And who the hell is Mike, anyway?

For the past five days, I've been getting the same nuisance phone call three to four times a day: Phone rings, I answer. Male says "Hello, could I speak with Mike please?" and the line goes dead before I can get a word in edgewise. Caller has a vaguely Scandinavian accent, with the same inflection every damn time. I suspect it's a recording. What the hell is going on?

Last-caller-ID returns a number with the 749 area code, which as far as I can tell doesn't exist. I've tried all the links mentioned here
, but no luck.
What benefit could anyone conceivably derive from phoning and playing a recorded message at me?
FWIW, these calls are not in the least intimidating. Just odd.
