There's a site called Spokeo that's a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything including pics you've posted on the web, your credit score, home value, income, age, etc., etc.. Remove yourself by searching your name, find the URL of your page, copy it, then go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on the Privacy button to remove yourself. You have to put your URL in the box then follow simple instructions.

WTF! How is this even legal? They even have how long I've lived in my house, the amount it's worth and if you buy into their shit people can see my wealth and what I make and who signs my paycheck!!! This is ridiculous. Thanks for bringing this up to us. I'm taking this site to the Operation Security guys on base and see if they can do something about this. Worth a shot.

CRAZY! Just did mine and my wife's profile and it was easy. Thanks for the heads up on this.

This is exactly why a lot of the guys in my squadron don't have online profiles. I had one guy when he went through SERE training, the instructors got all his information before he even showed up and they used that against him. Talking about how they were going to his house while his wife was alone, blahblahblahblah and it got to him mentally. He did manage to get through the course but man that is just creepy!

Yeah I had a buddy of mine show me this. It had me, but the information was not to correct, but removed it anyways. Sites like these should be banned, but it would be hard to stop them.

It's nice when people find these site and share, for this I thank you. It's hard enough to find my place with an address I'm so glad Spokeo added Google street view.

Yep lot of info out there.. Alot of these sites use the same exact sources, for instance you will see the company intelius alot, as they provide alot of the pay for services. But some provide alot of info without paying

so you always have to be careful what you say on the internet these days.. employers are now starting to check your social pages for illegal, immoral or other harmful type of comments than can, and will get you fired.

this page is just as thorough if not more.

LOL.....this site's been around for a long time. IIRC, there was a CNN article that said that nothing about it was illegal since everything posted was public information (and you can choose to remove yourself).

What I found interesting is that I can't find myself, but can easily find my brother and parents information. I'm easily the most active in the online community and business worlds, but there isn't a single trace of my existence on that site. Ironically my father who never uses a computer/internet and hardly has anything under his own name can easily be found as well with basic information.
