What city is the following address in - xxx - the address of my home address from 20 years ago was there. Who is providing this detailed data? I'm tempted to go back and buy a bunch of other stuff to see if it happens again.

holee crap! Probably from credit reports which has info from home loans, car loans, credit cards, etc. It's upsetting to know all that detailed info on individuals is out there to anyone willing to pay for a report agency subscription. Why do they need to ask you all that personal stuff anyways just for buying computer parts? That's some scary sh*t.
