I did one of their $1 background checks on someone. The information was not outdated by years, was lacking in all areas and was of no value to me whatsoever. I knew I was under a five-day trial period and made sure I called on the fifth day to cancel or I'd be charged $24.95 monthly, until I cancelled. Well, to make a long story short, they charged me for a 3-month bulk subscription for $$44.85! I reviewed all my records to make sure I was right--got the report on 1/1, cancelled on 1/6--"within 5 days" just like their Terms of Agreement... Read more

I had the same experience as the others. I didn't know I was enrolled, got charged for four months, with fee increasing from $1, to $29.95, and then, in third month (probably because I didn't notice the charge on the statement), the charge jumped to $44.95 a month. I called them and asked why that happened. I was told, "That's just our policy" Very slick. Watch your statement for "Checkpeople.com" Beware! You want 80 word minimum here? I think I've said it all. I feel ripped off. that's 81, okay? Read more

I used checkpeople to do a background check. The information wasn't useful. I noticed a second charge on my account the next month. I called the company and learned about the charge. The person tried to get me to keep the second month, since the charge was processing. I refused to accept the charged, wanted a refund, and canceling the account. The first two times I mentioned refund it was mentioned that I would only get $20 back. I didn't get a valid reason for a partial refund and demanded to talk to a manager. I also acknowledged that the... Read more

Can anyone tell me how to cancel my membership? They keep taking money from my bank account. I have written to them and all they will do is give me a phone number which I call and have not been able to talk to anyone yet..The first number just makes you sit through them trying to sell you other things. The want to know you age then they tell me I have won free trips, then send me to a different number because they say the number I called is not for my area. I call the other number they give me and that number does the same thing. They ask... Read more

Took the 1.00 special trial and got absolutely nothing out of it. In fact, all I got was the information I submitted. The biggest scam on the internet. Beware of this website!!!! I immediately called to cancel and was assured that no further charges will be made to my account. We'll see about that. Judging by other reviews, they haven't been very honest about their cancellation policies. The Reps. explanation for the results I received was, something to the effect, "read the disclaimer. we don't guarantee anything". That's probably the only... Read more

preview said infor was available.so i put in my credit card info then got no information. I tried to run the phone lookup repeatedly every time I got no report so I called to cancel my subscription. I talked to a youmg girl with an accent and told her to cancel my service and do not charge my card. she was nice and apologized for this then i was put on hold. then they hung up on me after listening to crappy music for 5 min. I hope they have cancelled my service . because I will not be charged for something that does not work this site... Read more

DON'T USE THIS ONLINE SERVICE! I wanted just a quick check on a phone number that had called me at 1:00AM. The name shown was not the name given me by the caller so I did not want to pay for the info on the person listed. I agreed to the $1.00 charge. My account ended being overdrawn and I was charged $27.50 by my bank for the $29.56 charge by Check People. I have called twice to get my $29.56 refunded and cannot get my money back. I learned a big lesson on this one that really hurts since I am on Social Security and every dollar counts. Read more

I signed up for a similar scammer: checkmate.com. and almost immediately realized they were scammers because I tested with a person known to have criminal convictions. They came up with zero, so I called them and immediately cancelled, which they refused to do. The checkmate.com telephone person claimed they don't have databases for arrests or for all counties. That means they don't have the database for L.A. County or Sonoma County. Criminal convictions are public records. I had to dispute the charge with my credit card company. Three months... Read more

I signed up for the trial for ONE DOLLAR. It didn't work and kept saying 'Error processing card'. So after like five tries I was just like okay whatever. Now all of a sudden there are charges on my account for $1 as well as $29.?? that I wasn't aware of. I called and told them I was never able to use the account and told him what it said about my card and he continued to argue with me that I had an account and just forgot about it. No. I didn't. It didn't register. So instead of getting my money back I was only able to get $14 of it back.. NOT... Read more
