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 :)
