Intelius in Fremont, New Hampshire - Yes, you do one backround check for 5 dollars and then they start charging you 20 dollars once a wee
This company is horrible. They should all go to jail. They provide your backround check and then extort once a week 20 dollars from your account and then refuse to refund it. Though you haven't signed up for any service. And they say you have. Ridiculous. They prey upon you saying you need to protect yourself by checking out who is going to work for you, then they rape you while you aren't even looking. Definately go to the BBB and FBI and tell all your business friendss on Twitter and facebook and any other communicative device you own.
Intelius is a rip off
I started to see monthly charges for $9.95 appearing on my credit. Called the company they promised to reverse the charge and stop billing me They keep the billing, called the credit card company who said they would credit me with ALL payments I made to Intelius, and would place all future charges from Intelius immediately into 'dispute' and reverse they charge. Call your credit card company and be sure they transfer you to their 'dispute department' who handle these type of problems, they will handle it for us Pass this information on the friends and neighbors to save them this problem

Recurring fraudulent charges by intelius
Intelius submits recurring fraudulent charges to your account on a monthly basiI used Intelius one time to purchase a "report." Since that time, the company has submitted numerous monthly charges to my bank without my knowledge or permission. There is no way to redress this situation; when you try to get in touch with someone from the company there is no way to reach them. And so the charges keep coming and coming with no recourse...and thats the way it goes. on and on and on. And the company does this to numerous other people, from what I see on the internet. They should be shut down if this contninues.
Intelius in Bakersfield, California - Invailed password
I began to open a new account with Intelius for a people account. Fortuneatly a minmum account. I did make an initial mistake. I typed in - (dash) instead of _ (underscore) not using the shift key. This is what I believed that I had done, when I proceeded to sign in. After this I attempted to check my possible mistake. To review my account. No matter what password I typed in, it would always indicate invalid password. correct password is email@example.com. I really just want the info. I tried today to just check the status of my account. No matter which password I attempted INVALID. I was using Intelius because previous attempt to find an individual, Intelius was the only successful completion. I will be watching my credit account. If I only am charged the $6.90, live and learn. I will call the credit card company, notifying them of not accepting ANY charged from Intelius !
Intelius in Athens, Texas - Made unauthorized charges to bank account.
I was looking for a free lookup for a phone number I had lost. Intelius had a .95 cent trial offer. I gave them my debit card number for the lookup. I went on line to check my statement and two charges were posted from Intelius. One for the agreed .95 cents and one for an unauthorized charge of $19.95. I never authorized this charge. I am working with my bank to reverse this charge and block any other charges from them and any other one of their "customers." The charges were posted to my account on 1/25/11. I can't understand how they can continue scamming people with all the complaints being logged against them.
Intelius has been unresponsive to my request to remove my personal information and any reference to my name from their website. They request "verification" of said personal information (including full name, address and birthdate) via a faxed copy of my drivers'...View full review
Intelius People Search
We paid $.95 for a one-time search on Intelius. The following month we noticed a $9.95 charge to our checking account. We called to cancel. She said she could NOT refund the money but would send an e-mail with a link giving us 10 free searches. Never used them. Deleted the E-mail. That was a big mistake because apparently the fine print that goes along with those 10 "FREE" searches stated that we would have to call and cancel the membership AGAIN in 30 days or we would be charged a reduced monthly rate of $9.95 thereafter. My husband, who manages the checkbook, assumed I decided to keep the service. TEN MONTHS LATER... Their records verify that: 1) I canceled the membership once. 2) I was sent an E-mail giving me 10 free searches. 3) I NEVER used their service after the initial $.95 search. We have NEVER used the membership and Intelius will not refund our money. BEWARE!! They are manipulative with the "free" offers and the fine print. If you use this service be very, very careful about the cancellation process.
I signed up for a 3 day trial of people search for $.95 and before I could see the results another page comes up and in order for you to see your results you have to click on accept not knowing you are signing up for another membership that they charge you $19.95 for...View full review
Intelius in Phoenix, Arizona - Scam artist
I was charged for three months $19.95 after looking up one phone number for $4.99. They said I signed up for a monthly 100 checks for the $19.95?? Who does that?? 100 checks a month??? really??? In the end no refund??? Scam artist at its finest........... I only wanted to find a friend back in December, and now in Februaery I notice that they are still charging me a $19.95 fee? They are idiots, and I recommend that you tell everyone that you know about this companys shady tactics. How is it that they are not under investigation??? If you rob someone on the street you will most likely go to jail..........
