Has anyone here ever heard of spokeo.com? I just looked up my name... and it has my full name, address, phone number, relationship status, college education, and a PICTURE OF MY HOUSE!

I am DELETING myself from their site by following this link:
http://www.spokeo.com/privacy

You guys should go and check to see what is written about YOU on there. People can even pay to get your credit score! Technology seriously freaks me out sometimes. :nono:

all it has on me is my name and address. you can obtain that through a plethora of ways. and the only way they can get your credit score is to pay money for the info. again, anyone who really wants that can get it another way. companies do it all the time. they even had a couple of details wrong anyway- I don't have kids and I'm not a Virgo! Its crap. Just a way for some website to get money out of people.

Who puts in your info there?

I looked up my dad's, and 90% of the info is wrong, and not current.

Ugh WTF??? Thanks for posting this! I tried to remove myself and my parents, but it told me "we must limit the number of removals per email address to PREVENT ABUSE." Ummm I'm gonna say that having a picture of my HOUSE on this website is abuse! Most of my info is wrong, but the pic of my house isn't...scary! There's even a listing for my 90 year old grandma who has never touched a computer in her life, much less been on the internet.

You guys, the pictures of your houses will still be there. Google street maps have pictures of your houses on their browser. google your adress, and you'll see a street view of your house :\

They got my address as our old office address. And all the rest of the info is wrong too.

I know that, but google maps won't let you google my name and look at my house.

Didn't think of that. :shame: sorry. haha. I searched myself (I'm underaged!), and all the info is false. So I'm not going to bother to remove it.

hmm...removal requires you to enter your e-mail address...that smells fishy to me. be careful about the site.
