You may want to check out http://www.spokeo.com to see what personal information is there. Spokeo.com is a new online phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB or web, your approx credit score, home value, income, age, etc. You can remove yourself by first searching for yourself on their site to find the URL of your page and going... to the Privacy button on the bottom of their page to remove yourself which takes you to http://www.spokeo.com/privacy. Pass this onto those you care about.
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.
Me too. No one knows me by my real name except family and bankers.
Yes, it would. Many have already posted their names and whatever other information the site asks for, by asking to remove the info this site is collecting the info......wake up people.
LOL! They had my “information”, but virtually every piece of it was incorrect, starting with the city of residence which I haven’t lived at for 10 years, (and yes it was me because I have a very uncommon last name). I think all this site does is pull public data such as answers to magazine surveys, property record and such. Then “guesses” your income and credit score based on the averages in your area. The only thing that was remotely correct were my hobbies.
Would you like to explain why you posted a fishing site onto FR?
And Barack Obamas, too.
LOL - they’ve got mine all screwed up. They have me listed as married, (I’m not), “likes shopping” (I hate shopping), “not intersted in politics” (duh), ten years older than I really am and living in a house that’s worth $408K. My income and credit rating are also way off on there.
According to Spokeo, Barack Obama is in a relationship with no children and his age, ethnicity and gender are unknown.
One of my technonerd friends suggested that everyone stay away from this-most info is incorrect by design but by even searching on it, more correct info has been entered about you in another file! They have accomplished their purpose.
I don’t think it’s a fishing site to grab people who want to block it for privacy.
But the site’s sponsor appears to be a privacy protection company that will block you on the net, etc. Fishing for customers - more like it - the info is still there though....
Someone posted the white pages site on this thread - I was on that too - you can request taking your name off there also.
