Wow, just checked out my name. While there was a lot of information on me, some of it was grossly incorrect.

They don't have any info on me, but they do on my father. The only thing they have right is his address, something anyone with a local phonebook would know.

It was all wrong for me. The age was off by ~25 years, my birthdate must be incorrect as the signs were wrong. The only thing close was listing my parents' house as my address, although they moved after I went off to college, so I've never actually lived there.

Strange. I have ran a couple people I know and the info has been pretty good all they way down to their sign and pictures of their house.

Oh well. I thought I would share. :)

It had my address and home telephone number. The picture of my house that it showed was presumably from Google Maps. So it wasn't anything especially alarming.

Darn, I searched myself then realised it's US only.

I'm so jealous! Why don't we have any creepy stalker websites on this side of the pond?!

It's correct on the most basic items - which are otherwise very easy to find online anyway - but off base on the other stuff.

It also tells me things about my 92 year old grandmother I never knew: Very active in sports, loves to garden, has a home worth over $1 million... wow. I see her several times a week and never had any idea! :eek:

It reminds me of this site actually:

Wolfram Alpha

Don't know if you guys have come across it before but it's pretty cool!

Type in your date of birth for example. Gives you all sorts of interesting info about the date - not personal info don't worry.

EDIT: Check out the examples... looks like a pretty powerful website!

Mine isn't even close besides the address and name, which can be found in a phone book.

The info about me is pretty much incorrect.

Yeah, I'm on there with a correct address, but that's it. Everything else that is display is wrong.
