Wow. That is incredibly creepy. Just took myself off, but the funny thing is that half of the info listed for me was wrong!

So creepy! I found my maiden name. It said that I’m in a relationship. How would they know if I was or not??

Even creepier, apparently, they have a limit to the number of privacy requests they will process each day. I received the following error message when trying to remove my information “In order to prevent abuse, we must limit the frequency of privacy requests. Please try again tomorrow.”

@labbit – Most of the info for me is wrong as well, but I still don’t like that it’s there, and I definitely don’t like that it won’t let me remove it!

Also make sure you search for your email address as well on Spokeo. There may be a second profile which is linked to your email alone.

I asked to be removed for the page which referenced my name only, but when i searched under my email address a whole new page came up.

 

Man, I am really pissed now.

I looked at this too and it does look sort of like a scam. It had my address but none of the other information on the search is correct. I checked a bunch of names and none of them were.

Too weird.  My name wasn’t on there, but FI’s was.  It said he was mid 50’s.  LOL.  He’s 24.

It’s actually funny!

Apparently, my home (I don’t own one) is worth 400-600K, but I don’t make that much income (I’m a clerical worker, apparently), I am in my late 20s (wrong), Caucasian (nope) and have lived in my “home” for 34yrs! Oh, and I have kids.

I looked up my mom and it had TONS of information on her. It gave her name, age occupation and street name among other things. She is the only person that lives on that street in the entire town (they own a farm and the whole street is their home and property)

She works at a prison as a Nurse and a lot of the inmates do not like her. Doesn’t this put her in danger???

How is this legal???
