Manta.com Manta Media Inc / Vilated 4th Amendment

1 United States Review updated:

Manta is in violation of 4th Amendment rights to many unknowing persons. I believe it is time to congregate together and file a suit, for monies are being made on private personal information that is purchased from a third party sources. And Manta, since you have so irresponsibily listed my personal home address, if anything happens to myself or my family, Manta and affiliates will be held liable. I demand my information and profile be removed from Manta.com and Manta Media Inc immediately. Enough reqeusting, perhaps Monday is a good time to see just how many Constitutional Lawyers would like to devour this scenario.

    Rob3,

    At some point you registered your business with personal information. Manta has company listings, not personal listings. Please contact us at 866.432.6398 choose option 1 and we will gladly remove your company listing from the Manta database. Manta’s sole purpose is to help small businesses be found online and generate new business.

    Regards,
    Manta Customer Service

    I just did a Google search on my own name and found it on your site, not only did it have the address I am located many hours of the day, but also a nice little link to D&B so anyone can try to find out how much I/my company makes, how is this not listing personal information?? Do everyone a favor and add a “remove me” button before the lawyers get involved.

    I, too, googled myself and to my horrified surprise, found a listing of my personal home address as well! I have never heard of Manta, nor have I ever shared any personal information with them. I then attempted to "claim" my "business" and was informed that my profile changes were pending, and my listing has not changed and has not been removed. I feel completely violated and will gladly join in any class action lawsuit that will most likely be filed against Manta and affiliates.

    Rob3,

    I completely agree with your comment on getting people together to file a suit on companies who profit on public records. Has anyone started a suit yet and how can I get involved. After repeated documented attempts, I am still dealing with unethical issues caused by Manta regarding my private information.

    I echo Robs complaint and I called the # to have my info removed and I was given a bold faced lie that my info would be removed.
    I confronted the person i reached and confronted her about the false info and lies about removing me and Her exact words were" If you want to refresh your screen you will see you have been removed" I was not.
    She kept blaming D&B who's products she is selling.

    Hello all,

    First, let me apologize that you're frustrated in regard to your information being shown on Manta's site. Anytime we get a request to remove information we do so, and it updates on Manta's site within 24 hours. However, it can take several weeks before search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) update their search results, so you may still see cached information online for a few weeks.
    If you still see your name on Manta.com, please give us a call at 866-432-6398 or use our contact page (http://www.manta.com/coms2/page_about_manta_contact) and we will gladly help you out.

    Best,
    Karen

    Manta is an abusive company. It's very obvious that they are abusing data mining techniques for personal gain. Their strategy is fairly simple:
    1.) Leverage data mining to farm data that small businesses would typically keep private.
    2.) Post data online and focus heavily on ranking well with Google and other search engines.
    3.) Once a small business owner discovers this, he/she comes to the Manta site and is greeted with "Claim your profile and we'll straighten this all out."
    4.) Once the profile is claimed, Manta knows that the business owner is alive and well and now has freshly validated contact information which they can sell to third parties. Additionally, they can try to market their own services while they are at it. Collectively, small business owners have a lot of purchasing power and are a very desirable demographic.

    It's just plain gross. Digital Scam Artists at their worst.
