There's a site called www.Spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB or web, your approx credit score, home value, income, age, etc. You can remove yourself by first searching for yourself on their site to find the URL of your page, then going to the Privacy button on the bottom of their page to remove yourself.

Check with Snopes.com on this. They have a different view on Spokeo. It will gather your information not block or stop anything. Very dangerous to your peronal information.

Interesting, and a slight bit creepy. It's like selling your life's info to the highest payer to me. I don't like it at all. So from what this is saying, they request your email to remove yourself, yet speculation says they are trying to, well, harvest personal email addresses then? I wonder what the point of that would be.

Yes, you must also register. That gives them your name, address, phone # and birth date (to make sure you are of legal age to register). Also, they get your money to get the information you want! They are a scam.

It didn't require me to register to get my info taken off. I just pasted the URL into the needed field and put in the little code thing to verify I'm human.
