Koodo keeps calling...for nothing?

I keep getting a call every week (between 7-10pm EST). It comes up as 'Koodo' on my caller ID (1.866.995.6636). Every time I answer there is a long pause (assuming this is an automated dial and connected to the next rep in the que). The person asks if I am me, by name, and I confirm that yes, I am me, then they hang up. They have never say anything else. I tried asking why they are calling me but *click* call is disconnected on their end. At this point I'm rather expecting them to eventually ask me if my refrigerator is running. What the heck Koodo?

There is a chance its a spoofed number. There was a scam going around where someone would call and ask you if you were you and then record you saying yes. Here's more information... https://www.google.com/amp/globalnews.ca/news/3221328/can-you-hear-me-dont-say-yes-in-new-telephone-scam/amp/ .not saying that's what's happening but to stop this you may want to contact koodo and ask if they are calling you and why. You can send them a Facebook message or a direct tweet to ask.
