This is creepy, look yourself up:

http://www.spokeo.com

Even has pictures, your income level, birth day, email, phone information (some have cell numbers), how much you paid for your house, number of kids you have, etc.

Yikes ...

Sure, the only problem is that the info is crap.
they list me as: Actually:
Occupation: Tradesman Magician
Zodiac: Gemini Cancer (born June 30)
Education: High School I hold a PhD in Psych & Math.
Length of Residence: 1 years Been at same address for 18 yrs
Neighborhood: Below Average Actually is is upper middle class

Then tosee any other info that is probably not correct you have to pay $2.95 a month for a year. This is just crap.

It's correct for 4 friends, several fellow employees, my parents, myself and an ex wife. Couldn't find my Realtor and had wrong information about my brother. It's hit and miss.

akirafist, with this topic and the one about B.O. "cutting off" the internet, leads me to wonder one thing. Have you been taking your medicines like you should? I know, sometime paranoids have real enemies. :lol:

It has my parents info right except for college education and a few other things. I usually just don't give people a reason to hunt me down so I don't have to worry about them showing up at my door :lol:

Maybe you're not listed if you're under a certain age.

You probably need to own a house or business to be listed.

You're right, I forgot to take my Viagra this morning.

Everything is on the web. They have really gone one step further. There should be certain laws regarding this which everyone should abide. Getting into someone’s personal territory is not acceptable. If this is not stopped then everyone will get everybody’s personal data.

...wonder if this is how Derren Brown pulls off some of his lesser mind reading effects. While this is creepy, I'm not listed (woo!), and, for that matter, this could be an invaluable resource to a mentalism routine where you know people who might be coming. The hobbies for some people I've looked up are DEAD on.
