"Truthfinder" seems to be another tool for "spectator spying" on people

Here’s a story about another “background investigation” tool, called “Truthfinder” , on AOL news.

It seems to comprise an uber-compilation of public records about a person, but I don’t know how reliable it is, or whether it picks up the wrong person sometimes.

I don’t look people up on these sites ordinarily.  I don’t spy on people out of “curiosity” or as a “spectator sport”. The only exception would be if the person were going to be housed or employed by me.  But then, who should bear the moral hazard for any inaccurate information on a site like this. I guess the other person could find out you had looked him up by joining.
