I am the one who wrote that. I came here to add this theory to the thread, and here it is already posted. Weird I've done a little research (very little) into the job of servicing foreclosures, and it does appear that lenders/law firms rely on contracted people, and they often just get people through Craigslist. Anyway, I'd really like to read others' opinions of my idea. And one thing I left out was that he was there on a Sunday, which is odd for a devoutly religious person to be working on, but he was in need of income. But Sunday is a popular day for finding people trying to evade police, car repossession, lawsuit notice delivery..etc, because people are at home on Sundays. More than any other day of the week, Sunday is just the day most people have off, or will be with family. This fact is common knowledge among people whose job it is to find people that don't want to be found.
