    2. I found Spy Stealth’s information while researching getting late payments removed from my credit report. Then sent him a mail for help. It took me by surprise to see the improvement made on my credit report earlier this week. I don’t have much to say, I can only describe him in one word “Awesome”. Contact this genius at spystealth|.|org|@|gmail|.|com.

      1. Your input is appreciated. There are many ways to correct incorrect public records, some of the time it’s best practice to hire someone to help out with this

        1. That’s absolutely true. My credit was horrible. I had everything on there from repos, evictions, etc. I just wanted to be able to live somewhere decent and that was an impossibility for me at the time due to my low credit profile. I got to know about a credit repair guy from my course mate who I’m so grateful to. I would not have met this person, if he hadn’t told me of his quality service. Since I met him my life changed. My credit report is now worth being happy about.

  2. Please I need to update my public records my name is Eric Williams my number is currently listed as 8454016927 it should be 7702848181

    1. Hello Eric,

      I can have your information updated in our database to correct your incorrect public record. I would also make sure that the phone company is advised of this as well. Please reach out if there is any additional public record information that we can assist you with.

This being said I did some research for you and included a link below to Experian where you can change your phone number on your credit report.

  4. My name is Michael J Adams my public records say that I have lived in places that I have not lived and have a list of family members that do not belong to me. For 20 years people call me all the time. Year after year, day after day etc.etc.etc continuing to call me looking for a man called Peter Adams. They say I must know him. He is not a family member and I never have known him.. I have told these people (collection agencies) thousands of times yet they get angry at me and never stop calling me. I work nights and they call me and wake me up all the time. Cell phones don’t work where I live so I keep my phone. Please help me. Sometimes I think suicide is the only way to get them to stop, Yet I fear these people will follow me to Hell and when I find a cold place in hell they will strap on their ice skates and horas me for eternity skating around me screaming “Peter, Peter Peter Peter.” How do I get these places that I have not lived ( Like States I’ve never been to.) and these people I dont know off my public records.

    1. Hello Michael,

      I understand your frustration and would like to help. This is a common problem for people that have common names, with the same middle initial. There are a couple scenarios I would like to share with you.

      1). If you see a public record with relatives and addresses that are not familiar than it might be another Michael J. Adams. In this case there is not much you can do because those records are not your public records, hence we won’t be able to fix the record in our database.

      2). The second scenario is if you see a public record that you know is yours and there is also relatives and/or address information that is not yours. If this is the case we can correct the record in our database. That being said, you will want to contact the large U.S. data providers as they will potentially have these incorrect public records also. I have provided some useful links below to help you correct your incorrect public records.

  5. How do you remove / update ‘relatives’ ?
    There are people I’ve never been associated with somehow showing as a ‘relative’ and I need it corrected immediately. Not sure who to contact. Really appreciate your help with a resultion. Thank you

    1. AnKan,

      We can certainly help you modify you public record in our database. Can you provide us with your full name, age and residence as well as the relative that you would like to be removed from your public record.

        1. This will be a long and difficult process if you’re attempting to remove relatives from your public record. You will want to contact the relevant county, state and federal agency that manages those specific public records and submit a request to have those records augmented. Unfortunately we cannot assist you with that directly as we do not have an affiliation with any government agency. We merely report what information was collected, and published as public record, by the various agencies. If you can be more specific as to what type of public record you are attempting to correct we can help to point you in the right direction.

  6. My name is Thomas Coleman and my phone number is listed as 501-297-3347 but that is not my number it is 501-777-7973.

    1. Thomas,

      We will have this modified in our member’s area for you. I have forwarded this information to our support team. You might also want to check other public phone number databases as we get our information from the same places they do.

  7. My name is Helen G.Peterson and I have a real problem. Not only do I have a person listed in my records that I do not know but also all of his family.The second problem is that there is about 6 residents that I personally have never resided at and accord to the recoorder I live in two different places at the same time. Most of residences belong to my ex husband and not myself. How do I remove all of these mistakes.

    1. Hello Helen,

      Removing all of these mistakes is certainly tricky. You will need to get to the bottom of this issue and find out which agency is reporting these mistakes.

      1. Experian provides and distributes many of the public records that third party information providers will show in their records.

      2. LexisNexis is also a primary information provider whom you can contact in order to correct your public records.

      3. You may also want to check property records in the county where the incorrect records exist. Here is an example.

      Best Regards,

I have updated my number with my credit profiles, including all my creditors. And with my bank. However my old number still shows we will no longer use nor have. help

    1. We can certainly update this information in our phone number database however you will need to contact the other phone number directories where your phone number is incorrectly listed.

