It headlines a possible phone scam and is letting you become aware of it BUT goes on to say the phone scam has never happened!!!?
They even quote Snopes (link to them at the bottom if you have never heard of them before) -
Snopes, the American fact-checking website, says it can find no instances of people yet being defrauded, and says: "The “Can you hear me?” scam for now seems to be more a suggestion of a hypothetical crime scheme than a real one that is actually robbing victims of money."
I know the Bolton News has column inches to fill but this article isn't even about a 'real' story!
What a joke!
