I have not called the number or faxed any info to him/her, but I have found that the company is not listed with the Better Business Buereau, according to Google the physical location is a Dunkin Donuts, and I also have this lovely bit http://callowl.com/lookup/6179399040/ reporting that the company phone number is a cell phone.
I would be greatly appreciative if this person does not walk away with any innocent's information.
