[Question] Crossing into the US border, how do…

Leaving it is not an option, nor is getting a burner phone. Is there a way that I can give them access to a fake profile?

Anyway to remove phone number information off …

So I just googled my phone number and the first link showed an uncomfortable amount of information. My address, full name, relatives, age, educational status, and occupancy. Is there anyway to remove it or do I just need a new number? Also, I don’t have any social media accounts and I rarely give out my number. I can’t give the details on why I’m being paranoid about it, but it involves my personal safety.

I have tried searching up friend’s phone numbers in Google just to experiment and almost all of them don’t trace their number to their name/address/relatives/income/etc.

I just dont understand why mine does, I think someone in my family has signed up for a viral website or something because it has all of our information and all of my relatives’ addresses/income/occupation/etc all by searching up one of our numbers.

I have been contacted by a company repeatedly …

I engaged with a US-based company for a service. I made it clear to the salesperson that it is interesting, but we simply don’t have the budget for it. So maybe 6 months down the line it’s worth exploring.

2 weeks later I received an email from his VP of sales saying he’ll throw in some freebies and how he looks forward to having me on board. I ignored.

3 days after that (on a Sunday) the original salesperson sends me an email saying how I’m one of his best opportunities for this month/quarter and if I’d like to speak on Monday or Tuesday.

On Monday when I got to the office, I sent him an email saying that we will not be purchasing for a very long time. If at all we want to purchase, I will get in touch with him. I categorically asked that I do not want to be contacted by him or anyone at his company yet again.

6 hours later, I received another email that didn’t address anything I said but simply spoke of another feature. I ignored.

It’s Wednesday, and I’ve received yet another email about some success story and how he has me in his calendar for a call at 2pm.

I feel harassed. Do I have any rights as a European resident? The company has no office in Europe.

I’m trying to avoid getting a second physical phone so I’ve been looking into apps like Burner or Sideline. Would either of those work for SMS verification? If not, does any other app/software do that?
