Could this be a scam?

A couple of wannabe college students showed up at my door asking if I would be interested in a $1,500 home security system and lifetime service in exchange for posting a security company sign in my front yard. They left me a card to fill out that asked for all my crucial information, including social security number and date of birth, that had boxes to check for accepting, or rejecting, the promotional offer. The card they left didn't have the name of the alarm company on it, a website address, phone number, nada.
What do the guys get out of it? The company pays them $500 toward their tuition for every customer they sign up.
What does the company get out of it? Supposedly, free lawn signeage/advertising.
