I had someone over last night who mentioned a business called lease busters. I had never heard of it before and have never searched for any services like that. For the first time, an ad for lease busters showed up on my Facebook page. My laptop was in the room but turned off. Should I be worried?

It most likely is a geographically-targeted ad and probably nothing to be concerned about.

Having said that, do you have any internet-enabled devices, like the Amazon Echo, Google Alexa, or an internet-connected TV? It has been demonstrated that those can be hacked and listen when they're not supposed to. Recently TV manufacturer Vizio agreed to a multi-million dollar settlement as they were collecting viewership information and selling it to third parties without their TV owner's knowledge.

It does seem deeply weird -- but remember that the complete absence of any extremely-unlikely coincidence is actually far more unlikely than any such coincidence itself. IOW, Weird Shit does happen.
