Your Full Name,
'Part 1 - The 'Reason' category you are looking for this person.,
'Part 2 - Person's Details (information)
A Web hyper link to your contact page which you are about to create here on Who? Me?.
(see 'Part 3' above - checked boxes).
Advantages?: From this one posting, you have a positive means to broadly
publish your search information in more places on the Internet, combined with a
positive means of controlling/turning off the public's ability to contact you at
any point in the future. When you are done with the service just delete this
note and it is over... the link from your posted note on the Internet to you is
broken. Disadvantages?: This gives you a wider public audience and a corresponding larger number of
possibley unwelcomed solicitions from people finding investigators (Free and Paid). Since
your contact information is not on the actual note that we publish, people may complain about
their having to click on a web link to get to your contact page here on Who? Me?, in order
to contact you.
