Submission + - A new form of click fraud?

John Jorsett writes: "Lately I've been getting a lot of calls from various outfits saying that I'd filled out an online form asking for more information on sleep apnea, college financial aid, etc. At first I thought that I had pissed off some telemarketer and this was revenge harassment. Now as the calls have continued for weeks with a widening array of solicitors, I'm beginning to think that it's a new form of click fraud. If these companies are paying for these leads, my name and number might be being sold as phony online submissions. Are any other Slashdotters experiencing this?"
