Hello Can You Hear Me Phone Scam

There is a scam out there using your voice against you. When you answer your phone the person on the other end says, Can you hear me? Then the reply that comes natural, if you can hear them is, Yes. This simple question and answer is another ploy to outsmart people to get what a scammer wants.

When you answered their question “Yes” they have recorded your voice for later use to get money from you for a purchase you did not make or agree to. The “Yes” they recorded on the phone will be verbal evidence and they demand payment for various things.

Click on the articles below to find out what these scams entail, how to avoid them and what to do if you think have been victimized.

How To Super Clean Your Windshield Inside and Out To Sparkle and Shine

Your windshield takes on everything, bugs, mud, snow, grime from the road on the outside but did you know that the inside of your windshield has it own grime going on everyday?

Nighttime driving gives us the best look of how dirty our windshields are. We can clean the outside with the windshield wiper and spray cleaner for a temporary fix but the inside can be a bit more challenging. Ever get into your car and you find yourself wiping down the inside constantly just to see out? Not only is this a safety hazard but annoying.

ChrisFix over at YouTube.com explains why we have a build up on the inside of our windshields and how to super clean both the inside and out and the other windows of the vehicle.

Check out these two videos to make this happen for you..
