There's a site called spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB or web, your approx credit score, home value, income, age. Remove yourself by searching your name, find the URL of your page, then go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on the Privacy button to remove yourself.

The info may not be completely accurate or current, but it is enough that you could easily find yourself getting your identity stolen or get on a lot of telemarketer lists.

Ok, I haven't put TOO much out there, I might as well check it out. Thanks.

yeah, I heard about this.... it really doesn't qualify as accurate, but there is enough info that is true on many people that someone could manage to gain access to your identity. It's worth checking out and trying to remove yourself.... better than leaving the info out there for anyone to see.

I hate these dam facebook nerds they need to stop posting peoples private info and profiting from it.

Someone already hijacked my name as a domain name... oh well. Unfortunatly the web has too many mirror sites meaning your content will pretty much never be removed from the web. When it comes to public records, there is an even greater chance of it being posted all over the web. If I was wikileaks funder I would probably be a bit more worried about my where abouts

For a site like this though, I'm definitely not going to sign up just to remove myself. Not like it will stop people from spamming me, or credit card companies coming after me. They want me they can come get me

1) You do not have to join to remove yourself. You look yourself up, when you find that blurb with the basic information that you know is yours, copy the url. At the bottom of the page is a link labeled "privacy", click it and fill out the form with the copied url to have yourself removed.

2) This is not just facebook info. There are people I found that I know for a fact have NEVER had a facebook account. This information is coming from multiple sources.

I've heard of this site. I haven't taken myself off from it mainly because my info there is laughably inaccurate. For example, it said that I work at Home Depot and I have an income of about $100,000 a year. I wish, but seriously. I'm only 13, how inaccurate can you get?

I heard about that site on the local news a while ago. There's really no reason for that much info to be available regardless of how accurate it is. I'm not on it, but my Dad is and the info is a little accurate. It's not like the info can't be found elsewhere, but there's no reason for a site to compile all of it in one place.

The main thing that worries me is that more often than not the address is correct, and you don't have to pay to get that. Other agencies that collect such information and make it available to the public give nothing out for free, and that leaves a paper trail back to anyone that requests such information... but you can just type in a name on this site and find someone's address and use it however you like.

There is currently 25 people with my name on Facebook and a rather insulting link to a page using my name on Google. I think I would find it hard to find one that is mine on that web site.

Edit: I found 17 or so of people with my name exact name, but none of them were me. Perhaps that's a good thing.

Yeah, probably means that there isn't enough info on you yet.

Also, keep in mind that after awhile your info might show back up on the site... happened to my cousin.

Ok... find your information, when your info is in the box in the middlish of the screen, copy the url at the top of the page, that is the one that you need.

Klawed... you'd have to be a registered member of that guild to see it though, wouldn't you?

I'm not going to search my name whatsoever on the website. It would probably just coerce them to look me up.

Luckily, they don't have anything very personal about me. Only stuff like what social networks I go to, pictures I've posted on public picture sites, (Imageshack, twitpic, you name it) and what social networks I'm on.

I guess one of the great things about being poor and paranoid is that sites like this have no interest and no way of finding you

Still these kind of sites piss me off.
