FastPeopleSearch is a data broker with suspicious origins. Their website claims they are from Boston, but a quick background check reveals that Fast People Search is most likely an entity that operates overseas.
FastPeopleSearch is unique because they’re an entirely free data broker. They reveal names, exact street addresses, phone numbers, and family connections to anyone on the internet. This makes them particularly dangerous.
FastPeopleSearch is a favorite tool of solicitors and scammers who can easily look up your information via a reverse address lookup or reverse phone search. Our research found that removing your information from Fast People Search can significantly reduce the chances of spam calls and unwanted messages.
