Ok, there is an error in the below message. I called and had my name 
removed (if you call, you want option 4-other questions). I also asked a 
few questions of my own. They claim that "mother's maiden name" is

previous addresses (they had 3 out of 5 addresses for me, and two different 
name listings under the same S.S. number...). So it's up to you if you 
want to call or not. I don't care so much since mother's maiden name

800.543.6862, give them your Social Security number (to see if it's in the
database) and, if it is, ask them to remove your file from the database.
Lexis has given different answers to the different people who've called in,
but a common version given is that they're compiling a list of people
who want to be removed, and Lexis will remove those names within 30 days.
