      They know who you are...

      www.spokeo.com

      Put yourself in the search engine and see if you are in their database. Then post if the info is correct or not!

      Should be fun. Here is me...

      What was right: My Address, my name, and my lack of children.

      What was not: My relationship status, (I am single, it said I wasn't.) The number of people living in my house, (it said I live alone when there are 2 rooms being rented out and 5 people who actually live there...) AND, this was hilarious, I am in the top 92nd percentile of incomes in the country and in the top percent of incomes in the county. And there is this 200 thousand dollar house I have sitting around somewhere... Where did I put that? Hmmm... Anyways- How I do that making 7.50 an hour is a mystery! I refuse to give up my secrets... (Meanwhile, my preacher who has a million dollar+ house due to real estate smarts is below the 40th percentile mark. Pick it up, Rev!)

      And somehow my dad is a nurse, (which is correct,) but only has a highschool education... Oh, and he has a house worth over a million dollars. That is nice to know, I am going to ask him why he is holding out. Haha. But most of the stuff, wife's name- child status- etc. was spot on. Creppy...

      So, how about you all?

      Not in database. I love being a sneaky little bastard and flying under the radar.

      Sorry you can't make fun of their misinfo man! But I am glad you enjoy ninjaing the system.

      BTW, a relative of mine with a company worth tens of millions is apparently middle class. Tough break.

      Meanwhile, a young, female cousin of my mine is actually a man in her 50s! (It is not talking about another person with the same name, as it says she is related to me in a roundabout way.) Oh, and she/he has these kids she has never introduced me to! Man, am I giving her/him a piece of my mind next I see her/him!!!

      Hahahahah, that's one seriously screwed up database. I do wonder...can you search people and get phone numbers? Oh, yes! Well, this will come in handy when having to fill out spammy forms before downloading anything. >=)

      It has many people's number, e-mail address, and street address.

      @Invader. I've been randomly searching people I know. I have found that, (roughly,) they seem to have about 50% of the people I've searched. Still pretty good, considering.

      What was right: Address, Family (although it was missing my sister) and that was about it.

      Things that weren't right:
      Said I was in my 40's, I'm only 17
      Said I was married AND had children, I've never had a legit girlfriend before
      Says my zodiac is the Taurus, I was born in July so it's Cancer
      My Hobbies are totally messed up so I won't even bother posting them
      And a couple other minor errors like making $46k income

      This isn't very accurate

      Let's just say it was slightly off when it said I liked to smoke cigars, enjoy quilting, and enjoys gardening

      Hehe. Yeah, hobbies of most people I've searched are way off.

      Here is a question regarding a friend I searched. How can you have a 800,000-1,000,000 dollar home and live in a 'below average' neighborhood? (And the wife, who is still with him, live in a house worth quite a bit more? Anyone else realize how ludicrously overestimated just about every home speculation is?)

      Some of the searches on my friends give strange results. What they seem to have down for the most part is the location. I think that actually purchasing their monthly whatever gives more accurate information, but I wouldn't know.

      Yeah. You would think, though, that even the demo would give the most accurate information possible, but just a limited amount of it. Otherwise, very few people are going to pay for something that they can't trust.

      It has my name and address but that is it. If you already know my full name, then finding my house probably wasn't to hard any way. They probably got that from things like voter registration and other public information. I blame the government.

      Ha ha, I'm pretty far under the radar. It had no results at all based on my name. With my email address, it told me my fake My Space name and my age, but nothing else.

      I'm not is Spokeo, but that kind of thing is why sometimes I wish I had a more common name. When I was young, before the internet was in every home, I thought it was cool to be unique. Now, anyone can just type my name and find my address because I was naive enough, at 18, to put it on the internet.
