Pressing '1' does two things.

First, it often passes you through to the live agent (robo-callers are paid even less so they don't waste money until the think they've caught a live one).

Second, and the much worse part:   you have confirmed to them an active and viable phone number to call back with their other warnings (and sell, probably more lucrative).

It's like (foolishly) clicking "remove me from mailing list" on SPAM.
