Chances are other websites must be doing the same if the first one I checked still has not updated their records. How can I ensure that ALL these private entities remove my information? Is there a large list? If so, will I need to send an email with my granted nondisclosure to each and every company?
Unfortunately, there are thousands of background checking companies. Many of them do not update very often. These companies must comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. You can not sue those companies unless and until you have had real monetary injury.

Those companies have to comply with the FCRA so I'd talk to a local credit repair attorney in the area. They'll be able to point your in the right direction and tell you if there's a case worth pursuing.
