Is it all "made up" or do they actually get some data from the law?
    It's meant to make fun of the idea of felon-tracking, because of the data-mining issues with keeping up with millions of people's current addresses. If you notice, it also links to similar sites, like this one that promotes dog fighting as a business opportunity.

    It would have been nice if Magicman had known that.

    I agree. Maybe I'll start doing Snopes checks a bit more from now on. Thanks for the advice. :)

    I hope you did not take that personally. I just think that it helps to question the information you receive until you verify its authenticity. Not saying to be a cynic, but nevertheless, just be more careful.

    My favorite one has to be the old classic about AIDS needles on gas pump handles. It's a chain email sent around, warning of the dangers of infected needles stuck into gas pump handles. Most often, it's set in Jacksonville, and has lots of information from the "Jacksonville Police Department". That's great, but we don't have a "Police Department". Our boys and girls in blue are the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. I've lived here my entire life and have yet to encounter a single needle stuck to a gas pump handle.

    I tried and get different names and crimes every time. I think that we we need to reevaluate things for ourselves and not blindly trust the internet.

What we ARE/WERE required to do is to let our clients know that they have the right to research this themselves. Too bad, though, that I never had a client do the research on their own and come back and tell me what they found. I'm not surprised, just sad!
    That's why you always do your own due diligence. Las Vegas is the only city where you're a few blocks away from a lawyer, mortgage agent, realtor or prostitute and sometimes it's very difficult to tell the difference and sometimes they're one in the same.
    BTW, only sex offenders are required to register in California under Megan's Law. No other felons are required to register in that state, as far as I know. Do other convicted felons have to register in other states, areas?
    Megan's or Aimee's Law is federal. All States have publicly accessible sex offender registries.
