    Urgent Message: "Spokeo"

    Post  VBBN on Sat Jan 08, 2011 5:46 pm

    There's a site called Spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book w/personal info of you: from pics you've posted on social netowrking sites or web, your approx credit score, home value, income, age, etc. Remove yourself by searching for yourself on their site, copying the URL of your page, then go to the bottom of the home page and click on "Privacy" button to remove yourself. Let people you know aware of this. EVERYONE with an email, phone, house, or even just a simple website account like flickr or social netowrking sites is on this site.

    And no this is not spam, this is a serious matter in which i am going to find out if it's even legal or not. Even if you do not have an email or phone number, your parents and essentially everyone is on here. And yes even non-american are on this site, I already know of some british polish and French friends of mine who have foun themselves on there.

    For a quick example, searching my phone number came up with my address and a google earth image of my house

    Thanks for the heads up VBBN, this is so disturbing that a website can get all that information. :no: Sad
