This is so true, I don't know how they do it, but the caller id comes up blank with them- drives me nuts or I would have reported them last year.

Either blank caller id or spoofed. And i cannot for the life of me remember the term for this. I actually watched people doing this before.

Leverage Connections will call you with a recorded message that says they're calling about your credit card, and to push 1. If you fall for that and push the button, you're connected to a commission-only employee who's been told to hang up immediately at the first sign of critical thinking. This includes trying to finish the sentence, "Do not call me again."
dang! and i thought the company i worked for was bad but thats horrible that they hang up at the first sign of critical thinking, and commissions only pay thats really bad i at least made$5.50/hr plus commission.

sounds like there doing a double scam
