BlockShopper.com - Wont remove personal information

We have had a security issue and have asked blockshopper over months to remove our information. To be clear, we have been threatened by an extended family member and we need this removed for our safety as this comes up in Google search. Like many others no response to numerous emails to blockshopper with this request despite our safety concerns. We are very frustrated with the sites lack of concern for our society and safety issues for their own greed (advertising revenue). It's really sad that their founder and CEO Tim Landon doesnt take this issue more seriously.

Desired outcome: remove my personal information

BlockShopper.com - Invasion of privacy (revealing personal information); they won't let me to opt out

the posted my home address, the home price, the date of purchase, etc... on blockshopper.com which is showing up on google search of my full name; here the link:"https://blockshopper.com/mn/washington-county/forest-lake/property/0703221330033/22084-ethan-avenue-n". I followed the google recommendation on how to remove it by sending them an email requesting the information be removed, but they refused saying they will only do it if I am a police officer and similar profession because according to them they got the information on the county site. But the county information does not show up on google search for a reason,

BlockShopper.com - Listing

I've already requested that my information be removed from block shopper and Scarlett Simpson emailed me to let me know they have no opt out policy. In many municipalities the names of homeowners will not populate an address out of concern for the safety of the property. I have been inundated with calls about purchasing my house to the point where I get several daily from random numbers even though I've blocked them. At this point they are facilitating harassment by paying Google to come up at the top of a search. If they get paid off my data whether or public or private I should as well.

Desired outcome: Full removal of my information of my information

BlockShopper.com - Block shopper put all my information online that can allow me to become a victim to fraude.

They have my personal information online, making it accessible to anyone - my name, last name, address, home information. Just google my name and you will see my name, home address, how much I paid for my house, the date when I bought it, etc. I know it is public information, but I didn't authorize them to make it accessible online. I want them to remove all my information from their website.

BlockShopper.com - Failure to remove the listing of my home on a sales site without my permission and requests to remove

I have tried on several occasions to request the company form listing my home on this home shopping site. My house is not for sale and they should not list it as a agent would. I do not wish my name or property to be listed as if it were an active for sale listing. I believe that California has a law that protects my privacy rights.
All other websites have removed my information upon my request except this company. They ignored my first few emails and finally received a reply indicating that basically they do not have to remove my information. My home is NOT for sale and should NOT be listed on a website for home buyers.
I don't think it's right that they can list my property as I have not retained them as an agent to post my property,

Desired outcome: I want them to remove all of my information from their website.

BlockShopper.com - Listing my name and complete address on their website

I've never heard of this website. All someone has to do is search my name on the internet and my full address comes up at their fingertips. What I paid for my house, taxes, date I moved there etc. What right do they have to post this personal information that at anytime can jeopardize myself or my family's safety. They refuse to remove or consider removing any information without a police report or other personal information. What right do they have to request that. I see complaints going back to 2010 on this website. Why can't they be shut down. They are jeopardizing our safety.

BlockShopper.com - Fraudulent misrepresentation on website

Blockshopper.com is fraudulently listing an ownership that is inaccurate. This property is owned by IDA LLC. They need to correctly list the ownership or take it down. I want them to contact me immediately at [email protected]

Despite numerous emails and calls they have continued to incorrectly publish false information on their Block Shopper website. I am the legal manager for this LLC and I am demanding that they take this listing down immediately.

I will expect this listing to be removed no later than September 15, 2020.

BlockShopper.com - Personal information

What a terrible site! They don't respect other peoples privacy and they are truly horrible!
I contacted Blockshopper many times and asked them to remove my personal information like name and address from their site and got nothing but empty promises. They said sure but did not remove anything and all my personal information is still available on their site.
That is not right way to do a business, they should respect their users more! I'm planning to remove my business from their site because I don't want to deal with them in the future!

BlockShopper.com - Revolting company that destroys privacy & safety

This company is truly horrific. I keep to myself and keep my internet impact very low. There are very few results that return when you Google my name. Until Blockshopper. I was so happy to buy my very first home last year. However, Blockshopper decide to rain on that parade by taking my full name and posting it along with my full private home address on...

BlockShopper.com - They stole money and my person details

The company www.Blockshopper.com broke the law. Someone must stop these liars. I haven’t had any deals or purchased anything through them, but one day they got the access to my account and stole money. As well as they started to post my details on their website. It was illegal action. However, if you complained they didn’t react. Do be careful and share this information. It might be very useful.

BlockShopper.com - privacy

this company collects real estate data and publishes it along with personal information including current and past address without the subjects consent. this company is exposing the people who's data they publish to unwanted calls, inquiries, identity theft and stalkers at a minimum. this company should not be in business and i hope someone can do something about this.

BlockShopper.com - scam rude an rip off

Block shopper.com has me listed as a bad shoper at the wrong address and with the wrote the following.
Re:Wednesday, May 4, 2011 2:34 PM
From: "Rob Biedermann" View contact detailsTo: "kenneth gilgoff" Kenneth, is this English that you write? I can't understand you. We don't remove addresses or names. If you find it necessary, please contact your Senator or Attorney General. Have a nice day.
From: "Scarlett Simpson" View contact detailsTo: "kenneth gilgoff" We abide by all local, state and federal laws in regards to privacy and the first amendment. You can contact the county in which you reside. If they are willing to remove you from the public record your information will drop off our database during our next update from your county.
I will do exactly that I sent my senator an email from them saying this. They can not argue freedom of speach because they have no right going to public records and publishing it. I am asking each one of you to write your senator and advise him or her of this. Maybe we can bring a class action suit agaignst them. Follow me pleaee The hell with them. I hope to see them on the unemployment line and their company go bankrupt in the process. We have an saying every dog has their day.They will have theirs too.

BlockShopper.com - Violation of Privacy

I was made aware of the fact that a company called Blockshoppers uses search engines like Google to expose information from public records, making anyone's personal information like home address, EASILY accessible to ANYONE who knows how to use Google. They claim to have an opt-out process, but it is not true. I have tried to go through it, and still got my request denied. They claim to only post public records, which are already available to everyone. While that may be true, their service is the only one that allows a simple Google search by a person's name make available very personal information. By doing so, Blockshoppers puts lives at risk, and should be shut down.
