    Oh yeah it works if your friend can act when s/he’s on the phone. But they’d probably suspect something if it was all to be completely positive. Just make it between a mix of neutral and positive feedback about you

    Perfectly possible and you may get away with it. If they check and find out they may/will dismiss you.
