If you receive a phone call from someone you don’t know asking “can you hear me,” it would be in your best interest to probably hang up.
A new scam could make you a potential victim if you answer yes because that response is recorded by fraudsters and is used to make unauthorized charges on a phone or utility bill.
According to KTLA, victims are charged because the person already knows your phone number and phone providers pass through the third-party charges.
It is advised that you check your credit card and cable statements for unknown charges if you believe you may have been a victim.
Disputes for credit card charges can be discussed with the Federal Trade Commission and phone bill disputes can be discussed with the Federal Communications Commission.Warning: file_get_contents(): https:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in /hermes/bosweb26a/b360/ipg.sbnotebookcom/wp-content/themes/goodnews5/framework/functions/posts_share.php on line 151 Warning: file_get_contents(https://plusone.google.com/_/+1/fastbutton?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cjnotebook.com%2Fget-a-wrong-number-asking-can-you-hear-me-police-say-you-better-hang-up%2F): failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /hermes/bosweb26a/b360/ipg.sbnotebookcom/wp-content/themes/goodnews5/framework/functions/posts_share.php on line 151
