Curious Problem – People are applying to job postings, then not responding

Are others having this issue? It's frustrating as all get-out. We've had people apply for an open job, only to go silent. This has even happened after initial phone screen where the applicant spoke with our HR person, indicated they were interested, and then went completely silent/unresponsive. Is there something going on that others may have insight into? It doesn't seem like an "I need to show evidence of job search for my unemployment" situation, as at least according to the resumes, most of these folks are apparently already employed. It just wastes a bunch of our time and I'm wondering if others know what I'm talking about and maybe have an idea of what's going on?
