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.

How can I stop someone from changing my gmail password?

Gmail security: Someone keeps trying to recover, or change, the password for my gmail account. I'd previously set my gmail recovery option to send me an SMS, and I'm getting a lot of SMSes saying, "Your Google Account recovery code is: ... If you did not request this code, you can safely ignore this message". I've already changed my secret question to be really obscure, but what else should I do to protect my account? Every couple of weeks, I get bombarded with SMSes because someone is trying to access my account. Can I temporarily disable the recovery option? I'm just worried that someone might guess the answer to my secret question by brute force or some other means.
