Consumer Identification Protection Alert

The goal of Market Research is to always find the best interest of the consumer.  Since this is a Market Research Oriented Blog, it’s only appropriate that I keep you, the consumer, informed of sites that violate your sense of privacy and security.  I came across two sites that you need to be aware of.  They are Caller ID Look Up and Telephone Number Identification.   Once someone enters your phone number, they get your name, phone carrier, location and the last time you used the phone.  This seems like a complete violation of privacy.  Thankfully getting yourself removed is easy.  While I have found these two, I’m sure there are many more out there, so be proactive and protect your information.  You can do this by periodically using a search engine to search any information you consider private.  Then look for the place to remove yourself from their directory and contact the site.  The time it takes to get off the list varies, but it’s worth it to get your privacy back.  There are many scams that are out there to steal your information.  While you may not be able to find them all, when you do find one, work hard to get your information removed from their database.  One less place for your free information to be stored.  Stay alert and stay informed!  B.M.M.O. Consulting will do its best to shine the light on consumer’s issues, as they are made aware of them.
