Knowing where you live allows everyone to make assumptions as to your income, criminal associates, investments, number of children, number of cars, much of your lifestyle, and even travel plans. Because of the neighborhood, they can make guesstimates as to your education, income, habits, mortgage obligations, and friends. This allows reviewers to offer products that might interest you. Offers to install siding, install new garage doors, better windows, carpeting, jacuzzi and pool supplies to the wealthy, and high interest rate payday loans to the poor classes.
