Unsettling internet findings

I Googled my name and found myself on PEEKYOU.COM. It was my MySpace profile pic from when I first sighned up like five years ago. Some of the info was wrong, like my middle inital, it listed two cities I've never been to, much less lived in, but the scariest thing was it made reference to drugs on the life bio line. Obviously I never posted this profile. I've never even heard of peekyou.com. It is apparent they got the info from MySpace. I contacted the website via e-mail and told them I wanted this profile deleated immediately. Do you think I should cancel my MySpace account also?

  • eeeek sorry I posted the google your name question, eh or I guess if I hadn't you would have never found that.

    If they do not delete the account like you have asked then I would delete your myspace page. For now I would leave it.

  • hmm that is a strange site. what bothers me a little when i searched myself on it is that they have a phone number with the last 4 numbers as *s. The begining is a very common land line around here, so I'm not sure if their right or not, but if they are I've NEVER had that number under my name, it's the land line to my parents house, and I'd like to know how they hell they tied me into it.

  • Violaswamp: Don't be sorry. Acutally, thank you. I never would have known if you hadn't said that! Pudge: you're right. That is a scary sight. From what I saw anyone can log on and change anyone's profile. They have a disclaimer that they are not responsible for the content of the page. I would tell them to remove you from thier site!
