For whatever this is worth to you guys...I'm not in here at all. If you run my name and ss# through any credit agency I come up right away. But here only once with an old town/ state and phony year of birth (when you click on the address it comes up with unknown.)
The phony year of birth I can actually account for...I don't have any magazine subsciptions, internet subscriptions or anything else. Very rarely I enter an internet contest. But I read through the rules to be sure they're not passing on the info first. In the even rarer case that I want to enter if they don't guarantee privacy I enter the wrong BD. So when something like this comes up, if it's the wrong BD I know they got it from some contest. In this case must have been a contest many, many years ago.
So it's not for me a matter of getting my name off, it's making sure it never gets on. My phone is unlisted, I only give my internet address to people I know, etc, etc.
With all that I do get some spam. Most of that I believe comes from being on ebay. In particular I believe that when you list something for sale on ebay your e-mail gets picked up by these spammers.
