My phone rings. Person says I called them

Contributor

My phone rings. Person says I called them

All of a sudden I'm getting incoming calls that the person on teh other end says I called them.  All have "out of area" for Caller ID on my land line.  I've gotten 4 so far today.

 

 To be clear:

1.  My phone rings

2.  I pick up

3.  Person on teh other end says their phone rang and they just picked up.  They were not making a phone call.

4.  I don't know any of the people.  

5.  I wasn't using the phone or even in the same room, when it rang.  

6.  My  Comcast call log shows them as incoming calls with no phone number, not even "out of area."

 

If this is some sort of prank or scam, I can't see what the payoff is.

Maybe, but why does it ring on *both* ends?
