Browsing Realty Trac and some other site a client had enlightened me to, I had decided to type in my own street name to see if anyone in my neighborhood was behind on their mortgage. Then it dawned on me "How embarrassing this is for homeowners". I found that one of my neighbors down the street was in foreclosure....WOW......quite surprised because you'd never know by the way they decorated for Christmas and smile whenever you see them.
Then the worst part of what I discovered was how these sites let you click on a map to see where the house is located. So I clicked on the map and it almost appeared that the little red dot seemed to be sitting right in front of my house......................OMG.
I was so mad I wanted to complain but didn't know who to complain to.
Much of this is very upsetting. These sites actually tell you how much the people owe, how far they are behind, etc.......along with making the public think it's your home because the map is incorrect.
Anyway, can someone explain to me why "privacy policies" are not enforced with people's mortgage delinquencies?
Especially in today's troubled economy, I think that thousands of people shouldn't have the fact that they are behind on their mortgage plastered all over the internet. Enlighten me please!
