    Yep. I shared two classes in my junior year of high school with a dude who had the exact same first, middle, and last name as me. I know of a few others who share the same first and last as me.

    No, I don't think anyone shares my namesake...

    Now, I know a lot of other people who were born on the same date as me. Moreso than others, I believe.

    There are 3 other of me living in the area. One of them ran for public office but never gave his phone number to the media. I used to get calls from newspapers for quotes and interviews. One day I decided to have some fun and gave a really strange answer to a reporters question. He quickly determined I was not the congressional candidate he thought I was!!

    The kick returner for the Seattle Seahawks is named Josh Scobey. The place kicker for the Jacksonville Jaguars is named Josh Scobee. They played each other in week one this past season. Josh Scobee kicked off to Josh Scobey. Cool, eh?

    There was a Jr. High Art teacher in my school who had the same name. With the same spelling, which is a bit unusual.

    There was a College and Arena league Football QB with my name, so googling myself is useless. Stories about him flood out everything else.

    There are like 6 or 7 people with my name in the US. I went to Google myself and found them. I email a couple of them, and never heard back from them. Guess they didn't think it was as cool as I did.

    and i'm not too happy about it either ...

    believe it or not , this guy has the same first , second and last name as me ...
    { his middle name is spelled differently ... }

    seems he owed bill collectors some money , and they contacted me
    by U.S. mail , saying they were going to prosecute me .

    anyway , i found this guy in the phone book , and after a face to face meeting ,
    he apologized and took care of the bill right away ,
    and he really seemed like an honest person , a nice guy ...
    ... end of story , or so i thought ....

    ok , fastforward four or five years , and i've gotten three phone calls
    from bill collectors in Atlanta , Ga. , who say this guy has recently { two weeks ago }
    used my name and phone number to rack up some pretty high bills ...

    *** ? it's a different state with different area codes ...

    Texas has a No Call list { and yes , i'm on it } so these guys have politely been informed
    that the next phone call i get from them , i will promptly turn them over to the attorney general .

    sorry for the rant , but this really pisses me off ...
