    Vera @Vera2 Petts Wood updated 2 days ago

    I posted this a few years ago but many of you may not have seen it.
    It is very easy, for me and others, to find your personal details and your address and phone number could be one of the easiest. You may have already removed some of your information but if you have not or have moved home, you should check again and start with 192.com.
    If you are listed, you need to fill the "Removal of Personal Data from 192.com" form. No need to join or subscribe. You will get an email to which you should reply to confirm removal and your personal details will be removed.
    https://www.192.com/c01/new-request/
    This is only one way scammers and fraudsters find your details and there are many others.
