What I might have done would be to have played with their head a little, by 
pretending like I thought it was a legitimate station but I just didn't copy 
all of the call sign, and asked for a repeat:

"ABC station, I didn't get your prefix.  Please repeat your call"

or "Question mark ABC?  Please repeat your prefix and the number in your 
call,  go ahead.
