i am not happy that yahoo also supplies a map to help those find there way to my front door.


i am freaked out because i had a stalker.

Well, are you listed in the phone book? Call the phone company and get unlisted.

You can thank your telephone company Iris...they sell listed phone numbers to the on-line white pages who then link them up to public record search sites, meaning anyone can get your info for a price.

After you ask Yahoo to remove your information, I would suggest that you get an unlisted phone number, only use your first initial instead of your full name whenever possible and make all of your on-line profiles private.

Knowing your history with your stalker, I don't want to scare you but the truth is if you have applied for credit anywhere, your current home address, date of birth, social security number, civil and criminal court records if any, marriage and divorce records, closest relatives and neighbors are available to anyone with $40 and a computer.

Its really unfair that so much of our personal lives are available for a price but there's not much we can do to stop it. Credit headers (the information at the beginning of your credit report) can be bought by almost anyone.

You can PM me if you have any questions about all the other things people can find out about you.

The difference is that I cannot look up a phone number and address in Detroit's phone book as I live in Florida, and don't have a Detroit phone book. The Internet affords people who don't have access to local phone booksthe ability to just go to Yahoo People Search or Switchboard...

If you haven't had someone stalk you, then you might not understand her want to not be easy to find.

And if they belong to Interference, they can even find out some good songs to stalk you by.

In all seriousness, if you are worried, change your phone # ASAP and have it kept *PRIVATE*--not unlisted. Private phone numbers are not only unlisted in the phone book, but they cannot be obtained from directory assistance except by emergency or law-enforcement agencies. Most phone companies will do it for free if you have received or are currently receiving harassing/threatening phone calls. My guess is that if a would-be stalker looked up your # online, called it (the old one), and found it to be out of service, they might well assume that you moved as well and wouldn't come looking for you.

Incidentally, I looked myself up on Yahoo, and I don't exist. No phone number, no address, no e-mail address...nothing.

hey i know...my parents are all worried about this. I almost shat myself when i typed in my phone # and got that map to my house. My parents were all surprised cuz they dont use computers or even know how to turn one on...they've always been so worried about people getting your info...

but yeah, theres really no way around it this day and age...someone wants your info, they can get it. Whether you've ever touched a computer in your life or not.

Whadya do?
