    I spend a lot of time online and there are loads of different things that I do just like all of you out there and I was wondering if using fake name generator can get me screwed over? I register for multiple GMail accounts or just one timer accounts on sites like EzineArticles and I really don't want to use my real info etc... so I was wondering if by using fake names, addresses etc... could I get screwed over somehow? I'm in the UK if this helps anyhow?

    I write under a variety of pen names, have never had a problem. On the flip, if you're trying to scam someone, get a fake ID, credit card, etc., that's a whole different ball game and then YES, you're open for lawsuits, etc.

    I'm pretty sure most of the addresses that get generated are for the most part fake. And I use fake info all the time when signing up for emails, youtube accounts, etc.. There's always at least a slim chance of getting in trouble one way or another.

    Nah not scamming lol. Just normal accounts. So if I signup for a Google accounts with a fake name then I'm open for lawsuits? PS. I'm not talking about 100's of accounts just a few for different things. :)

    Ahh I didn't see your post before... how about accounts to sites like YouTube, Squidoo, etc... ?

    Fake Name Gen states this:

    LOL so I guess that as long as all my activity is legal where in this case it will be. I can use this for these kind of stuff without getting into any trouble. :)

    Yeah, so as far as names and addresses you can avoid giving out personal info. But, if you ever do anything to get yourself into trouble they'll always have your ip anyways, unless you're hiding it.

    don't worry about it bro.
    Everything there is randomly generated. The addresses are nonexistent through my experience.

    Thanks for the input, I know a lot about fake stuff and proxies etc... but I do not really have the time to keep using proxies for stuff such as this otherwise I wouldn't really be asking but I'm doing this from my IP. Thanks. :)