  10. I am recently married and my maiden name is Jessika Adam. When I search it it comes up that I’m related to a “David Priede” which is incorrect. My name and marriage status has not been updated yet which I’m ok with, but I do know “David Priede” and due to us not being related I would prefer for us to not be associated. Thank you for your time.

    1. I will forward your request to our customer support team to have this incorrect public record mitigated so that David Priede is not associated with you. It may take a couple weeks for this public record correction to be reflected in our member’s area. Thank you for the feedback.

  11. Hello my name is Doreen Lartey. Public listed my phone number as 1-703-485-5578 but my phone number is 920-403-0791 can you please help and correct it?

  12.

    1. That is very unfortunate and we are sorry to hear your identity was stolen. We are not sure how we can assist you. What incorrect public records were you attempting to correct?

  13. Hello! My name is Kenneth Paul Hartz from Tallmadge, OH. Public database has my phone listed as 330-690-3123 which I stop using that phone number 2 years ago. Can you correct it my phone number is 360-830-6698. Thank you!

  14. My record is not accurate at all. Where in the world did this information come from!?

    My husband’s profile is incorrect, also. I looked at my profile and it looks like someone made stuff up just for the heck of it. Another profile says I’m married to someone else and there are people listed as relatives on my profile I have never heard of. Now that’s creepy

    1. Often times there are people with the same first and last name so be sure to verify that you’re looking at the correct public record. That being said if you find that your public record is incorrect then we can change it in our database however we get our resources from government collected public records. If you intend to correct these records then you might also want to contact the relevant county, state and federal agencies that manage these public records.

  15. I was in an abusive relationship with someone who tormented me and my child. We now have a life long restraining order against her. During identity verification, when I am asked to provide her name, age, date of birth, etc it feels awful. I have to remember all these things about someone who destroyed me. My identity is based on her, a violent, disturbed individual. I have PTSD, and having to prove I’m me by reliving all the abuse … it’s too much. I want to move on with my life, but it’s hard when I’m asked about her over and over. It’s as if I’m not me without her, except for she’s a sick, twisted person. It took me so many years to get out of that relationship and with the PTSD it still feels like it will never end.
    Is there a way that I will ever be able to end my association with her? There are so many things about me other than the fact my child and I were almost killed by someone we trusted and I’ve worked hard to try to prevent this one thing from defining me, but this makes it feel like it does define me.

    1. It sounds like a very unfortunate situation and you’ve taken measures to remove this person from your life. Unfortunately your contact information is public record so that will be difficult to hide. You might consider changing your contact information if you feel you’re still in danger or being harassed. There is not much we can offer you unfortunately but we are happy to lookup any public records for you. Please let us know if this will be of any assistance for you.

        1. That would be difficult. You would have to contact each and every public record resource and petition to have this changed. Unfortunately, it’s not a simple process.

    1. We will make sure to forward this public record correction to our database resources. Please let us know if there are any additional incorrect public records that we can assist you with correcting.

    1. Thank you for the updated public record information. We will update our phone number records accordingly.

  16. I need help. I don’t know who to talk to or what to do. Somehow my “public record” has become confused with someone else. I was denied a bank account bc I couldn’t prove I was me. Even though I pay Equifax, Experian and TransUnion ALL monthly fees for credit monitoring, it doesn’t matter. These aren’t credit questions. (What is Mr X’s birthday… I’ve no idea who he is. Which of the following addresses ha e you lived at? Umm none. Etc).

    When happened with Asurion I asked WHO they got the questions from. No one all the way up the chain of command could answer.

    When it happened with chase, no one could answer.

    When it happened with PNC, no one could answer.

    When it happened with quicken rocket mortgage, no one could answer.

    How can I fix it if I don’t know where it comes from?!? I took your advice and went to the police dept. They said since it wasn’t verifiable identity theft there was nothing they could do about it.

    I called Equifax. God as my witness they asked me questions to verify my identity and I FAILED! Either way, they claim they don’t generate the questions.

    Experian says they don’t generate the questions.

    TransUnion says they don’t generate the questions.

    1. This is a very unfortunate situation Melanie, there are a couple of possibilities here. First, your identity has been stolen and your good name is being used by someone else. Second, your public record is confused with someone else. A good way to determine what is happening is verifying your social security number and/or driver’s license number and date of birth. If all of these are the same then it’s likely that your identity has been stolen. If this is the case then you want to contact all the relevant credit agencies and your banks to let them know you’re a victim of identity theft.

