Thank God I DID check here first. Because, I read these reviews with complaints about such awful experience at public-records-nationwide.com, Gov.Resources.com, and recordsarea.com. (I think they're all one in the same, and probably have dozens more fake-named site-trap-names.) Then I went back to the page that told me it found the name I was looking for and put in "Youguys Areripoffs" and I got a response that they found him! My old friend Youguys! I can't wait to talk to him again, and his brother, Allscammers Arerippoffs.
If people are born and raised without any scruples or sense of responsibility, they will always find someone to steal from. If they're willing to do it, there will always be victims for them to practice their evil upon. The challenge is, I think, to not make it so easy for them, and try to remember that most people are good, and their businesses want to provide a legit service to other good people. It's okay that these guys aren't amoung them - we just need to hunt them down and (nicely) filter out their, uh, business model.
