Default a very weird phonecall from a 402 area code anyone familular with this???

i get a phone call from a 402 area code. now i dont know anyone who would call me from that number other than paypal, i just started a new account...i only sold 5 items in one week and have only 459dollars.... and its like paypal is calling to verify if my phone number is legit???
i get the call and i hear in the background keyboard typing as you normally would when connected to an agent, but than after a second an automated system speaking in spanish talks jibberish for 6 seconds and hangs up on me...
i call back and all it says is thanks for calling us back if you would like to be removed from our telemarketing service just press one and than hangs up.... doesent say the company name or anything??? has anyone experienced this before? is this paypal ****ing with me???? i only sold 5 items and they are acting like im a millionaire to freeze my money wow.

402 area code is Nebraska and if not mistaken, ebay/paypal is in California

Where is area code 402?

I did a search on Google for the number. There's a lot of websites talking about it. Looks like junk.

Anyone that gets a call from a questionable number can run it through whocalled.us which is the most useful site I've found for checking this type of thing out.

Enjoy

PS: I ran it back to this site: REGALO - A Gift Experience

Which claims to be down for maintenance. It's a false front to harvest data for mailing lists and to sell your info to spam lists. By answering your phone, they now know the number exists and isn't dead or disconnected. In about a week, you will probably get flooded with car warranties, life insurance for your pet goldfish, poly-alloy shoelaces, remanufactured dilithium crystals, and enzyte.

You are just paranoid. Plain and simple.
To break it down Telemarketers (workers) get a list of numbers that is given to them that they have to call. Some are just lazy and don't feel like talking and just dial the number and wait 10 to 15 seconds and then hang up. The company have phone logs/records to make sure they do their jobs and this is how they get around it. Sometimes they stay on the phone and wait for you to say "HELLO" like 5 or 6 times and then they will respond base on the fact that you stayed on the phone for that long and didn't hang up. This is a sign that you are the type of person that will listen to the FULL sales pitch they have to give.

This info is from my experience as a customer. I usually stay on and let them pitch their sales script all they want and then say "NO THANKS" and Hang up.:D

Paypal and Ebay doesn't do that. They will leave a message if you don't answer the phone.
