Important Privacy Warning!

Posted by libhom Friday, January 07, 2011

I got this via I Can't Believe This Is Not a Democracy:

Spokeo.com is 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 Privacy button to remove yourself.

I just did it. You have to give them your e-mail address for the final removal process, but I searched for my name after I went through the process and I was no longer listed.

Your call on whether you want to do this. Naturally they charge users for your information. Fuck that. If they don't contact me first to ask to buy that information, then I'm removing it. Note: You may be listed a few times. There were two entries for me, one of which was over 15 years old. The removal process is quick. You'll be off the site in minutes.

I would check back every few months, just in case. I was listed twice, and a lot of the information was wrong. I don't know if bad information is a good thing or not.

  3. Classic baiting.

    They aggregate anything they can find and claim it exposes you then they offer you a deal to hide it...

    How many other outfits are doing exactly the same thing!

  4. Thanks for the link, libhomo. I'm getting real tired of some corporation making money off of my personal information. Along with not buying their stuff, I'm trying to pay mostly with cash now. Fuck them and their marketing bullshit.
