So this one site I'm a free member of tells you when someone else searches for you by name.  My name is pretty rare (the first name is spelled differently than the "normal" spelling, and my last name is an obscure French name), so it's pretty likely that anyone looking for someone with the exact same first/last name combo is looking for me.  

I just got a notification that someone is searching for me.  All I can see about them is their age & location, and both of those are close enough to my own stats to make me think that it IS someone I know.  Should I spend the $30 for a membership to find out who the hell it is, or should I just worry & wonder forever?  (BTW, to those who would think it's a scam or ploy to get me to buy a membership- I joined the site a while ago (6+ months?) and have never gotten a notification like that before, so it's pretty likely that there really is someone looking for me.)  I've got the money, it won't hurt me to spend it... and as a member, I can use the people search function a little more in depth myself.

Have you ever used a site to search for "lost" friends/loved ones?  How'd that turn out for you?
