I cannot imagine too many opponents calling you on this. It is different from touching a piece and trying to change your mind surely?
people usually do it to indicate their resignation
If it was accidental, then you cannot be complelled. See post #3.
If accidental and on your own time, there is no penalty. If on your opponent's move, there may be a time penalty.
If intentional, you've resigned.
