We’ve known about your mortgage history for years, and now it’s really getting personal. Realtors are building teams of people to help process this data, and seek out those who are most likely to move. Don’t be surprised if you see realtor marketing that feels a little creepy!
If you think what can be had through public records is Big Brother, imagine what the “authorities” have at their fingertips. Lexis-Nexus and Thomson-Reuters are not your friends.
This looks to be about what you can get on Lexis-Nexus, but I haven’t seen one of those reports in awhile. Funny thing is this real estate site requires you put in more of your personal information to sign up, creating further cross-referencing of your personal data.
The data sites that charge $30 or more have a lot of info also, but some of it is not accurate, going by what I’ve seen, and that’s fine by me. I noticed I’m connected to relatives I don’t have, for example.
Setting up a trust, or a corporate veil can obfuscate yourself to a degree from the idiots. They can still get some of the dots, but can’t connect them as easily–which is one reason why you’d want to bother doing that.
If you want to slow down/stop random sociopaths from mischief, set up a trust.
Until some key congressmen get their identities stolen, nothing’s gonna change.
YOU can’t get into areas of those sites that are funded my our benevolent governments.
