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.
Thank you for the information. That was seriously creepy (and there was some inaccurate information).
Wow, According to them I don’t have and interest in politics and I look like a black ho!
Also it says I'm not interested in politics, so I guess I'll have to leave Free Republic.
But whitepages.com sure has.
According to them I am very successful! 800k house and 2 kids!
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.
I must be pretty stealth. They had nothing on me regarding my name or emails.
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.
Heeeee Heeeee Those of you who checked to see if you were there and you say it has not found yet ..... guess what? It just found you!
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.
They had all of my info right except they said I had a 1 Million Dollar home also.
Me too. Laughing at all the misinformation. Let it stand.
This is a riot - it says I’m not interested in politics and my house is worth $1Million.
I am SO getting off this spokeo-site!
Thanks for the heads up
Wow, it is one thing to think you are the most important being in the universe, it’s quite another to have a web site confirm it for you!
(A parody for all you Hitchhiker fans)
I gotcha beat! My house is worth a million +!
But one of my kids went away.
I never knew there were that many Fred Flinstones in the US.
Why bother...they don’t have anything right, including the city I live in.
Nothing damning on me. They have my old address from about 15 years ago and that is it. The pics are wrong and they wayyyyyy overestimated my personal wealth.
Humpf. My house is only worth $791,000.
I’m not alive.....
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.)
My last name yielded no results. Guess that’s just super top secret.
I’m living comfortably in my $million home....with my new wife....
Jeese people, don’t type your name into that.....you’re building the data base by doing so.....
Mine was wrong on almost every count, even on stuff that I haven’t made any secret of.
LOL, they got most of it wrong, I live in a million dollar house but I only make 27K a year. I have no children. As you can see, I rarely tell the truth on the internet.
It has me down under two separate names still in my ex-husband’s house. All the info is my ex’s.
They said the same about me. They have my husband as Asian and that we’ve lived in our home for 9 years, just 21 yrs off. It says I’m interested in toys.
My wife has been hiding two of the kids some where in my million plus dollar house that is in a below average area. Hey maybe the extra two kids arn’t mine.
They request even more information to be removed. I smell paranoia ripoff.
Quick removal of both listings.
This looks like an on-line invitation to ID theft!
I looked up myself and an adult daughter.
I had to check my wifes name to find mine.
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.
I don’t exist.
LOL! Are you a paid rep for that site or what?
There ain't nothing there that can't be purchased from any other "information for sale" site...........
Got a public landline phone? Forget about it! You're all over the internet........
I’m not listed there either. Then again I do not use any social networking websites (Facebook, etc.).
Thanks for the white pages link - removed that too!
Even had my MIL listed at address - she doesn’t live here.
You too! I guess with Zero in power, were all black now.
Thanks for the warning. I have removed myself and my wife. A lot of information they posted about us was incorrect. Again thanks.
They say I do not exist - - I failed my test of existential philosophy in College, perhaps that’s why.
Lousy site,just lousy.
Neighborhood: Below Average
I jus be po white trash. With a wife I didn't know I had.
