Automated and recorded phone solicitation is illegal in California
and the majority of states. I'd be curious to see if they have

Pacbell has a Call Annoyance hotline at: 1800-698-7223.
If you get a spam call from these guys in California, make sure you report it.
They *love* cracking down on this type of thing.
