    This page checks if someone stole your identity, which is based on your email. It's a free service.

    While you're at it, PM me your bank details, and I`ll check it against my database to make sure I don't already have it

    I would appreciate it if you do that, the owner of the email address then will get an summery if his account/email/data are used on other platforms.

    It would be a sly trick to get people's emails, if it wasn't so easy to see thru it.

    Yet, Bat is spamming this present thread with his irrelevant off-topic remark. :p

    Yeah... looks great. An East German website... Who knows more about spying and collecting data, than they would....

    Even the impressum is very informative....

    To find out about your e-mail it is always great to give your e-mail adress to someone you know NOTHING about.


    Tell us: Has anyone independently confirmed, that that site is trustworthy?

    The page is secure and if you look at the FAQ and 'response e-mails' you would have known that it even uses a digital signature together with an explanation how the response email looks like.


    Collecting eMails via a page isn't really necessary, you simply could use a bot to send spam on each avaible letter combination and then add known email providers after the @-prefix. Besides this without a password your email is uninteresting.


    Identity theft is the problem.

    You mean "were" instead of "seem to be".

    I see no argument which makes you a target by posting your email address. It's designed to share. The FAQ also answers every question.
