I have a relative that has a history of stalking. This person is able to purchase my unlisted number no matter how much I change it. He can get access to all of my private info. numbers, address etc. Every couple of years he does it just to taunt me. Should it be illegal for companies to be able to sell this information to just anyone? Do you have any idea how easy it is to find out anything about anyone for only $20 bucks? Is that not scary? Do you miss the days unlisted meant just that?

oh wow, that's eerie with the missing person's number. sad. I'm with you it's just too easy to get information and fraud is rampant because of it.
I agree, there is an ethical line I think that was crossed a long time ago and it's very unfortunate. Now we have Google street view - just incase your stalker want's a birds eye view of what your home looks like. sigh.
Oh, yes, I was appalled to find that it wasn't a photo of my home that was released publicly such as the real estate mls. They took their own photo.
Unfortunately, even a number on the do not call list can be bought by someone. I was on said list and he found me anyway. I love your answering machine message :) lol
do not call only applies to telemarketers not stalkers.
Like I said get a number that you ONLY give to trusted people and don't use or post it anywhere. If he gets it then you have someone on the list who shouldn't be.
Which I think poses another question on the ethics of some marketing companies - but that's a whole other subject :). Thanks for the advice, I'll look into Google voice, my skype number/service has been less than stellar.
