Default URGENT:not a scam or joke

THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A SCAM.... Go to this website Spokeo.com and search for yourself, they have all your information, exact address, income, credit score, telephone number, occupation, and all kinds of other info that I am sure you do not want out for the general D-bag to find.... You can remove yourself from this site by
1. Searching your name, and copy the entire URL
2. go to the bottom of the page and click on privacy
3. Paste URL into the box, and put your email address in, and type in the code into the other box..
4. Go to your email and click the link that comes to you..

WWW.Spokeo.com



I went to the website and it was 100% correct, all my info was on it and it took me all of 30 seconds to search and find it. Some may not think its a big deal but I for one did not like the idea of being on this site.

Remove yourself if you want if not cool.. just thought I would pass it along

I talked to a friend who opened up an account to see how much info really was on there.. This is hearsay as I did not see it but he said it had financial info such as if you have investment accounts, what banks you use (no account numbers or amounts) and other information.

Like I said I did not see this info just what he said.

LOL it had my address correct but it did not list an estimate on what my house was worth... it said middle class which is correct.

Me too Eddie. most info is wrong. I hate gardening. If that's the best they can do, it's pretty pathetic.

If people would keep their private lives of Facebook, MySpace, and other similar websites, you wouldnt have to worry about it. There isnt a single mention of me or my wife on there. For reasons that are career related, I take certain precautions to keep my life private. Actually even if it wasnt job related I would do the same. Why anyone would want their private lives, pictures, schedules, and personal information plastered all over the internet is beyond me.

Mine right on address, phone and broadly speaking age and occupation. Everything else it was off to way off--photo of me was the wrong race.

Funny thing is it had 2 listings for me....One at my parents address where I was in a relationship, and a 2nd at my current house (for the last 5 years) where I am listed as single......I'm married and my neither house was worth anywhere near $1m, but I would be happy to sell it for that

Hmmm....Looks like my home value is >$1M (which may even be more, considering they don't seem to know I have central heading and A/C). I guess I can cash out some of the equity and buy that Intrepid I've been drooling over!

It also says I have children. That's a new one on me. I suppose I better start calling the ex's...
