Advice wanted: "Unknown Number" repetitively calling...

So I pick up. They want my boyfriend, Ken. 
They can't even seem to pronnounce it - and honestly, how hard is it to pronnounce "Ken"? Furthermore, I say he isn't here - he is not, he works until 6pm or later. They hang up, and do not tell me who they are, who they are calling for, or a call back number or anything.

Secondly, the phone number they are calling is one set up through Skype, so as far as I know it does not have a social security number attached to it, so companies could not find us through that for debt collection.

Futhermore, the only debt we have is 300 owed to a bank a state over, and that has been passed so deep into collections I hardly would think this could be them, especially since they do not have this phone number, and this phone number is not traced to anything except our paypal and our bank's debit card.

They are calling me every 5-10 minutes!

What the heck do I do? They call from 7am to 5pm.  I cannot think of one legal reason they would be calling. Could they just be telemarketers with a vengeance?

I mean seriously.

Credit Card Security

OK, this made me laugh.
Yesterday I was craving a banana split and my roomate was headed out so i asked her to pick up one. I had her grab my wallet to pay, told her if there wasnt enough cash use the card. Obviously i trust my roommate. Now I have written See ID on my Sig Slip along with my signature at a failed attempt at security, very few places look and then so many more have it setup where you swipe your own. So very rarely does this matter when i have her use my card. 

This day however is special as Dairy Queen of all places looks and sees that it says "See ID"  so they ask my roomate for ID . . . So she hands them my ID. They then hand her the slip, she signs the slip and the person hands her my card, my ID and the food. I have long ago given up and stopped getting upset on people not checking, but seriously, this is a new level of special. 

Granted im not upset, more flabergasted then anything. and i had a deliscious banana split, but the only logic we can think of is my roomates boyfriend was who they thought I was. still, then she signed the slip, but whatever.

Landlord woes

A couple months ago, I posted about my boyfriend's awful landlord that got trashed and tried to molest me (no, I don't actually expect anyone to remember this). For this reason, I have absolutely no pity for any of the medical problems the landlord has gone through.

I knew I should have taken pics of the room as we were leaving, to prove no damages, but the landlord had said he was giving us the check. grrr. We're going to try to call him tomorrow, but he's usually either drunk or hopped up on pain meds. The chances of catching a lucid moment are slim to none.