      You can also contact the FTC to file a report and get helpful advise on how to handle your identity being stolen. Their toll free phone number is: 1-877-382-4357

      What To Do If My Identity Is Stolen

      1. Notify credit agencies, banks and credit card companies
      2. Place a fraud alert on your credit report
      3. Document all known credit fraud accounts
      4. Put a freeze on getting new credit on your credit report
      5. Contact the police and fill out a police report
      6. Send the relevant agencies a copy of the police report
      7. Contact the FTC and file a report of identity theft

  17. Angelica Fernandez isnt her last name or related to me , please take her and all her Araujo family members off as soon as possible also take off Angelica Rose Araujo

    1. We are happy to correct this incorrect public record for you. That being said, you will want to reach out to all the public record websites as this is what is reported by many public record websites. That being said, also make sure that this public record is for the correct person. Many times people have the same first, last and middle names if they’re common. A good way to verify your public record is by the birth date or a marriage record. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance in correcting an incorrect public record for you.

  18. Hi— me again.

    I followed your advice. But the police found no evidence of identity theft. No accounts have been opened in my name that aren’t mine, we checked all 3 credit bureaus. We also ran a nationwide background check to make sure no one has arrested and used my info. We checked with insurance companies (I guess they have their own ‘credit’ system) as well as short term lending companies (payday loan places and rent to own places).

    (Let me take a moment to commend the police dept that spwnt a lot of time with me checking these things… a detective took the time to really make sure I hadn’t been a victim and I really appreciated that).

    So, now what? How do I fix it? Who do I call?

    I thank you for your guidance up to this point. (If you don’t know, I understand. Seems no one does…)

    1. Melanie, it seems you have done your homework and it’s perplexing. We don’t have any advise we can offer but wish you the best of luck in your efforts.

  19. Kristina M Hazelton is not me and has never been me. She is attached to Kristin M Hazelton. I have never lived in any PA locations. How do I removed her from my public records?

    1. We are happy to remove you public record from our public records website however, you will want to reach out to any state agency that has reported your incorrect public record to mitigate this. Additionally, you will want to reach out to the other various public record website to have your incorrect public record fixed.

  20. I got denied a apartment because it\’s public records saying that I was locked up in another state I was only locked up in Illinois Cook County 2003 September it has other record not even mine how can I get that removed off

    1. We are happy to assist you with removing an incorrect public record from our database if you can confirm the record and state where this incorrect record is located. That being said, you will also want to reach out to the relevant county courthouse where this record is said to exist and confirm that this is not in error. It is also possible that there is more than one person with your same name that has a criminal record. Typically we need to verify these types of public records with a date of birth, residence history or possible relatives.

    1. Thank you for reaching out about how to correct incorrect public records. Your request has been sent to our public record database experts to update. Please allow a few days for the updated public record to be updated.

  21. -When I request a correction to Gov’t records, I like to site the Code (law) of authority including sub-paragraph (e.g.: Georgia state Code § 50-18-70 – Inspection of public records).
    ? Can anyone site the authority (code w/ subsection) that allows petition for correction of errors in public records (relevant to the requestor/owner)?
    – In this case the County Code Enforcement Office issued a Certificate of Occupancy (C.O.) for my single-family home as 4, but I can provide irrefutable evidence that my residence was marketed as 5 bedrooms, appraised & mortgaged as 5 BR. Furthermore, the inspector from code enforcement noted on inspection paper work that it should be 5 BRs, but notes from builder on page 1 of submission for C.O., stated ‘make 4 BRs + bonus room.
    -C.O. with number of BRs dictates the size of septic system.
    -I believe the number of BRs is a significant factor in the resale value of the residence (the septic system size directly correlates to the number of BRs).

    1. It sounds like there could be a precedence for this situation in the state of Georgia. Unfortunately correcting these incorrect public records is out of our expertise. It might be in your best interest to contact a Georgia legal professional in real estate industry and see if there is a way you can mitigate this incorrect public record.

