Just How Much of You is Out There?

I just got an e-mail from my sister-in-law that is somewhat annoying.

If you go to Zabasearch and type in your full name and home state, they will offer you a lot of information, and for about $50.00 you can learn alot about anyone or they can learn it about you.

Most of this is public record, but does it have to be so easy? You know their name, you now have their address and phone number, and for some money they know even more, your friends and associates, employment history, criminal record, credit record etc.

It's all public knowledge, but shouldn't it be available on a need-to-know basis?

By the way, this had nothing to do with the Patriot Act. It would be available if Gore had won too.

Information is getting far easier to obtain, including individual purchasing patterns. It wouldn't matter who was in power.

I have used that site before to find someone a friend was looking for... Now they charge you for more than basic info, a year ago you could find out much more for free.

Yes Skip, but how much of your personal info do you want available to someone who is simply curious? Peoples' affairs should be on a need-to-know basis.

I'd comment but it's being monitored.
