After paying for their search service, you will start to see a $19.95 charge each month from pmidentity.com even though you did not sign up for this service. The majority of Intelius revenue is coming from this hidden charge. This is a known scam exposed by TechCrunch.com:

This company is owned by the billionaire, Naveen Jain, who made his money from the controversial InfoSpace.com. That story is fully covered by the Seattle Times below:

    I want to cancel my substription; But I can't because custoner service will not respond.
    That isn't good business practice. So what I am going to do is stop any payment from them . Though my Bank . So if they keep on chargeing me they will have to swollow the bill. Take Me To Court!!!
