Please go to http://www.spokeo.com and search for yourself. Once there find all entries on you, your personal information and that of everyone in your household is for sale through this site for the outrageous sum of $2.95 per month.

You can remove your listings by copying the link and clicking on privacy at the bottom of the page. Pretty much everyone is finding multiple listings so check each state you have lived in. They only allow you to remove so many listings per day so you may need to create trash email addresses to get rid of them all.

Short list of what is available
Birthdate, Address, Income, Property records, estimated worth of your home, other people living in your house(children and adults).

The same information that is available on you is available on them.

I'm not sure if it is just USA, so far it looks that way but no guarantees.

I removed myself from that a few weeks back. There is another site similar to that one, but you have to actually write to them via snail mail to have yourself removed. I forget the info right now - I'll look into it and come back.

Okay, I'm back.  The other site is Peoplefinders.com.  I got the following from their site:

"Peoplefinders.com values your privacy and upon written request, can block your records from being shown in many, but not all, of our search results. To do so, you should contact us by writing a letter giving us your:

    a.    First name
    b.    Middle initial
    c.    Last name
    d.    Aliases and A.K.A.'s
    e.    Complete current address
    f.    Complete former addresses going back 20 years
    g.    Date of Birth - including month, day, and year

It is also very helpful to include a printout of the records you wish to have suppressed.
Send this letter to:


Opt-Out/PeopleFinders.com

1821 Q Street

Sacramento, CA 95811

** This information will be kept confidential and is used only to ensure the complete suppression of your records. **"

BTW, Jensau - it looks like these databases are just for the US.  At least, that's what they claim.  It probably can't hurt to run your name through there just in case.

Definitely I found my late mom on there too and she passed away on 2004. So you have to check not only yourself but for any deceased relatives.

Someone told me about that site on Pomme de Sang board a couple weeks ago, and when I looked myself up, I was amazed at how wrong some of the information was.

Yes wrong and outdated in some cases but still enough to lead to the correct info. The thing that get's me is who they can get to through you.
