The same thing happened to me--I removed my info last year and it has shown up again.

I sent an email to *******@radaris.com and included the 2 URLs where my info was appearing. A little later I received a reply--I think it was an automated message--that gave step by step instructions on how to remove my info. This was the same set of instructions found at http://radaris.com/help in "Information Removal, Can I remove my information from this site?"

One of the steps involved Information Control. Since my info had already been removed, this option was not available.

I replied to the email explaining this. A few hours later I received a reply. The info on one of the URLs had been removed. However, the info on the other URL was not. This is the explanation I received:

"The phone book look up we cannot remove, we have received this from a public source. It is important to contact your provider."

This did not make sense. I replied that if the info on my individual page had been removed, why couldn't the info on this other page be removed? I have not received a response. The info on this page is still appearing.

Radaris controls what appears on its site. If it wants to remove something, it can. It should not hide behind nonsense.

This other URL is phones.radaris.com/XXXXXXXX where the Xs stand for an area code and the first 5 digits of a phone number. For example, phones.radaris.com/55555555. You will be taken to many phone numbers that are similar to the phone number you are looking for. Not only does this section have phone numbers, it has names, addresses, some ages, and some occupational info.

I did a Reverse Phone lookup from the Radaris site, and because my info had been removed previously, the site did not return info for my phone number. I only know about the radaris.phones.com/XXXXXXXX subdomain because I came across it when I did a Google search for my own name.

Radaris does not seem to understand that removing information from Radaris means removing information from Radaris. It does not mean removing information from a webpage while still displaying the same information on another webpage or subdomain. Radaris is playing games and being deceitful.

Radaris does not seem to realize that although the information in its databases has been obtained from so-called "public" sources, this information, when readily available to anyone who has an Internet connection, makes people vulnerable to identity theft, stalking, age discrimination, and other abuses.

The upper right corner of the Radaris homepage says "Trusted Site" and "100% Ethical Site." This is not true.

Radaris needs to respect and honor someone's request to have his or her information COMPLETELY removed from the site.

I agree, this is not an ethical site.

I only know about this site because I found my name listed on it--I am NOT a member and NEVER registered.

When I clicked on my name, I was taken to old news articles that I have no interest in, and links to outdated topics that I have no interest in.

Their customer "service" is pathetic. I sent 3 emails and NEVER received a response--not even an automated one.

They stole my name. I am not a member of this site. I never registered for this site. So why is my name listed?

These people have no class. I have no respect for them.

What is so ironic is that they have a Scam Warning link yet they do not seem to be aware that they have engaged in unethical behavior by posting the names of people who are not members.
