Yep it's phone spam!
They reply on you having callerID and then calling back, to be told you
have won a price and to call a 1900 number etc etc.
I have actually started getting them on my mobile - the one connected to my
server for sending SMS messages! It's really funny! I should SMS them and
make them call my 1900 number!
We've also had a recording of short ring calls on our landline the last
month quite regularly. If we answer it, no one is there, if we don't
answer it, it only rings about 3 times, enough for CID to register!
Of Course our landline isn't for voice calls, but I grab it sometimes :)
