This has been discussed many times.  Search the archives. 

If you are using standard POTS lines, then Asterisk sees the call as 
being answered immediately.  You'll need to ask for the user to press 
some key to hear the message.  Loop it three or more times.  If nobody 
presses the key, hangup.

If you are on a digital service such as a PRI, then you'll have call 
supervision and this won't be an issue.
