    Just a little disconcerting how much information can be gathered on you and quickly compiled into this.

    That is why you set everything to private, use a dummy email address when signing up and not volunteer information about yourself that you don't need too.

    Sign up for dummy email address FTW. I think they limit 2-3 requests per email address so you may need multiple to clear your entire family.

    Re: spokeo.com

    We learned about this a couple weeks ago and "cleared" ourselves. Makes me wonder how many other similar sites are out there avoiding detection at the moment. There must be money in creating these sites, even if some find out and delete their listing.

    Yeah horribly inaccurate information, some is correct, but they have me being 15 years older than I am, and living in my OLD house, and still have my Married Children living with me. I wouldn't pay for their full report, for any reason.

    Re: spokeo.com

    I checked this out for myself, my wife, and some of my coworkers. We're all mid-late 20's and Spokeo mostly had everybody's parents' info listed for us...creepy that they have pics of their houses tho.
    Intelius was by far worse for me...all the info was correct and you can see social security numbers.
    Other similar websites: Radaris, ZabaSearch, ZoomInfo, Pipl...all do similar creepy things

    Maybe best course of action is to let your congressmen/women know that we feel these typoe of websites should be illegal or that the government agencies should stop sharing our info online...that's where they're getting the info in a lot of cases
