LIBERTY, Mo. (KSHB) – Sharon Kosa of Liberty, Missouri was expecting a call from the doctor, and answered an unknown number with an 816 area code.
“The female called says “Is this Mrs. Kosa?” and I said yes and immediately when I said yes I was like, and they hung up,” said Kosa.
Kosa immediately regretted answering “yes”, remembering that it’s all part of a scam called “can you hear me now?”
Con-artists will ask you a question to get a “yes” answer. In most cases, they will record the “yes” part and edit it to make it sound like you authorized a major purchase.
