Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your legal question this evening. I'm attorney Bill assisting you.

This is going to be a privacy issue and possibly a civil action for intrusion upon seclusion.

Because you have spoken tot he realtors you could write out to them yourself or through an attorney requesting the immediate take down of your personal information in the form of a take down demand letter.

You could sue for invasion of privacy, emotional distress , attorneys fees and court costs.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

I'm an independent legal expert and get a credit when you leave positive feedback today.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated.

Best

Attorney Bill
