Normally I respond to these with some long winded conversation, ask them info, ignore everything they say, ask more dumb questions, try to keep them on the phone as long as possible so they aren't harassing other people and wasting time/money on someone who would NEVER BUY UNSOLICITED GOODS.
Thing is this seems to be a scam where they are trying to test/verify phone numbers. So any response seems to be a bad response.
ALWAYS NUMBERS LIKE THIS FIND THEIR WAY TO MY CELL PHONE..DON'T ANSWER SCAMS
I got this call as well on my (Rogers) cell phone. I don't answer any numbner I don't recognise anyways - these calls are just annoying . . .

Today at 4:28 i got a call from 270-982-9991 and it was asking to dial 1 for winning the prize but I did not dial any however I disconnected my cell phone. It seems as scam.
To "Concerned"....wow, just wow. It was obviously a joke. Steve is being sarcastic, i'm more concerned about you lol
hmmm Steve......did you really give out your information???? are you that naive?? NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR BANKING INFO OR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!!! IT'S A SCAM!!!
Concerned... Jul 20th, 2009
I answered the number and won $5,000!!!!!!! All I had to do was give them my banking info and social security number. They are in the process RIGHT NOW of transferring my money from a bank in Nigeria!! I'm just so excited!!
"As a preferred Rogers [cellphone service] customer, you have received a special prize.. please press 1 to claim your prize." Then it disconnected after 5 seconds.

i have had the exact same experience, numerous calls from places in the States. i do not understand where they got my cell # from
Got a call from this number. I did'nt bother picking up. I ignore calls like these as they are usually telemarketing calls from where ever they choose to call me or bounce their calls from.
Phoned me and told me i won a prize i hung up after that... why the hell would i win something from USA?
tried calling the number back but it ust said the number had been disconnected, i missed the call by the way
called me and it was a lady talking in Spanish.. gonna try calling 407-856-0115

They called me and the recording translated: "We are going to get Obama for letting all the black drug dealers operate with immunity while he is cracking down on the drug cartels in Columbia and Afghanistan. Have a nice eternity Mr.Son of the Anti-Christ."
missed the call, called back, and it said it was disconnected.. but.. how on earth did they get my CELL phone number?
They called me and horrible recording, listened, dont speak spanish, hung up ASAP...what is this about?????? how can I stop this from happening?
If you keep receiving a call in Spanish please call 407-856-0115
(travelandtours.com) I called and asked them to remove my business phone number from their list. I was promised it would be handled same day. If they do not stop then I will start calling them every 15 minutes until they do. If everyone would do the same maybe they will know how it feels.
Unsolicited calls in Spanish from an automated machine. My fourth in the past few weeks. PLEASE STOP!!!
Lousy connection but it was definetly spanish and badly recorded. I Don't speak spanish so i have no idea what they were selling.
Automated recording in Spanish.
called my cell phone! I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize.
I just received a call that was an automated recording in Spanish. When I called back I got a recording that the number was disconnected. I believe that the disconnection recording is not real because I listened to the entire thing and my cell phone would usually automatically hang up at the end of the recording, this time it did not. My phone thought it was calling in to voice mail.
Received blank v/m from this phone number on cell phone but I have also received phone calls from other unknown numbers where no one says anything or hangs up and when I return the call to see who it is the phone number is disconnected. I don't get it

Had a call from this number in our Caller ID. We never answered so don't have any further info. We were just wondering who it was since we have no contacts in Kentucky. From other reports here, seems it's a nuisance number?
didn't answer, no message
I didn't answer and left no message.
Called my cell phone 2 times a couple of minutes apart. Call ID said Kentucky , I did not answer. no message was left.
I answered it, it is a recorded voice, I hung it directly.

Got a call from these people on my cell, I'm on the DNC it gets bad when people don't obey the law.
Call with no message even though my number is on the do not call list. Very annoying!
(www.travelandtours.com)and ask them to remove you from the list. They ADMITTED calling and they are also operating under other numbers like 512-500-9898
. The Spanish recording says to press 1 to claim a prize and then you are connected to the agency. If you were to ask them to remove you from the list they would just hang up on you b/c they know you can't call back (they did it to me). But now you have a name and number.
They use a company name "travel and Tours Marketing" and "Super Promociones USA".Owner's name is Luis Arce (so they say).
There was a lawsuit against them and you can read it here http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=104&STORY=/www/story/02-14-2006/000-428-1905
Recorded Spanish voice telling me to press 1 to claim the prize I had just won.

Automated message - poss spanish... I hung up on it... in attempt to reverse look-up, found this website... pretty cool!
I hit option 1 and I got some spanish chick on the phone. She did speak english after I asked her why she called me 3 times. She said I was in some sweepstakes for spanish speaking people. I don't speak spanish. I told her to remove me from her list. And that is was illegal for her to call my cell phone. then she told me it wasn't illegal and hung up. I hate her...
