    that is actually a good thought!

      Anyone remember that Chappelle Show sketch about when keeping it real goes wrong? The girl gets a call and the person hung up so she looked up the number and got a map to the caller's house and went over there causing trouble LOL

      That's what this reminds me of...maybe that's extreme but there are some loons out there so you never know!

          that's what I kept thinking, I am sure that there are psychos out there that would come after you for calling a wrong number, sure it's extreme, but it might happen

            Oh yeah, there are a lot of unstable people out there and I don't need them getting instant & free access to my house!

              Gone are the good old days of pranking. In jr. high we used to prank call people all the time. "Is your refridgerator running?"

                there are a lot of other services that do this service for free too. unfortunately, removing from google doesn't remove from other services. too bad the "do not call" registry doesn't remove numbers from things like this...

                and, even tho this is probably one of the easiest ways to find people---- the reality is that it doesn't take too much effort to find anyone online. I've helped adoption agencies track people down just from a womans name and the town they lived in 20+ years ago, in less than half an hour, and found my own mother in less than 7 hours when all I had to start with was the first initial of her last name. with determination and motivation, it can be done by almost anyone...
