There's a site called Spokeo.com that's 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, etc. You can remove
yourself by searching for yourself on their site to find the URL of your
page, then go to the bottom of the page and click on Privacy button to
remove yourself. Copy & re-post so your FB friends are aware.

There's no point in worrying about this sort of thing.  All it does is grab stuff that it finds on the internet with a giant rake.  Most of the info is wrong or redundant.  It's inaccurate enough that you don't really have anything to fear from it.  I found so many errors with the info associated with my name (and there are about 20 people with my name or similar in the DFW area) that it's useless to worry about it.

 

One thing I do that thwarts any value to systems like this one is constantly spread disinformation about myself on the web whenever I can.  Every time I sign up on any site or service that requires an address or a birth date or any other information, I fudge it.  So I may use a different street address or name or zip code, and I may change my birthday by several days, months or even years.  That way, nobody can REALLY be sure what info is right and what is wrong.

 

So just don't worry about it.  It's all public info they are shuffling around anyway.  Anyone can find that info with a little bit of work, and it would be more accurate than what is presented on sites like spokeo.  Every now and then, this spokeo thing goes around, just like the urban legends do.  I last heard about this several months ago.  There's even MORE disinformation associated with my name since then!  So much the better!  :-)  The more disinfo, the less the real value of such a "database" to anyone.  It's actually a kind of protection to you, if you think about it.  Total plausible deniability because it's so full of garbage.

 

Now, if your name is Xenikrank Aruziagnoub, then maybe you have a problem, because I'm sure there's only ONE of those in the whole world!!!!!!  :-D

There must be alot of people with the same name,they have me living in places i have never been.my home town in kentucky they have me listed in 6 different addreses that i have never lived,plus PA and tampa FL.i did live in tampa years ago.
I think i know him hes from tazmania.
Maybe they get the information after we visit the site....??
I can't figure out how to remove myself.  Can somebody let me know how to find the URL of my page?  Thanks!!!

OMG this is SO creepy!  I am fit to be tied.  What has our nation come to?  Hoping I got the removal right.  It said to go to my email for confirmation...praying it works.  This is disgusting.

 

SUCCESS!! I got a link to click on to confirm.

thanks for the update Twana, I was't there but the hubby was. I got him removed also...
Thanks for the info Twana
I am listed there many times, I do not see a privacy notice at the bottom on any of them so I can I remove myself?
Maybe those with multiple names can't remove the info because of the multiple names. You know, which Tom Jones is removing all Tom Jones.

AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!!

OK, I'm better now!

(8,998 are probably better looking than you. I'll give you the rest aren't.)

Mike, Brand new year to screw up. How long will it take them?  Doing good Bro, how you?

Re this spokeo.com thing: HELP! I cannot figure out how to find the URL so I can click on the privacy button. Any help would be appreciated.

How to post "live" URL in posts at PFA............. Adding URLs in blog posts that are not "live" is a waste of everyone's time.....
Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK". You have now made the URL "live"...........it shows some code before the post is published, it goes away when you "publish post".......
