Another OSD purchaser (I forget the name, I'm not sure if they posted here or on the Facebook group) mentioned a Google search for their name pulling up a URL in the form http://www.importgenius.com/importers/first-last (first-last being their first DASH last names in lower case).

Of course I had to plug in the URL myself once my car arrived. Of course it is a teaser trying to get you to buy their service for a minimum of $99/month. I tried the online sales-chat and had a nice exchange with the company.

Apparently, when you purchase OSD, Volvo imports the car into the US in your name (rather than VCNA). As a result, this company is publishing your record. According to the person I chatted with, they only want to show company importers and that the record was probably marked incorrectly (as corporate).

I'm not complaining; I figure just about anything I do related to immigration/importation would be public information. I'm just sharing. You can go and find your record.

They offered to remove my record for me. I mentioned not caring so they did. I just confirmed the link http://www.importgenius.com/importers/david-horvath does not work.

Well we sure showed up loud and clear. Took all of three seconds to find that record. I think I'll be calling to get it removed. They don't show a record from twelve years ago when we imported our last SUV from Canada to the US to save big money.

Edit: Sent an email through the Chat link on the web page. They removed it right away.
