BlockShopper LLC / Revolting Company that Destroys Privacy & Safety

1 2704 Bennett , Evanston Illinois, IL, United States

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 the internet.
Now, if a stranger or person with malicious intent decides to Google my name, they get my full address on a nice easy to find platter!
I have obviously emailed "Scarlett" (apparently a fake name, may not ever be a real person as all answers to my emails seems to be computer generated) and implored her to simply change my last name to my last initial so I could have SOME security in my home. Blockshopper claims that wanting to feel safe in your own home isn't a good enough reason to have your last name shortened on the website.
I even explained to her that my mentally ill mother (who has threatened to harm me and my property on multiple occasions) has recently Googled me and found out where I live. Wonderful! I have been HIDING from her for years, and now she knows exactly where I live - all thanks to Blockshopper.
This company does not care at ALL about the general population's safety and well-being. They refuse to do something that would take away nothing from the purpose of their site (change my last name to my initial, I told them I don't care if the price I paid is up, etc). They would rather maintain that their site is "legit" than be decent and show some concern for another human being.
