Hacker? or Lawyers?

OK, so I'm new here, so firstly i would like to say hello!


To the point though...

Lets say some one had information or content on their website which was damaging to ones profile.

You knew you could seek legal advice to get it removed, however this may not be the most time/cost effective.

Your' second option is to get a hacker to remove this content or whatever happens in teh digital hacking world.

What has a higher price or effort factor involved?

Getting a hacker to do it would be illegal, risky, costly, and not fool proof. So a lawyer would be the best option.

If you take away the illegal aspect of it, it's the same as being a lawyer.

Or you can just ask them to remove such info.

If just asking was going to work I don't think he'd need a lawyer or hacker. Also, a lawyer might be costly but hiring a hacker would probably cost near as much.

is there any way to fight against sites that do not remove your name from their sites such as people search sites?

I was thinking about just searching for the employees of the company and calling their personal phones or emails because no one from the "contact" page of the site is responding to either phone or email.

specifically, i've been trying to get my name off of dis one site unsuccessfully after several attempts for a while now.

First off, please make another thread next time rather than bringing back an already dead one.

On topic, however...

To fight against it? Sure, there's lots of ways. To fight against it legally? You might want to talk to a lawyer about that.

Probably not the best idea, as this could be easily misconstrued as harassment and get you in legally trouble.

Their business is to find people, or to have information on as many people as possible; I doubt you'll be able to get them to remove your information easily.
