BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Spokeo.com is a people finder website that lists detailed information about individual backgrounds including; addresses, siblings, salary, credit scores, pictures of your house and much more.  There is currently a movement throughout Facebook to warn people about this website.

We talked to Russ Runfola, owner of La Dolce Vita on Hertel Ave. in North Buffalo, who says he was shocked to see that his name, address, picture of his home and even salary were listed on the website.  Runfola called Spokeo to have his information removed and was told to send a copy of his drivers license.  He asked the Spokeo rep to remove it immediately and Runfola says, the rep hung up on him.

2 On Your Side called Spokeo.com to request an interview but our calls were not returned.
