On Friday, my mother received a piece of certified mail from a Baton Rouge law office on my behalf. Upon further inspection, it turned out not to be for me at all....it was addressed to "Eddie Miller a/k/a Edward Calloway" with my parents' address on it. So, being thoroughly confused and wondering if someone has stolen my identity, I called the lawyer. Me: "Yes, I received a certified letter from you, but I am not known as "Eddie Miller" and I have never gone by "Calloway" at any time. I think this is a mistake." Her: "Okay. So your name is "Edward Lawrence Miller, yet?" Me: "No, I am Edward Lee Miller". Her: "Okay...let me just...." *typing noises* Her: "And you have never gone by Calloway?" Me: "No ma'am. I don't even live at that address anymore." Her: "Well okay then, there's nothing you need to worry about. We could not find Mr. Calloway, so we sent it to every Edward Miller listed. You can open it if you'd like, but if it doesn't pertain to you, just throw it away." Me: Okay...thanks.... So...a lawyer just told me that.... a. she could not find her client so she just sent mail to everyone with the same name in the same city and b. I could open a certified letter meant for someone else. So, those of you in the law profession.....surely this kind of thing isn't par for the course, right?
