default Removing your name from internet databases

Post by waterdragon7 on Wed Jun 13, 2012 5:41 pm

I found the following website by serendipity this morning:

http://www.abine.com

Read a couple of their blog posts, and then had my name deleted from two of the databases. There are still many more databases from which I want my personal information expunged, so it's going to be quite a bit of work. This site will apparently have your personal information expunged from many of these databases, but they charge an annual fee of $99.00, iirc.

They provide directions on their site regarding how to have your personal information removed from twenty to twenty-five databases here:

So I have a lot of work ahead of me! And unfortunately, it was stated you have to continually repeat these removal requests. I'm not sure how often, but will estimate every six months to one year. Shocked

Good information to know, even if it is some work.

I looked at a few of the Do-it-Yourself procedures and they all involve sending a copy of your ID...is that safe? In my mind, that's generally something I'd steer clear of (sending personal info like that out over the web)...but I've never tried anything like this, so maybe it's standard?