      Best Regards – Team

  22. My physical address is incorrect therefore if I use it on the computer to validate my physical address it always says its incorrect!!!!!
    The map has it as Charley Breeden Road, Shady Springs THATS INCORRECT. My correct address is 202 Charley Breeden Road, Cool Ridge, WV 25825

    1. Thanks for the feedback on How to Correct Incorrect Public Records , we can certainly assist you with updating your address in our public records database. That being said, if you are noticing this incorrect public record on other websites such as Yellow-Pages or White-Pages you will need to reach out to them separately. It’s sometimes the case that the public record that we all pull data from is incorrect so that means you will want to reach out to as many different public record and government websites that host this information. Unfortunately we are not affiliated with any other public record website so you will need to reach out to the administrators of those public record websites independently to mitigate this incorrect record. It should be pretty simple for most websites to update your physical address. You might also want to verify this is you and not someone else as it is often the case that there are multiple people with the same first and last, and even middle names.

      That being said, please let us know all the incorrect public records you see that need to be updated and we’ll correct them ASAP for you. Also check our ” Whose Number Is This ” blog post and verify this is your correct phone number

      Verify My Public Record Is Accurate

      When verifying a public record is accurate, first make sure that you’re looking at the correct public record for the correct person. This can be verified by a birth date, a middle name, an address or a marriage record. Then if there is still an inaccuracy with your public record then contact the referring website or agency to fix and correct any inaccuracies to insure your public record is accurate. Government websites might need a photo ID to verify your public record before making any changes

    1. Your concern is a common one Jon. Unfortunately, you will need to contact each and every public record website to update your information. It’s uncertain where every public record website obtains their information. You might consider contacting the phone number directories first, such as the white pages and/or yellow pages if it’s a business listing.

      That being said Jon, if you would like us to correct an incorrect public record on please give us the relevant information and we’ll do our best. Sound good?

      Best of Luck Jon in correcting an incorrect public record

  23. I get phone calls constantly for the same person… About 7 or 8 every day… So finally I looked it up on Google and found that my phone number is incorrectly listed under her name! Who do I contact to correct this so I can stop receiving these phone calls?

    1. In order to correct this incorrect public record you will need to determine what phone number directory, or database, this is listed under (i.e. Google Directories, Facebook, WhitePages, etc..). Then you will need to reach out to them and request to have your information changed or removed.

  24. I am appalled by much of the information on my public record. Unfortunately I have a daughter named after me and over the years her negative information ends up on my record. For this reason I have had bill collectors calling me or writing to me about her debts. She even appears as living at my address and I appear in hers. This is absolutely ridiculous, you\’d think our SS#s would be looked at before posting this publicly. I need to make many corrections here since even her in laws appear as my relatives. How can I do that?

    1. Unfortunately this is a commonly reported situation for many people with the same names who reside in the same state and county. Since your situation is a bit more unique, being it’s your daughter with the same name, it’s a bit more complicated. Many public record websites get their resources from different larger data aggregators. Additionally, many non FCRA public record websites do not report the SSN with the name. Many times results are filtered by relatives, addresses and DOB. That being said you will probably need to reach out to each of the different websites that have your public information reported incorrectly and have them change it for you. We are happy to do this for you on our website and remove your information.

  25. All the web sites show people that are Relatives of mine, but are not, and a few places I have lived I have never lived! How can I fix this?

    Thank you very much

    1. There are a couple ways to go about doing this but first realize that some people have the same first and last name so verify that you’re looking at your information. That begin said, in order to correct these incorrect public records you will need to reach out to each website independently and request to have your information updated. This is a tedious process so you might want to start with the large public record data providers. The other way is to hire a service to go out and do this for you. If the incorrect public records are damaging your reputation in any way it might be worth considering this option.

  26. My prior address’s are showing up on my families public records for places they have lived how do I fix that

    1. Daryn, if there are incorrect public records listed in our database for places you’ve lived then we are happy to change those for you. That being said, our public records repository might not be the only database that has this information so you will want to also reach out to each individual resource and request to have these public records changed.

      To correct any incorrect public record in our public records database, please give us your full name and state of residence as well as what public records you would like us to correct. We are happy to assist you

  27. I signed a plea agreement for an A misd.
    Court records show it as F6 FELONY..

    1. We are sorry to hear this Sheila, typically it’s up to the courts to change this incorrect public record however since they won’t this seems unfair. It would seem that you could petition your housing commission to accept the updated court document you have even though it shows a different record on your court record. Hopefully you will be able to find a lawyer that will help you otherwise we don’t have any additional advise we an give you. Best of luck

  28. I was talking to a creditor trying to pull on public information half of the information is incorrect. some of The address is Incorrect my vehicles are incorrect my addresses some of them are incorrect
    It’s like they have two different people information on the same profile

    1. John, that’s not an uncommon problem with incorrect vehicle records. An example of this would be if the vehicle was previously owned and the title information has not been updated on that vehicle record was incorrectly updated. Please let us know how we can be of assistance.

