I'm wondering if this is a scam?
My husband has started getting annoyingly frequent calls to his cell phone from a number in Rhode Island. When he answers it, a robo-voice says "We have an important message for (and gives a name of some person we have never heard of)." It then says, "If you are (random person), please press one." It does not give any other option. My husband tried just sitting on the line, waiting to see if he'd get the chance to state that he is not Random Person, and nor does he know Random Person, but the call cut off. So then DH suggested that if it happened again, maybe he should just press 1, just to try and get someone real on the phone to clear up the mistake, but I told him that I'm afraid that it might be a bill collector call or a scam call, and that pressing 1 (which would suggest "Yes, I am Random Person") would only create more problems. I suggested that he just block the phone number.
