I went and tried to remove my info from a bunch of sites. Some had more accurate information than others. It’s a strange feeling that I can’t fully know what’s out there about myself without paying for it (unless I track down the original public sources, but are those even free?).
Side note: has anyone heard about any real-life people who pay the people-finding sites for information about potential dates or contractors or whatever else the testimonials say? I’m mostly wondering, I guess, how sites like PeekYou and Intelius make their money - through purchases, or is it through advertising like so much of the internet?
