DPPA does not apply to banks, mortgage companies, debt collection companies, asset recovery companies and many others. DPPA is a joke. Your license plate info, VIN info, DMV info, criminal history and just about everything else you can think of is public information. Some things you have to state you have an exemption, but there's nothing stopping anyone from finding out just about everything they want to know about you. Just for fun, Google License Plate Search.
