My mugshot is from over 10 years ago and due to traffic violations.  I paid all my fines in 2002.  I have been employed with the same company since then but now that I am ready to seek a new employer I fear if they see my mugshot it will put me in a bad light even if they see I have paid my fines and have not gotten anything but speeding tickets and failure to provide proof of insurance/registration.  This company is immoral for charging to remove public information from a private website.  

If you have been affected by one of these online mugshot companies, please file a claim with the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commision and the Attorney General.  The only "business" that should show mugshots should be the county court or jails.  Also, join a class action lawsuit.  Private companies should not be profitting off public information.

Bizarre Logic and Reasoning

If kidnappers called the ransom amount the returning person fee would it bedazzle the system again? If the kidnappers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system be mystified by them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of kidnapping someone hence they are entitled to the returning person fee (Ransom Money).

 

If blackmailers called the extortion amount the unpublish/reputation repair fee would it bedazzle the system? Further, if the blackmailers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system by mystified be them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of stealing government property, identity theft, stalking people, holding people to involuntary servitude, injuring their reputation and collecting an unlawful debt hence they are entitled to the fee (extortion).
