    Thinking about it, they could probably use YouTube to get recording of people saying yes.

    I doubt this would actually stand up in court. It is a bullying tactic to get the less experienced into capitulating and allowing the scammed charge. I would hope that if a scammer submitted the recording of "yes," the judge would say it the whole conversation would have to have been recorded to prove context. If the scammer tries to precede the recorded "yes" with a question regarding accepting charges, all the judge needs to ask the consumer is: "Did you really agree to this?"
