Makelia.com is now back

Makelia.com no longer directs to FindBackgroundReports.com. It is still Makelia.com. I was able to remove my info from Makelia.com by submitting the unique ID in the Opt Out section. I am hoping this will be a permanent removal because previously when I had my info removed from Makelia.com, it reappeared months later, which was very annoying and upsetting. I also hope that Johan Fourie has learned that when he ignores removal requests, people get extremely angry and will post negative reviews about his websites and about him, and that his online reputation is negatively affected. Why is someone in South Africa creating a website that deals with the information of Americans? That does not seem right at all.

I hope the removal process does work because I have been waiting about 6 months to have my info removed from PeepFind, then SpeedyHunt and now Makelia.

Makelia.com is now FindBackgroundReports.com

Makelia.com is now FindBackgroundReports.com. I don't know what Johan Fourie is doing but his website has again changed. At FindBackgroundReports, 5 different people search sites are listed: BeenVerified.com, TruthFinder.com, InstantCheckmate.com, SeekVerify.com, and SpyFly.com. So while personal info is not listed on FindBackgroundReports, they may be on the other sites. You would have to go to each site to check. I wouldn't be surprised if this is yet another trick by Johan Fourie to eventually create another site that posts the personally identifiable info of people. He is the last person who should be involved with this kind of site since he has repeatedly shown that he doesn't care about the privacy of others and has no intention of removing personal info.

Johan Fourie turns Speedy Hunt to Makelia

And continues to disregard the requests for removal of personal data with a fake non-performing opt out feature. After receiving several negative reviews on speedy hunt, and before that peep find, he now has makelia. Johan Fourie has ignored my 30 emails to remove my personal data. I am a victim of id theft and am in serious danger. The disregard of privacy rights is illegal. However, since Johan Fourie hides in Africa he has so far escaped the reach of legal remedies in the US or sanctions by US authorities. FBI should try to track him down. Better Business Bureau has tried to contact him with no success. Any opinions on how to bring down his malicious site?

Johan Fourie & Makelia.com do not care about anyone's privacy

I consider myself a private person. Johan Fourie thinks he has a right to post someone's personal info. I have a right to privacy. He is invading my privacy. What is so enraging and upsetting about Johan Fourie is how arrogant he is regarding someone's privacy. He doesn't care if personal info is freely available to anyone with online access. He doesn't seem to care if identity thieves, stalkers, scammers, fraudsters, etc. can take anyone's info from his various websites. If he really did care, he would make it very easy to remove the info. I have been waiting weeks now for my info to be removed. Johan Fourie shouldn't be creating these kinds of sites if he doesn't care about someone's privacy. How would Johan Fourie like it if his personal info was treated like this?

Speedyhunt is now Makelia

The website www.makelia.com exposes people’s private information on their site. They have an “opt out” email but they do not respond to requests to remove information from their site. They used to be called Speedyhunt and have now changed their name to Makelia. Same bad practice and fake/non existent removal options. They do not care about privacy rights. I have been the victim of identity theft and am in serious danger. They don’t respond to removal requests.

Now when you click on the Opt Out, it says "At present we are overwhelmed with opt out requests and are implimenting and automated removal system." Where have I heard this before? That's exactly what Johan Fourie said about opting out of SpeedyHunt.

Johan Fourie does not honor his own opt out policies. In other words, he is full of ***

Why doesn't Johan Fourie include an automated removal system in the first place when he is creating the website? Why do all of us have to wait who knows how long until the system is implemented? His lack of foresight indicates how unprofessional he is.
