To slow the crooks down, you can opt out of releasing your address on your airman certificates at faa.gov. For aircraft certification, you can change your aircraft registration address to a PO Box or some other non-descript location.
The FAA is completely irresponsible with personal and aircraft information. It's utterly bizarre to me that you can't lookup any info about the license plate of some random car or maybe the car that just cut you off, but the FAA shouts your info to the world.
