Spokeo: How to remove your name.

This is a site that I had not seen before until today, I got 3 separate emails in about the last hour telling me to take a look. Basically, from what I have gathered they are a site that compiles all your information from other social networking sites and profile pages you have signed up for. I would suggest taking a look at the information they have on you and if you don't want all that info online you can have your name removed by going back to the front page and down at the bottom in the middle it says "privacy" click on that and follow the instructions.

Thank you for posting this Tiffany. I had no idea, and I was shocked at the info they had for me and my family.

Interesting. Thank you! I am moderately amused by how much *wrong* information they have for myself and my family, as well as how much is right. Happily I have done well covering my new married name tracks. :)

Uh, yeah. Quite a bit was wrong. I am NOT hispanic (Guess they assumed that because of my married last name). I don't think it's fair you have to pay to have the info removed, though.

I didn't have to pay to have anything removed, I just followed the email instructions they sent me and checked back an hour later and my profile was gone.
