SAFETY ALERT!

I am reposting this from a blog I read called Cop Mama:

Ok, I'm not trying to freak you out, but you need to go to:


RIGHT NOW, enter your name and see if your personal info is listed.
If so, scroll down to the bottom and click on "privacy" to request to remove it.

It is a clearinghouse of info and may include:

A MAP OF YOUR HOUSE
YOUR BIRTHDATE
YOUR CHILDREN'S NAMES
YOUR SPOUSE'S NAME
YOUR INCOME AMOUNT
THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

And other personal information you may not feel comfortable letting the whole world know about you!

Update: The website is really slow loading right now because the entire law enforcement community is on there trying to get their personal info off. Try again later if you can't get on now.

I checked out the site, just to see how bad it was, ready to start the process to get our information removed.

I had to laugh. Yes, some of the facts are correct. For example, they do have my husband and I listed as married to each other.

Other information is so farfetched, it makes it hilarious. They have our street the same. He, according to them, lives in a house valued over a million dollars. My house, the same one, is valued at $200-400k. Other than our street name, and the year our house was built, the rest of the information on either of us is bogus.

I've checked about 10 other people. Same thing. A little accurate information, a whole lot of garbage. The little that is correct is information that is readily available through real estate records and the like. So, at least for me, the website isn't too big of a concern. I will keep an eye on it though, in case things change. Thanks for the headsup!

Lisa, I remembered you wrote this and had to come back to find it and comments on it. I have in the past few weeks been using this site to find people to repo their cars, man this is awesome for my job. The only good thing for people and bad for me (work) is that you have to pay for alot of the info. But man they do post alot of it.
