Spokeo.com / spokeo deception

United States Review updated:

Just think about it. They sell you an unethical service (cyber-stalking), and you expect them to ethical themselves? I have a nice bridge to sell you.

Don't be fooled. You will not be able to stop them from illegally charging your credit card until you cancel that credit card. They have the credit card dispute departments wrapped around their finger with their deceptively-worded fine print.

You will lose time, money, and your peace of mind.

    If you've got a credit fraud claim against them, or if they're posting pics of your kids, or if you're being harassed or stalked or blackmailed by people viewing your results, call the local police in Pasadena, where Spokeo Inc. is based: http://ww2.cityofpasadena.net/police/contactUs.asp (You might note that the chief of police's home phone number and address are available on Spokeo. As are his wife's or daughter's. And the mayor's.)

    You should also report any internet harassment to the local office of the FBI: http://www.fbi.gov/contact/fo/fo.htm

    Even if you're not being harassed, stalked, blackmailed, or bullied (yet), you can still file a complaint with the California Office of Privacy Protection: http://www.privacy.ca.gov/contact_us.htm

    And with the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

    And, if you've got photos showing up on the site, e-mail [protected]@dyndns.com to complain about the copyright infringement. (dyndns.com is the ISP, so they should want to investigate claims that somebody using their network is infringing your copyrights.)

    Also contact Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=privacy_settings_feedback to let them know that Spokeo has been harvesting personal data from Facebook, in blatant violation of Facebook's policies.

    You can also click the little "Block / Report Person" link on the CEO's own personal facebook page, and ask facebook to ban him from the site for selling your info on the internet for profit. That's over here: http://www.facebook.com/man4prez

    You can do the same thing on Friendster, at http://profiles.friendster.com/thedoodinthedood, by scrolling all the way down to the bottom of the page and clicking the "Report" link (which has an option to report people for using your photos or harassing you).

    And you can click the "Report Abuse" link at the bottom of his myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/139118283

    Call your Congressional and Senate Offices, and ask to speak with the legislative assistant who handles internet privacy. Explain the issues, and direct them to the website to look for their own information. The FTC needs to be asked to investigate them for their failure to comply with federal privacy opt-out programs. Their email option is a scam. The email never arrives. Federal policymakers can test the duality easily by using their own government addresses (which Spokeo claims to remove on a 'priority" basis) and personal emails. Should be one heck of a hearing in DC. Would love someone like Ron Wyden to get his teeth into this. If anyone starts a class action suit against Spokeo, please post here. Would be happy to join it too!
