Caller stated his name was Josh and asked "can you hear me OK"? I asked "Are you a robot"? And he acted confused and asked again about if I could hear him. Each time I said I just needed to know if he was a real person and he could not answer the question but kept asking questions to get a "yes" answer.

I had read the article about the phone scam with people asking if you can hear them. Just a minute ago I received a phone call and the guy said, "hi my name is josh with the customer service department, can you hear me okay?" He never said what business he was with, which automatically made me skeptical. The only thing I said was what business are you with? He wouldn’t answer me so I just hung up. I posted a Facebook post saying not to answer that number that it’s a scam. The number is from cherryville, NC. This number also called my fiancé, lol, but she’s not dumb either

I answered my cell phone. The person on the other line said, "hi, this is Josh, can you hear me?" I hesitantly replied, "Yes" then I heard I won I trip to Disney & I recalled the news report with your voice being recorded stating yes and then the scammer authorizes spending from your bank, credit cards, etc. I am very concerned & don’t know how to protect myself from this happening now.

Received call from Wichita, KS. Caller said "This is Josh, can you hear me okay?" I said, "yes I can." Then I immediately remembered hearing about a scam where people call and ask "can you hear me" so they can record your voicing saying "yes." He went on about me being selected to receive some Disney trip or something. I said I wasn’t interested and hung up. Now I’m worried.

He said, "Hi, this is Josh! Can you hear me?" I said yes. He said, "you’ve qualified to win a vacation" and I hung up immediately, realizing this may have been the scam I recently heard about. I’m not sure what they actually do with my "yes" reply, but I was told by our police dept to keep an eye on my bank account.

Josh asked if I can here him OK, I said "YA. What do you want". He offered a trip and I hung up. What a pain. I wish the phone company’s would do something about these calls.

This call came on my cell phone and I answered because the number was a local area code. It was the " Can you hear me" one from Josh. I believe I may have said "yes" instinctively, but as soon as I realized it was a recorded call, I hung up. I have checked my credit cards and so far there is no unauthorized activity.
