FYI EVERYONE- There's a site called spokeo.com and it's an online phone book that has a picture of your house, credit score, profession, age, how many people live in the house, kids, home value, income, etc. Remove yourself by the Privacy button on the bottom right of the Spokeo website. They had so much information on us!

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

hi. just been on there and it's obviously US only, however my search engine gave me a list of other sites that give the same type of informations. being in the UK looks like we are protected ... for the time being.

I checked out this site and has such a laugh. You are correct that they have information about you but they are so wrong (at least in my case and my husband). They said I was a male in my 40's. I am definitely not male and not in my 40's (yet). Also we just moved to our house less than a year ago and they said I have lived here for 14 year. I have not even lived in this state for a year so how can I have lived in this house for that long. I have never lived at one address for that long. Thanks for telling us how to get off their list.

I just read who there info is gathered, all the info they have about you is out there floating around in cyder space. Just makes you wonder ..... what you could find if you really tried, plus how secure are things like facebook ect as we all put personal info on , pics of our kids for family to see what your hobbies are ect.... quite scary

There is a privacy and removal of your info when you first enter the site so go back to the home page and you can remove your name and info there.

OMG!! My email came up and so did a photo of me! It says I live on the gold coast though lol but to actually see anything else you have to pay money and join so I'm thinking it might be some kind of scam

[deleted account]

My husband and I live in the same house, but apparently his home is worth $1M+, and mine is only work $400K-$600K! (I wish!) Depends on whose name you look up....weird site. No pics on us, some of the info is right, but most of it is off a bit.

Weird! I've never heard of that site before. I went there & looked up myself, my family, a few friends & some info was correct & some was way off lol. It didn't have a picture of my house, BUT my brother-in-law's house was on there. It said I was in my 60's, and I'm only 25 lol. I wonder where they get this info from?

I searched just about everyone in my family. There were lots of results, but mostly inaccurate. Which is good.

I've just had a look, but i'm from the uk so i won't come up but i did see someone else by the same name as me, i can't believe you can access stuff like that, it shouldn't be allowed. I'm not aware of anything like that in the uk.
