There is a new problem with homeless folks, and it's called phrogging.
Phrogging is similar to squatting, but instead of someone trying to claim the land as their own, these folks secretly live in homes occupied by the homeowner.
The term phrogging comes from these folks hopping from one house to another to avoid detection.
Thinking about this is scary. It's become such a problem, there was a horror movie recently released about phrogging called I See You, and it will get under your skin.
