Spokeo.Com: Stealing our identities/financial info without permission. What to do?
I got an email from a friend who said for me to go to Spokeo.com to check to see if I was listed. I am not even on Facebook or any other “social media” network….and I was listed anyway. My address, how much money I made, my address, what the house I lived in was worth, my age, my family, that I had one child…incredibly invasive stuff! Our information is being sold for a few dollars to anyone…including financial information.
I know some of you don’t care….but I do. I feel that this is obtrusive and it feels like a violation. I don’t have anything to hide, but I guard my privacy, especially in this age. As I said, I don’t Tweet or Facebook or do anything like that….for the same reason.
Can someone please tell me how to get rid of my information…apparently, there IS a way to delete my profile?
