This number will ring your cellphone once in an attempt to lure you to callback, which immediately verifies that your number is a working phone - your number goes on a list that is then mass-marketed to other call centres.
Then, when you call back you reach an automated operator which will implore you to press 1 for a rep or 2 to add your phone number to the Do Not call list.
Hang up! But if you are daring or foolish enough to hang on, you'll be greeted by a live rep who will explain you gave up your number voluntarily (no you didn't - ask them what your name is)when you visited one of their reward sites and you won a $100 gift card but you have to pay a one time $9.95 fee.
