Wrong Numbers

Several months back, I came home from work one day to find a message from what sounded like an elderly lady on my answering machine talking about she had gotten a parking ticket and how she shouldn't have since she was on a limited income. I looked at my caller ID, it was from Los Angeles,California...
Yesterday afternoon, the phone rings, I look at the caller ID, but don't answer, because it says "Los Angeles,CA"...a foreign sounding guy leaves a message on my answering machine leaving his phone number and saying "I would like to contest a citation".
Only thing I can figure, is my number must be really close to a city court phone number in Los Angeles,California. But what I can't figure is how they are getting my number, being they would have to dial an area code for long distance before they would reach here. I did a search of area codes in the Los Angeles area online, and none were close to looking like "318"!

Another Thing That Irks Me...

Almost two or three times a month, someone knocks on my door asking about that old house a couple of houses up the road from mine, that was remodeled last summer, but still remains empty. Someone just showed up asking was it for rent! How the hell should I know? I don't know who owns the place now! I used to know the old lady that lived there up until she passed away about 4 years ago, but I have no idea who owns the place now! Wish whoever does own it would put up a damn sign or something on the place! Getting tired of being asked about it!
