I usually keep the personal stuff out of here. But since this rant relates to Zabasearch, a web site, I'm going to spout off for a minute. Please bear with me.
Zabasearch is touted as "The #1 Free People Search and Public Information Search Engine." And whether it's number one or not, I can't say, but without a doubt, it is thorough. In fact, I'd say it could very well turn into the number one tool for stalkers and identity theives. It takes a small amount of initial information on a person to pull a whole myriad of info. They've obviously pulled together a large number of databases — yes, some would argue that those are available other places already — but I greatly dislike the fact that they've made it so easy for people to find it all in one place. I can't really think of a good, upstanding use for this tool. (Don't say to find long-lost classmates 'cause there's already a site for that!)
Go ahead — enter your name (you may or may not need the state). You'll find your birthdate (month/year), phone number and street address (with the date that particular address was recorded which makes it simple to tell which is your current address), county and zip all in the initial results. In fact, if you've moved much at all, you'll likely find a good many, if not all, of your addresses. Then, all you have to do is click to "map it." That gives you a great map (thanks to Google Maps) and you can see the neighborhood by satellite as well. The other links will take you to a Google search for that name, and some other paid services like:
- background check
- property check
- advanced people search
- an instant background report (which includes bankruptcies and liens, small claims & judgments, criminal check, sex offender check, address history, relatives, friends and neighbors, alias names, AND much more!)
- business listings
- income and home value
- unlisted phone number information
- you can also "leave a message" for the person
How to Submit Records, Edit Records or BLOCK records FROM APPEARING IN ZABASEARCH
Individuals wishing to have records created, edited or blocked from appearing in ZabaSearch, can use ZabaTools. Click the ZabaTools link below.
Only there is no link for ZabaTools anywhere that I could find. It seems to have been removed. Leave me a note if you find it. I want out of there.
