for several years now and your concerns are the exact reason why.
I have to confirm my first and last name; home city and state. It is good for the provider but not for the client.
I live actually live in a smaller town but travel to a bigger city for fun. I also have an uncommon name that nobody in my town shares.
A simple Google search will lead a provider right to my office door, the driveway of my house, give her information about my family, value of my house, my net worth, annual earnings and so forth. That is not for me.
My suggestion is to join P411. More expensive but some anonymity and peace of mind is well worth the cost. As an added bonus, the features P411 offers are incomparable to other verification sites.
