Jigsaw Is a Really, Really Bad Idea

Mike Arrington on Jigsaw, a site that resells detailed personal contact information for over 2.5 million people:

[…] Jigsaw simply pays people to upload other people’s contact information. Users are paid $1 for every contact they upload, and some users have uploaded information on tens of thousands of people.


There appears to be no way to remove your own contact information from Jigsaw once someone has entered it into their database.

What a bunch of scumbags.
