By continuing to listen to this message, you acknowledge that you are [unintelligible text here]. There will now be a three second pause in this message. This is Sharon Smith at Astra Business Services attempting to collect a debt.
I've had the same phone number for 19 years. These folks are claiming that the fact that my voice mail did not disconnect them proves that I am the made-up person they claim owes them money. I'm ignoring them.

Sounds more like a scam than an honest mistake by a legitimate collection agency.

Here in Japan there are scam artists who just cold call people with various ploys to get you to send them money.
