I answered this because it is my area code (PA).  The recorded message said that since I received this on my cell phone (it wasn't) I could press keys to accumulate points to win prizes.  It also said to wait for an operator, but the operator didn't come on, and it disconnected.
I reported it to the National Do Not Call registry.  If everyone does the same, maybe we can eliminate these annoying calls.

Reverse boycott. We can destroy their cost/benefit ratio by consuming their service.

When a company can repeatedly call with the intent of getting money their customers can repeatedly answer or call back with the intent of not giving them any. They need people to pay with as little talk as possible. They don't want to talk with people who know they are never going to pay. Be all talk and no pay. Answer when convenient. Call back. Give no information. Verify nothing. Ask as many questions as you can. Answer none.

Don't ignore/block/report them. It doesn't work. These folks want you to ignore them for as long as you can stand to or until you give them something valuable like money or information. Ignoring them is being their good customer. Sending a cease and desist is giving information. It lets them know you are still alive and remain their good customer. Their legal model is less vulnerable than their business model. Preparing to initiate unlikely individual legal battles is being their good customer.

Be their bad customer. Make them talk to you fruitlessly for as long as they can stand to or until they stop selecting you as their customer. These companies cannot spend seconds much less minutes on the phone with every person who will never send them a dime. But they don't know who that is. You do. That knowledge is power. Every second you can keep their staff on the phone will render their business less profitable giving them a reason to never call you again.

Calling will not reset your SOL. Making a partial payment will.

I like to ask general questions they should but usually won't answer. "May I have the name and address of your agent for service of process?" Calmly and slowly ask them to spell every word in the address. Read it back for verification. Control the pace. If they are rushing then politely ask them to slowly repeat. "Are you a corporation and if so in which state are you incorporated?" Repeat your questions when you don't get direct answers. When they won't answer a question ask, "Would you like to comply with the business and professions codes of your state?" That is usually the point when they hang up on me but if they say they want to comply then begin your questions again.

Repeat while you have the spare time. These folks have many victims and few operators. If everyone calls back but pays nothing the mass auto-dialer business model becomes unprofitable. Don't aide and comfort the enemy by ignoring them. Call! Have a nice long slow friendly chat! Make them hang up first.

Press 2 for Spanish.

For any business, customers who consume the most resources but don't pay (or otherwise add value) become the least desirable. Most businesses will stop (cease and desist) soliciting an undesirable customer. Those that don't stop remain knowingly vulnerable to the actions of their undesirable customers. Few companies can afford to let everyone take a piece of them whenever they want endlessly. For instance they must pay staff to answer everyone's telephone calls which can be placed at your convenience for the joy of it. Call and consume their operator time without paying or giving information. Be a bad customer. The worst customer. Inspire them to invoke their right to refuse you service by not soliciting you.

There are certainly enough victims with unlimited long distance to take down this company so ignoring/blocking seems downright Orwellian to me. Really? We're just going to passively submit and go with a block list or however we manage ignoring an endless stream of unwanted phone calls day after day? Hell no! Unite or remain conquered. Answer/return every call - become well practiced at keeping these folks on the phone - or count yourself not amongst the free.

just ten minutes ago (its now 1:57 PM Central) i recieved a call from this number ( 215- 944- 8989)... i didnt answer because i never answer unknown numbers, allowing them to leave voice mails if essential or emergency.... however when i called back less then thirty seconds after the initial end of the call ( and lack of voicemail) i recieved a recording explaining the number is not in service... when i tried AGAIN, i got a series of beeps similar to a busy signal.... on the THIRD attempt i was again told the number was not in service... i guess im at a loss to understand how a phone number that CALLS ME isnt in service.... is this the icy hand of fate trying to warn me about something (and OF COURSE i dont answer), or is it some sort of scam perpetrated by third world con men?.....after finding this site, it seems this has happened to others as well..... so has anyone discovered what the heck is going on?

Bet if you checked Spanish language results it's a phishing call of some sort, with a spoofed number it's a scam of some sort.
