If I'm not rare, then when I'm duped by someone the first question I ask 
myself is "Did he think he was working somebody else?  Was the timing just 
a little off, or the frequency, or can I hear someone he might have worked 
instead of me."  Sometimes, admittedly, I don't ask that when the first guy 
dupes me, but if I suddenly get a flurry, especially on the high bands...
