Odd result

I took the Y-DNA 67 marker test and got back the results today. Oddest thing. My surname is not Cameron, and at the 12 marker level, I have 14 different people descended from a Scottish ancestor with the last name Cameron. They all drop off after that marker level. I also have six different people descended from Camerons on Family Finder - all whom are projected from 3 - 5 cousins range. Is it a series of odd coincidences that I should disregard? What do you think?

If you don't mind, what haplogroup did you get placed in?

I wouldn't try to read too much into the Y-12 matches, but it is a bit curious about the Cameron name also showing up in the Family finder matches.

Thanks,

Jack
