An oldie, but a goodie. Pick a phone number in the area that you are in, call the occupant and ask if they will be at home and then when told no, break in and rob the place.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Update, Mothers Neighbour got this call also, its a scam to To port your Home phone and Internet over you over to NBN Broadband. I am pissed as I am on the Do Not call Registry. Don't know what  Company that's doing this, as she was too embarrassed to say. But they do have your Last Bill Amount. Confirmed by my Mothers call.
