Strange Recorded Call. Calls me. Hangs up.

Ok, so I’m used to the occasional obnoxious marketing call…in the past year, usually having something to due with a nameless company trying to sell you a warranty for your car or consolidate your debt. However, for the past 3 weeks or so, I’ve gotten 5 or 6 identical calls of a very odd nature.

Phone rings. I pick up. Short pause. Then a recorded male voice says, “Due to a technical problem we’re not able to speak with you personally. Thank You. Goodbye.”  And then it hangs up on me.

Is some companies phone system software going haywire? Is there something malicious hidden in the call? I can’t figure it out, and so far no one I’ve spoken to has gotten these calls. So here’s my question to you … if anyone has had this recording call them and hang up please post a comment. Any idea what these are?
