ATTENTION ANYONE WHO READS THIS

There is a website called spokeo.com that aggregates your personal info which ANYONE can have access to for as little as $2.95! Even without paying they can see things like

  • Your full name
  • Your address, INCLUDING A PICTURE OF YOUR HOUSE AND ITS APPROX. WORTH
  • Your home phone number
  • Marital status
  • Names of family members

IT IS THE CREEPIEST FUCKING THING I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!!!!!

I  go out of my way not to put my name on this site and sometimes I think I’m being over the top but no, I remind myself, you never want to give away things that someone could use to track you down and kill you with and I JUST SAW A PICTURE OF MY GODDAMN HOUSE ON THE INTERNET. I am livid and freaked out.

Okay. Breathe.

You can have your info removed.

  1. Go to the site
  2. Search your name
  3. Copy the url that matches you, which will look something like this “http://www.spokeo.com/search?q=Smith%20Sample#Sample:12345678”
  4. Go back to the home page
  5. Scroll down to the bottom and click privacy
  6. Paste the url and your email (I was reticent about this but considering they already knew everything else about me…)
  7. You’ll get an email about a minute or so later with a link to click to confirm the removal

I don’t even have words right now.
