Intelius ripped me off.
I paid ONCE for ONE people search, and ending up getting charged EVERY MONTH for many months. It wasn't until yesterday that I discovered this fraud. I am very angry and if there is a class action lawsuit in play, I will join it. This company must be stopped. I then Googled Intelius, and found that they have taken a dizzying amount of money from a great deal of people, all of whom are likely going to swarm like bees on them. I hope Intelius goes down in flames and is buried right next to InfoSpace. At the very least, the founders should be jailed.
Intelius - I won!!!
Today I checked my bank account and found my money had been returned to my account by Intelius. I didn't have to wait that long....I contacted my state Attorney General, the Washington State Attorney General, BBB, my bank and they wrote to them, called them and ultimately my money was returned, all I had asked from them was a one-time people search and suddenly I became a paid subscriber. I suggest strongly anytime one of these scam factories starts taking your money you immediately contact your state AG and the state they originate in - this will assist in helping others, possibly get their business to straight up or closed down. You can also contact your bank and talk about online fraud.

Intelius: wrong price, unfound list, still chgd
7/29/08: Wanted to look up an "anonymous" number that called 3x at my work phone. Intelius said it would be $4.95, then their email said it would be $9.95. When I called, the person said I had "pushed a button" to indicate further service, but they would cancel the extra charge. Their next email advised the number could not be located and I would not be charged. A check of my charge account next day showed $9.95 charged. I filed a complaint, but only got another email requesting I call them. I have not gotten this credit back yet (1 week).
News story proves Intelius is a scam
For all of those employers and consumers that felt Intelius was a scam, it runs out you were right. The details of their fraud has been broken publically at: http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/05/29/naveen-jains-intelius-prepares-to-go-public-how-much-of-their-revenue-is-a-scam/ This was all one big scam aimed at maximizing revenues in order to go IPO--another big consumer rip-off by crooks that are expert in manipulating the system. The management gets to take the money and run and consumers and shareholders would be left holding the bag. Any consumer uisng this site needs to beware.