    1. We are happy to assist you with correcting an incorrect death record. Can you provide more information about this person as there are a multitude of people with the same name in the United States. We’ll also need his age, state of residence as well as his full middle name.

  29. I am being BOMBARDED with texts and calls from realtors and house flippers wanting to purchase a property that is NOT mine, owned by someone else. Somehow my cell phone number that I’ve had for about 15 years has shown up as his. How do I get this fixed?? I believe my number is incorrectly listed as his on several public search sites – a daunting task to have to contact them all individually. Is there no “one-stop shop” to rectify this problem?

    1. Your issue with having an incorrect public record of your phone number is quite common and unfortunately information get’s changed with contact information regularly and there are a multitude of mix-ups because of this. That being said, you will need to contact many of the popular public record websites independently to do this. One of the large date providers that distributes phone number information is Lexus Nexis. That might be a good starting place to change your phone number. We are also happy to change your information on our site if you give us the update information along with your gull name and age and state of residence. Please email us @ to execute these incorrect public record changes

  30. My husband and I have been married since November 2017 and not only does it not show anywhere in public record that we’re married, it shows someone as his spouse that he has never been married to

    1. Dawn, we are happy to correct any incorrect public record for you in our member’s area. Please provide us with the updated information, including the full names of the persons married and the date and we can update our system.

  31. My Verizon mobile phone number comes up with another person’s name on all the various search engines. I cannot give my mobile number to a potential date because they can\’t verify who I am and thus won\’t text me. It has cost me two potential relationships already. I have called Verizon and White Pages and they were no help. Do I have any options other than a new mobile number. I have had this one for 20 years and if would incredibly difficult to change

    1. Michael, your concern is not uncommon. An incorrect phone number listing can definitely cause problems. Unfortunately not all websites get their phone number information from the same sources and some of those resources are dated as well. From our experience, you will need to contact each website independently and request to have this information updated or removed. It is very difficult to change some public records and unfortunately a phone number listing is one of them.

    1. Lydia, how can we assist you with an incorrect public record? We are happy to make any corrections in our database resources if they are incorrect but to insure this is the case with other online public record websites you will need to reach out to them individually. That being said, many people have the same name and your name looks to be very common depending on how your middle name is listed in the criminal record you’re looking at. We are here to help

  32. Public records has my phone number as the one I had when I was 18yrs almost 20 yrs ago .My credit card company cant verify me because of this and the address that public records has is wrong so they have a hold on it so what can I do to change this as quickly as possible it already has been weeks and its comeing up to the holidays now and it dosnt look like my kids will have much if any of a Christmas if I cant fix this problem

    1. Lance, it’s going to be difficult to figure out what data resource your credit card company is accessing to verify your identity. You can request that they use a different means to verify your identity such as a driver’s license or SSN or birth certificate. This is typically what CC companies use instead of an email address or phone number to verify an identity if there is an issue.

    1. Dyanna, thank you for reaching out about how to correct your incorrect public records. We will submit these changes to our database and make the necessary updates.

  33. My age displays incorrectly on most sites, and I\’m not sure how to fix this.

    It says I am 32, 33, 34, or 75. When I am actually 28. The relatives/towns are usually correct, so I know it\’s my record.

    1. John, your request has been made before about correcting these types of incorrect public records. Since you have a very common first and last name the ages, and sometimes other information, can be misplaced when it’s report and gathered from various public record resources. That being said, you will want to reach out to each website independently to make the correction to your public record. If you provide us with your full name, age and state of residence we are happy to update your public record in our resources.

  34. has information saying that my home is in an active foreclosure and it is not. Also My name is Lisa F. Love and they mix Lisa A. Love up with me and this has happened before and she had a huge lien on her credit. It has my current address on there. I don’t want people knowing my address. It can be so unsafe.

    1. It would seen that you will need to resolve the case directly with and make the necessary changes to the foreclosure record. You might also want to run a credit check on yourself, though, to see if this foreclosure is actually on your credit report. As far as the publicly available information, such as your name and address, this is unfortunately public record which means that anyone can view that information via the FOIA of 1966.

  36. Public Records list incorrect information about my address and my phone number and people who currently live at my address who don’t live at my address, I know these are common problems but, the current covid-19 pandemic prevents contact with my local public records department to update my personal contact information. Sadly with cutback of hours and staff it’s proving difficult to get these problems resolved. Please help me to clean up the errors on my contact information.
