Warning: Another Super Scary Site Sharing Your Info Without Your Permission
Remember earlier this year we warned you about Family Tree now and how they posted highly personal info about you, your kids, your addresses etc. Here's another site that just might be even worse and you need to delete your info now.
The web site is called True People Search According to their web site, this is an easy way to find long lost friends and relatives....however, this site buys and sells your personal info to third parties and after looking myself and my wife up, I was horrified to not only find our names and past and current addresses, but our kids names and our phone numbers and email addresses. How did they get my phone number and email addresses? I guess I now why I get so many scam sales phone calls and scam emails.
I realize that most of this information is public record...but not my email address and certainly not my phone number...plus even if some is public info, does anyone really want it all in one easy place for criminals to find and use? I know I don't.
With all the recent news about viruses and ransomware, a person can't be too careful these days, especially when it comes to your kids and private phone numbers and emails.
Everyone with an internet connection and a computer has free access to this information. Think about that, thieves, stalkers hackers and other criminals all have easy access to your info.
Their web site says:
“Our mission statement here at TruePeopleSearch.com. We want to make finding lost friends & family as easy as possible. We noticed the other free people search sites out there weren’t very powerful, and the most powerful sites were too expensive. We wanted the best of both worlds! So we created this site for everyone to use for free. It’s super powerful. You can find just about anyone in the US. And it’s really easy to use.”
To get your info off this site, will take just a few minutes... just click on RECORD REMOVAL request and follow the instructions. I place a video below to show you and easy to use demonstration on how to delete your info
The process took me about one minute from start to finish. A word of caution it will take about 24 to 36 hours in some cases for your info to be deleted and since a lot of people are now finding out about this, the website might be very slow or even possibly crash while you try to delete your info. If it crashes, keep trying back until you are successful....then share this with all your friends and family
