    I just Googling my name (Yea, I'm bored) and came across Spokeo.com I searched my name and saw that it lists my address, phone number email etc.

    Usually I wouldn't care but this site displays your address, email, phone number, picture of your street BEFORE you have to buy anything.

    For just $2.95 a month you can access anyone's info.

    If you search and find yourself you can remove it:

    Just a heads up if anyone finds themselve on there and wants to remove it!

    If I'm correct, most of these sites/companies can provide this because of public records. In order for you to prevent this from happening you would need to go to county clerk's office to request removal.

    Yeah... I've come across a few sites like that actually. I forget the name of 'em but for some you have to sign up for them to have yourself removed from the site. After noticing several websites like these, I kinda just gave up. Just be careful on what info you put about yourself on the internet!
