This people search site is scary and knows too much about me.

    I punch in a bunch of people I know and checked out their ages [​IMG]. It's kind of scary.

    On other hand, I punch in some friends names I couldn't find for decades and was able to get where they lived and their age. Seems reasonable and I think they're who I'm looking for. I'm tempted to do a $20 fee to get unlimited search for 7 days.

    Anyone used it. Is it legit.

    I hate to be a target of a killer. They wouldn't have any problem finding me.

    Wow, that thing is almost scary accurate. It finally found me and had previous addresses in there that even I had forgotten that I used to live at.

    Yeah, that's good, it had all of my locations going back to when I first moved out of my parents' house after high school. Except that it doesn't have my current location, which I would never advertise anywhere. Like, below my user name on HTF, or something. [​IMG]

    I don't know if I want every Tom, Dick and Harry knowing that info about me. Does this site run afoul of privacy laws or is everything on there public record?

    They at least seem to be claiming that it's from public info:

    It is all public record. The lovely internet just makes ones access to that public record very easy in this day and age.

    So you pay a hefty bill to hire a private detective and he goes on here and pay $40 and report back to you in weeks claiming he traveled all over to get the info [​IMG].

    Not if I asked him for photographs of the person - and I'm not talking about shots from 100 feet away and blurry.

    It did not find me. Unlisted phone numbers and a too common name are the way to go.

    Henry, I never listed my phone number but yet it's available. Common names don't help because of the same age and location record.

    It couldn't find my dad because he never had a loan, a bank account where he's the head, a credit card, no longer has a driver liscense, don't register to vote, ect.......

    It really is about how much you're out there.

    that site is very similar to us search. funny, they have my updated age, even though today is my birthday.

    i tried to find an old friend, and this site had the person in the database while the link above did not.

    Some of this info has to be from a credit bureau. One of them has my middle initial wrong, and sure enough, I show up with the same sets of locations with both middle initials.

    Had me, but apparently I was 'off the grid' during my two year stint in NYC. [​IMG] None showed my age or phone number though. A cell phone is good for something.

    So for $39.95 you just get one background check and for $17.95 you get a weeks worth of just adresses and phone numbers on an unlimited amount of names? I guess if you really needed to check someone out, the background check would be better.

    [​IMG] Had info on me.

    For the hell of it, I put in a few names - Anna Paquin, Frank Frazetta,Zooey Deschanel,Uma Thruman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Quentin Taratino. It found them all.
