I did a background check with Intelius and they gave me a subscription for $19.95/mo for identity protection! A service I never asked for, never authorized!!!

THEY ARE STEALING from consumers! Then they make you wait 20 minutes on hold so they hope you hang up! I am disgusted! I am calling the better biz bureau!

How can someone charge you for a service never purchased/authorized, etc... Please beware of these scams and the only reason i chose them was because they were the first to come up under search engines.

I hope they get what is coming to them.

Monetary Loss: $20.

Same thing happened to me. I bought a one time phone look up for $4.99, then was charged an additional $19.95 for a subscription that I never asked for.

When I called them I got an Indian on the phone who said "So you already have it now, what do you want me to do?" Um... *** the charge!!!! He said it would take 3 days to come back to my account.

We'll see? Also I'm pretty sure that the reverse # look up was fake info.

Just paid $69 for a background report. Report not provided.

Called them, they said the payment did not go through and I have to do it again.

I refused, the Indian told me it was "strange" that I had given them all of my personal information and credit card number, but I didn't believe them that my card was never charged. A SCAM for sure.

I had nO contact with this company for past 2 years.

On july 26th the sent email inviting me to 'test' their service for 25 Cents for a search.

I took a moment to examine my 'list of past purchases' to find i was charged $19.95 a week BEFORE the '25cent' offer!!

Outrageous!!!

Was shown as 'Subscription' .. i NEVER ever agreed or even knew about any such 'subscription' ...

This company is a big SCAM please be aware I looked up a number for .95. They carged me 19.95 for a subscription to some identy thief BS.

I am so tired of these *** holes offering services for one price then charging me for other bs i never asked for. I hope the BBB has there *** for this.

enrolled for .95 for two number look up. Only gave one number.

Charged $5.95, $19.95, $22.95. Spoke to person in India who has a smart mouth and told me I did searches in the early a.m. Do not have computer at home.

"Wilfred" said they have the proof that I am wrong. CROOKS

Talk about scam! Signed up because I'm adopted and thought I could locate my biological family.

Didn't get anything, but I sure was taken for a ride. They took $162.76 from my account. In one month with zero in return.

I'm waiting to see if they'll give back my money, if not....attorney sounds good, going to news media, television not a bad idea.....I want my money!!! :(

I Did a people search for 95 cents and they charged me $19.95. Luckily I caught it right away.

Called and complained and threatened to call the BBB. They refunded my money but still might file a complaint.

Big Scam Indeed. Never use them A Rip off

Never asked for or received information and charged 19.95 after I sent a letter to remove

charges.
