A race of smart aliens scan Earth and find human communication flying back and forth. They monitor it a while, learn our languages. Eventually they make contact. We're polite, if a bit odd, and soon they agree to come here. Travelling for years, they arrive to discover mankind has been dead for centuries. They had made first contact only with our needlessly advanced AI answerphone network.
