    immediately get an email from them saying they are sorry to see you go. That makes me kind of nervous.

    ok so my little elderly aunt got a call the other day but they hung up before she could answer.
    on the caller id was her name and number.
    apparently telemarketers use this tactic thinking that you'll be more likely to pick up, being curious as to how that could be.
    also, it seems to be a way around blacklists used by call-screening services.
    fuckers don't give up.
