Some might think it funny, I think it is insane. I checked this site and it is for real. This is the reason I do not post my last name anywhere publicly viewable on the internet.
By first look, this site only work on USA residents. Is there one for Europe?
Beginning (JULY ’06) a new database will be available to the general
public free of charge that displays your personal information(names,
addresses, phone numbers, birth dates). (Social Security is available
for a price.) The database is found at http://www.zabasearch.com/ type
in your name and check … you’ll be as SHOCKED as I was!
I urge you to forward this email to family and friends.
Check to see if your name and information is in their
database. If so and you want it removed, send them an
e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
it be removed. I do not know how our names are appearing there, but I
checked my own and a few other random ones and they are all in this
After opting out by email, check back after a few days to make certain
your information has been removed. If it has not been removed then file
a complaint with your State’s Attorney General.January 23, 2007 at 2:24 pm #39059
I’ve seen plenty of sites that can do this, online phone book sites for one, and a few other other people search site, http://www.bigfoot.com for one which has been around for a while. (I’ve use big foot to try and find some of my friends I’ve lost touch with. (dang you, common names!))
Most of the time the sites can’t find me but the one you posted was pretty close but doesn’t have my correct address on it.January 23, 2007 at 2:40 pm #39060
bigfoot.com aparently uses the same database as zabasearch, but it wasn’t free from what I saw. Both are powerd by Intelius.January 23, 2007 at 2:49 pm #39061
Bwahahaha! With the second most common first name through 3 decades and an Asian last name, the site found 77 matches for me. Going to middle initial, there were still 14 matches. If soneone can find me in that mess, they deserve a medal.January 23, 2007 at 2:51 pm #39062
I searched all 50 states for my name w/o middle initial, and it pegged me right on the money, my wife too. 🙁January 23, 2007 at 2:54 pm #39063
Didn’t seem to find me at a glance. Guess I’m lucky. 😛January 23, 2007 at 3:33 pm #39064
It found a lot of my relatives but not me. 😆January 23, 2007 at 3:46 pm #39065
It didnt find me right away theres alot of people with my first name and last but it dont seem to matter with middle names witch most people know me by. 😈January 23, 2007 at 4:48 pm #39066
thanks a lot! im all paranoid now! 😯January 23, 2007 at 4:51 pm #39067

Hmmmm, I didn’t know that “Pasty W. Guy” was that common. 😉
If soneone can find me in that mess, they deserve a medal.
Sorry, I’ll only do it if BOY creates a Zabasearch metal. 😉
Actually, I was thinking that Zabasearch has been around a little longer than BOY’s post suggests. I remember that name from back in ’05.
It’s kind of fun to play with, though.January 23, 2007 at 5:32 pm #39068
heh..I never knew that many other parents had punished their little ones
in the same manner
over 70 times in my state. none of them myself..but
hmmmmm….i think “they” are getting closer now…
so i’ve updated my profile’s location to something a bit more general.
you can find me somewhere around that
tiny 3rd rock from the sun
……there, I can go back to sleep againJanuary 23, 2007 at 7:27 pm #39069

I found you. 😛
im all paranoid now!
Just so not too worry too much, I’m told this sort of info is condsidered public just like your name in any phone book. I still don’t like the idea of such an easy internet phone book though. It feels creepy.January 23, 2007 at 7:39 pm #39070
Your not the only one that lives in a state that has some creepy things that have gone on. A twenty year old muder was solved not long ago and the details on what was done to the women was nastier than what I’ve seen on CSI.January 23, 2007 at 7:49 pm #39071
I’m not in there, thank goodness.
…However, my mom and dad are.January 23, 2007 at 9:19 pm #39072
