I did a lot of gpt offers back then and I was stupid enough to use my real info. I used all of my correct information except I used a fake DOB. I am a teenager but I put an older age than I was. So obviously my information got sold by third party companies and I started receiving spam mail. I started to get worried when I started receiving mail that was restricted to age 21+ people, because all these companies think I am older than I actually am. Also, I searched myself on whitepages sites like zabasearch and whitepages.com and my information appears there and it displays my fake age. Can I do anything about my situation? :( I am really worried and I would appreciate the help a lot.

Note: I never gave out any SSN or Credit card stuff if it helps.

I know I can ask them to take me off their list, but what I am really concerned about is that I used a fake age and now all these companies think I am older than I actually am. Could this affect me in any way or should I just stop worrying about it?

Well, did you put in a SSN, also using real info could really mess up your life. I mean, now you can get a bunch of mail to your house.

I never gave out SSN and I used real info except my DOB. Also, I get a piece of spam mail like once every 2 weeks, surprisingly.

Well you can't do nothing because everybody's information is somewhere online they why its is possible for online company's to do background checks on people.

lol I use my legit info and nothing has happened to me and I have completed around 500 offers total so far. The worst I got so far is spam e-mails.

My problem is that I used a fake age which kinda screws my situation up. I would be fine with the spam and everything if I used a legit DOB.

Call the company and tell them to change your age? Best I can think of. If they sell your info, then it will keep getting resold, and you can't do anything about that. Also, I don't really understand why your worried about that.
