    Any way you could zonk me out and make me think I'
    I have been with Commission Junction / Ring Revenue for a few years now. never made much money with it, only $50 every few months.

    Last week some flower company i'm not connected with started advertising a phone number that happens to be the number to my outdoor (camping/hiking) company. I'm guessing they got one digit off, or something. I got $100 in one day, and now I'm getting about $10 every other day from their mistake.

    the people stay on the phone for the required time, I'm guessing they are going to adjust the minimum time to pay out. Maybe they are actually converting to sales, I don't know.

    I am approved with 60 companies, and have a limit of 5 numbers per company. I'm getting about 100 calls a week total now.
    Don't want to loose the account, should I do anything, or leave it alone.

    How do you know its a flower company? If people are mis-dialing or they are promoting the wrong number that has nothing to do with you. If they are staying on the line and not just hanging up then something is going on that is peaking their interest. I see nothing wrong with this and would be very happy if something that this happened to me.
