It is incredible that so many companies are making millions by selling your personal data behind your back. The truly scary part is that although you did not give them permission to do this, they are doing it anyway. One of the largest companies doing this is called PeopleFinders. The tag line of PeopleFinders is “find anyone, anywhere.“ Well that idea is just plain creepy…this means that anyone with an Internet connection and a few dollars could easily go on peoplefinders.com and find out where I live, my personal phone number, and even the names of my family members.
