Using personal info without permission
I did a Google search of my name to see what would come up. To my surprise, I found a record for me in Reunion.com and Mylife.com. I have NEVER signed up at either of these sites. They have my name, DOB, town and a relatives name. This is personal info. Their site claims they get info that is public knowledge on the web and put it in their database. Funny though how my name is only showing up in their database. How is this legal?
I searched the internet to try to find out how to remove my info but all I could find was other people who have the same problem.
The other thing I found out that is that both of these sites are scams. People should not sign up at these sites. They take a lot of money from people by luring them into thinking someone is looking for them and that they can find out who it is if they join. Another thing, if you sign up, somehow they can access everyone in your address book and they start sending them SPAM to get them to sign up and they tell them you signed up.
Be careful what you put out on the internet and what sites you use. I thought I was careful but I was not careful enough. I don't know how these sites got my data.
