BeenverifiedInvasion of Privacy

BeenVerified sells personal information to strangers without your permission. They claim they collect this information from public databases, but they also use social media to create a profile on unsuspecting citizens. They then sell it to anyone who asks for it without requiring proper ID, or filtering out those with criminal intentions. They will happily release your personal data, including home address, phone numbers, workplace, relatives' names, email addresses, FB page, et al., to your stalker or to an identity thief. They are not interested in protecting anyone from harm. In fact, they profit from exposing innocent citizens to those who would harm them financially and/or physically. They will even give your information to an ex-con whose jury you sat on, or for whom you provided testimony against or filed a charge against. These ex-cons often get out of jail seeking retaliation, and they can use BeenVerified to find you in a matter of minutes, as well as locate your relatives.

File a complaint with the New York State Attorney General's office, with your state's AG's office, with the FTC, the FCC and write to your representatives. Contact your state's board of elections and let them know companies like BeenVerified are creating a hostile atmosphere and are interfering with your right to vote by using voter registration rolls to gather information on you and sell it to strangers. Stand up to this blatant invasion of your privacy.

    Prior to signing up with my email address at beenverified.com, I received maybe one spam email a month on my new gmail account. A day or two after putting my email address via the signup form on beenverified.com, I now receive about 5 spam emails a day for the last 3 weeks!
