In addition, its important to not be too paranoid. I feel like so much of this paranoia comes from wanting to dress up as Jeffrey Epstein, but the reality is that things are moving so fast that the likelihood of you getting screwed is very very small. That being said, I am still going to double check all of my data just in case

There are services like DeleteMe and Optery that will essentially do this for you. You provide this information to those services, they see if they can locate any/all of the information and request it be removed from all the services they cover. In addition, they will follow up and re-request removal of data if they re-add your information, for as long as you subscribe to them. However... there is risk because you are giving these companies so much personal data... if they get hacked... it's out there as well in a greater/higher quality amount.
