I came home form work the last Thursday and Friday to a full answering machine with messages for a person named Julian Sweet (I don’t know who that is and his name is nowhere near my name). “Julian” apparently was online early Thursday and made MANY online requests for various services – home based businesses, auto/home/health insurance, travel packages, etc. and left my phone number in the request. We’re talking hundreds of requests. In the last three days I have had over 90 phone calls from different businesses seeking “Julian.” Today I started receiving mail for “Julian”. One of the items was for a new home owner’s insurance policy quote – and based upon the details in the proposal, this person knew my address, the year the home was built, a correct value, when the wiring was last checked… the whole nine yards.
Aside from being irritating and annoying, should I be worried about this? A friend of mine said that there are people who can with “one click” enter my information online and it is sent to hundreds of companies and it will look like I want their services. Is this true? And does anyone know how to make this stop, aside from changing my phone number and moving?
Thanks for your help…
I have lived at this address and had this phone number for ten years. I tried to think if there was anyone I had angered recently but I am drawing a blank. I don’t really have “enemies”… it’s crazy.
