it's incredible...

The Internet is a POWERFUL megasource of information, if you
only know WHERE to look. I tell you how to find out nearly
ANYTHING about anybody, and tell you exactly where to find it!

You will be amazed to find out what PERSONAL information
other people can find out about YOU! Check your credit report
so you can correct WRONG information that may be used to
deny you credit.

Research YOURSELF first! You'll be horrified, as I was, at
how much data has accumulated about you.

If you believe (like I do) that the information that is
stored about EACH ONE OF US should be freely accessible,
you'll want to see the SNOOP COLLECTION I've compiled.
Verify your own records, or find out what you need
to know about others.

And my huge collection is ONLY THE BEGINNING! Once you locate
these FREE private, college and government web sites, you'll
find even MORE links to even MORE information search engines!

I'm telling you, it's incredible what you can find out using
the internet!
