phone immediately.

especially if they call you and ask ‘Can you hear me?’ because if you say ‘Yes’ you’ve just fallen for a scam.

Not just any scam a major one that has already swept across the US and is now hitting the UK

Police here are now warning people to remain vigilant when answering the phone or you could unknowingly become the next target.

How does the scam work?

Criminals are using your voice signatures to try and charge you for products and services that you’ve never used.

If you disagree with them they’ll play back the recording of your own voice saying ‘yes’ They’ll then threaten to take legal action against you if you don’t pay.

What else are they using the recording for?

Now that they have your voice they are using it to authorise the payments of stolen credit cards and other transactions over the telephone.

What happens if I’m targeted?

Contact your bank immediately, they may have already stolen your identity now just need your voice to complete the fraud.

If they don’t already have your bank details they’ll request them when the are making threats of legal action against you.

Is it all a load of nonsense? 

A number of websites have reported that the scam is a load of rubbish and that you can’t make a payment with your voice, that is correct. 

It you are only focusing on that aspect of the Scam you are completely missing the point of the scam and will fall for it. 

With this scam what is happening is they play your agreement back to you and threaten you with legal actions for products and services you have agreed to ‘forcing’ you to make a payment. 

This scam will mainly impact vulnerable people. 

We will see a huge increase of these calls to our phone numbers as the scam sweeps across the U.K.

We thought you best know before you get the call.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
