Australian - Records.comFraudulent

Yep, you have mentioned them before and i shall now mention them too.
They have no genological content as advertised, and they took my credit card moneys before i could find that out.
All emails went unanswered and as far as i could tell not even sent becuase they said you cannot send this email blah blah blah.
I have reported them to acma and the aust internet police and i am also disputing my credit card re same.
I will also be reporting them to all the tv stations who love this kind of thing. I want my money back and will get it no matter what it takes. These people are disgraceful.

    Kicking myself for not checking for hoax reports for this site before paying up for membership.
    Clever concept as the carrot is the free search which gives minimal bona fide details with the promise of a comprehensive report on payment. Donkeys (myself included) then take the bait only to find no access to Australian records.
    I'm sure we will find a there is loophole (isn't there always?) which allows use of the word Australian and the flag, in advertising.
    Will try to retrieve my money as have received 'faulty goods' but won't hold my breath!

    To add to my last comment good old Paypal immediately took action on my behalf and Click Bank refunded my money. I presume that the site has been flagged as a fraud.

    Couldn't find this site before I paid so the same thing just happened to me, they still have their paypal enabled. An interesting learning experience and I did quite expect that Australian People Records would be a fake, but it was worth a try. Have asked for a Paypal refund. By the way, an interesting thing happened when I pressed the my account tab, not only my searches came up, but every search by anyone in the last week seemed to be listed - 2nd time I tried it had disappeared.

    It surprises me that so many Australian's would actually fall for this type of scam. I'm sorry, but with the constant media attention with respect to "Australia, s Strict Privacy Laws", why would any of you just assume that you could pay money to a website and get instant access to your own, or some other persons confidential history??? Stupidity warrants your loss of money...sorry, but true!!!

    Damn, I pride myself in not being taken by online shysters, but slipped up here.. New rule.. ALWAYS do a google search on "(product name) problems" before you trade online.
    www.australian-people-records.com - useless fake and crooked.
    I tried to pay with PayPal and couldn't, and did not understand why that would be and gave them my credit card details, so another rule.. only use PayPal.

    Got me too... Except I ended up with a membership to My Heritage... Not what I wanted at all.
    At least they have a phone number. Seeking refund both from My Heritage and also will be contacting Credit card company.
    Was trying to find out about a friend who died. The privacy laws in Australia stink! We should be allowed access to this information.
