There is always something…am I right? There is another new scam I had not heard of before, and it involves Google Voice.  Google Voice is a number that works on your devices to make and receive calls.

This scam is primarily likely to happen when you are selling something online. The buyer will reach out to buy what you are selling, ask for your phone number, and then, according to WGME, a message was sent from the buyer to the seller asking for them to send a verified Google Voice code because so many things are line are scams. BUT THAT ASK IS REALLY THE SCAM.  

If you were to follow through with this, the scammer gets your number to scam others under your name.

If you do fall prey to this…you can do something to recover. You can reclaim your number, and here are all the directions from Google.
