Hi everyone. Hopefully what I write here will save you some time and aggravation.

I tried manually removing my private information from this stupid familytreenow site, and it would not let me because it could not "locate" the information that it was showing about me. Ridiculous. So I emailed them and politely requested they remove my information. I received no response. So I emailed them again, with the same request. No response. Then a third time I emailed them. No response. I gave up for a while.

Then suddenly I had an idea; why not file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (which gives them a richly-deserved rating of "F"!). Lo and behold, the BBB intervened and resolved this problem within 48 hours.

So I would encourage all of you: don't fret, and don't waste your time contacting familytreenow. Just go directly to the BBB (https://www.bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get-started) and file a complaint.

It works!

Your company listed Tanya Bryant aka Tonya Bryant aka LaTonya Bryant as our family member! She's a suspect in Vicki L Tolbert's identity theft case shes NOT Related to my family!!And the other people on her family tree are NOT Related to us or my uncle James Manley Tolbert! I guess your company just wants to sell people information so bad you don't care that your website has wrong information and linking people family members with criminals and FAKE Family members!

VERY displeased with the results. Very vague as to the regions of origin.
We called and were told that they only can do general regions and everyone else's analysis is wrong.
What a waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So just so you understand. I was using this DNA testing to double check another DNA testing company. This is a good idea too. So they send me the results back showing that I am from Western Europe, who would have known that. I mean a white person in America? No specifics like German, French, Italian, etc they did say I was partly from the British isles. Nothing like English, scotch, irish etc. So I questioned them and they made claims that the irish are not distinguishable from English. A total lie, other DNA companies have that ability. So then she said they didn't so there you are, they are selling DNA testing that can't distinguish within a region. So if you are an Asian they can't tell if you are Chinese or Japanese. If you are black, yep you are from Africa (but don't ask which country). Save your money and stay away.

I have an unlisted landline, different address on driver's license, so where and how are they obtaining their information? Posing illegally as a bill collector and going through the post office or utility companies perhaps? I will not stop until they are shut down and sued. Tap their paychecks for the rest of their life or put them in prison with the death penalty. they are the lowest form of scum our society has to offer.

Information is incorrect. Relatives with the wrong middle initial or birth.DAY. Numerous people listed as relatives that certainly are not. What a crappy scam website to make a few bucks by placing people in danger from identity theft, stalkers and worse. Their opt out is another scam that does not work. The Attorneys General at state and federal level should put an end to this crap. Wonder if they have any money for an attorney to get? I'll bet not.

I accidentally went on the site and paid money. My information was somewhat correct. After I contacted them to take me off the monthly automatic debit from my account, suddenly another address showed up with two arrests. Not only have I never lived or even visited that state, I have never been arrested anywhere. There is no way to opt out (there used to be) nor correct errors. Stay away from this site!

FamilyTreeNow.com posts personal information without soliciting that information or permission or corrections from the subject. It claims, however, that one can opt-it if one finds, somehow, the FamilyTreeNow.com page that has been imposed on her/him. And the opt-out seems to work IF there is a live opt-out button on the page. But if not, as in my case, there is no way to opt-out. Pleas to customer service to manually eliminate my page have met with this response over and over: "If you would like your information removed please go to the link below and follow the steps." But those steps mandate using the opt-ot button.

According to Business Insider this site simply provides publicly available records. I found my records to be accurate and I chose to opt out, which only took a few clicks.

I ran across them too. My only suggestion on getting them out of the Internet is to complain to Google and other Search Engines
This is their Registar
egistrar: Google Inc.
Registrar IANA ID: 895
Registrar Abuse Contact Email: registrar-abuse[at]google.com
Registrar Abuse Contact Phone: +1.877-237-6466

There is a problem in that the website is located in New Zealand. So they are a bit removed from any complaints not originating in the USA. I would suggest complaining to Google and other Search Engines to that their information will be removed from the searches.

I researched familytreenow.com and found out the owner of this site is also the owner of Datehookup.com is Dustin R. Weirich. His nickname on the site is merely 鈥淒ustin鈥? Mr. Weirich also incorporated a business in California on August 30, 2004 called Search Floor, Inc. The registered address for this internet related business is 117 Lost Oak Court, Roseville, CA, 95661. This address is believed to be his home address.

Apparently this Dustin R. Weirich character runs several scams including familytreenow.com. There are number of complaints on several complaint boards and all over the web and this Dustin person is named in almost every compliant. The websites are definitely unsafe and you could risk getting hacked and possibly ope yourself to more than one virus and losing all your information.

familytreenow.com is a scam genealogy website. Stalkers are allowed to maliciously add and share any personal records and private information about a person even if it is inaccurate.

Don't trust this site. Every time someone writes a complaint in familytreenow.com facebook page or on the web they ends up taking it down. Even on their facebook page, if you leave a negative comment they will immediately take it down.

Nothing is free. This is how scammers usually get people hooked. They use bait words like, "free." Why would this website pay money to create a website and take precious time out of their lives to publicly post millions of personal records and private information that doesn't even belong to them?

FAMILYTREENOW.com is a scam genealogy website.They will take your information and publicly post it without your consent to the internet and sell it to anyone even other identity thieves and you won't ever see a dime.

As long as these thieves can make money off you, they will continue to do so. In my case, my stalkers (sister & brother team – Amy Lynette N. and Michael Alan D.) shared my personal information WITHOUT my consent on this genealogy website as a tool to harass, stalk and seek revenge. How do I know it is them? The tracks they have left behind and keep leaving behind. It's been over 2 years now. SMH

Regardless, this website should be held accountable and not allow psychotic nut jobs to add someone else personal and private records without their consent. Genealogy websites claim they get your information from other public databases which is not all true, (pay attention to the wording in their terms and privacy policy…what a joke!)

Anyone can add your personal information in several ways. One way is by downloading a special type of software to build a family tree, add all your personal data to that family tree then share it with these identity thieving websites which they will end up selling it to anyone. Another way is by going to these genealogy websites and starting up a family tree simply by adding your name and your personal data and anyone else data they want to include, even if it's inaccurate. How do I know all this? Again, the tracks both stalkers keep leaving behind.

If you request to have your personal data removed, like I have, they should honor it and remove it, but they won't. If they refuse to remove your personal info, you should file a complaint with your state attorney general, Federal Trade Commission, FBI, law enforcement and Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3.) The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).I've already filed complaints and reports against these websites and my stalkers.

Love it! Finally a real free website. Finding your relatives is work but it is much easier when you aren't feeling pressured by having to pay for the use of the information.
