Accidentally called back scam caller

I was waiting for delivery from Walmart, and I saw that I missed a phone call. Since I live in a pretty unsafe area, I immediately called back the number to make sure my package was delivered. However, the minute I heard a man speaking Hindi, I almost dropped my phone and the guy on the other side of the line hang up. I was so stupid for not checking the number before calling.

I did not tell him anything except “Hello?” but I am still worried. Will they hack my phone or get access to my emails linked to my phone number?

​

Thank you

  1. They’ll probably keep calling you since you let them know your number is active. But you shouldn’t worry because that’s the last thing that may happen.

    All you did was confirm that your phone number is live. They’re not going to “hack” it, but you are probably going to get a lot more calls, since the line is known to have a human attached.

    There’s literally no good reason to answer an unknown number. Even in your scenario, if it was a driver calling, he would leave a message. I haven’t answered an unknown number in years, and my life is better for it.
