They called three of my four offered contacts: two simple long-time social contacts, and one long-time business contact. They didn't bother calling the county detective, who was the first one on the list. I figured that they assumed if I was happy enough listing a long-time LEO as a reference, I wasn't expecting him to be anything but positive. Who knows. Maybe they used the Who Should We Call Ouiji And Dart Board set at the LD.
