Weird site. Nothing on my husband and me. My daughter and sonIL will be surprised that their $200K house is valued by these folks at $1million.

Heh.

Thank you for the information. That was seriously creepy (and there was some inaccurate information).

According to it I live in a below average neighborhood in a million-plus dollar house. I must be the lord of all of the serfs who live in the hovels near me.

Also it says I'm not interested in politics, so I guess I'll have to leave Free Republic.

I just put my name in for fun and nearly all of it was wrong. I think it guesses on stuff. I have posted a gazillion things on the web and it listed nothing. Had my home at over a million dollars but my neighborhood as below average. I live in a pretty nice neighborhood, but tell me, if my house was worth a million, my neighborhood certainly wouldn’t be below average.
Also said I wasn’t interested in politics. That’s a joke. The only thing it had right was my address and name. Everything else was pure fabrication.

Nothing on me and I have a listed phone number.

I was fortunate to be given a nickname early in life that has no connection to my real first name. All my friends and family have referred to me by my nickname and I use my real name only for professional reasons. My facebook is under my nickname but my phone number, lease, credit cards, etc. use my real name. Works out well in this era where nothing is private anymore.

I got my name and husband’s off spokeo but it took a bit-you have to find ‘contact’ and it is not easily seen, at least for me it was not, then you type your request and send it and it gets info from you and sends to your email a link you copy and paste and go to and then it deletes your information. I am glad for the reminder, I might as well check and make sure they did not re-enter our names and information.

I ran my name through (no way there is a duplicate - very small family with most uncommon last name) and found out that I am an early 40s asian living in a 1 million dollar home. They had my fax number right. Everything else was way off.

Hey my house just appreciated the same way. Also see that I am still living with my ex from whom I was divorced in 1994.

Hopefully as people see the lack of reliability of their own data, they will not put any credence into anyone else’s. (I did put in for mine to be removed - thanks for the notice.)

I was listed twice ... once on a house my brother used to own that I sold for him.. once for a house my parents used to live at 20 years ago.

Quick removal of both listings.

This looks like an on-line invitation to ID theft!

Get removed.

I’m confused. It says:

* Reads about world news & politics
* Is not interested in politics

If I’m not interested in politics, why do I read about it?

They’ve got a bunch of other things that are screwy, too.
