    They can find you anywhere, check out www.zoominfo.com if you want to see what can be found out about you, and 25,000,000 other people.

    All the ''findings'' for my name were incorrect.

    Mine said that I was a catholic preist, a school superintendant, a corporate VP, and an amature wrestler. Ain't none of that true, or course.

    This is the best one I've ever came across. I bet alot of you can be found on this one in one form or another. ie: e-mail, phone number, address.

    RE: I just tried it and I don't think it works as good as it use to but feel free.

    That is so scary. theultimates offers to find your unlisted phone number :eek: . Zoominfo offered to sell me information. Not a pleasant thought.

    That is pretty freaky. A family member with whom I had broken all contact (who is also, incidentally, pretty freaky) found me through one of those kinds of sites. Also found my work address and sent me stuff there, too.

    <shudder>

    Very unpleasant.

    We're trying to figure out a way to keep our info off the web once we get to the farm.

  11. Interesting, I typed one of my ex girlfriends name in their and it said she was a lawyer in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I thought.....No, that can't be her. Then I typed moopups name in and stated he is a chaplain. :haha:

    I was surprised that it said no results for me and only one for my husband. He comes up on all the search engines with lots of pages (because of his website). But I usually come up with links to his site or by ebay store or to publications that published an article I wrote. Even my brother didn't come up and he has a wild west show and frontier clothing store. I guess I'd rather search for someone on Google.

    This thing is lame. My brother and mother are both local celebrities and appear in national news media from time to time. Yet there's practically nothing on them.
