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 relative's 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.
I received an invitation today to click on an email where it stated I had been added as a friend to Reunion.com and to confirm if I knew this person - yes or no - so they could connect us. Well, I emailed the individual and inquired if she had provided my address to this company. To say she had a small seizure is an understatement. She has responded to everyone she has ever known from birth until now and having a hissy fit in the meantime.
It seems she received an email from a trusted friend and began to fill out a profile. Once she got far enough along decided she wanted no part of the website and deleted her profile. Too bad, so sad. Somehow or another all on her email list have been sent an invitation to join. Please members, be careful of what you sign up for or agree to. The friend maintains she never gave an address to anyone. This website obviously sees things differently and sends an invitation to anyone and everyone to join.
