[Resolved] Intelius, Inc / possible fraudulent charges

In January 2007, I ordered a background check on myself and my credit card was charged $117.45. Two days ago, I received TWO emails from Intelius that my "recent" background check report was available for viewing for 30 days. I went into Intelius and looked at my account, and it showed one report in 2007, and my credit card information for a card that was closed in September 2008. I contacted Intelius and "Stephan" did not know why I was sent the email (yeah right) and I have no recent charges to my account. I have filed a "phishing" complaint with the Attorney General and Better Business Bureau, as well as contacting the credit card (closed in September 2008) company about my concern for unauthorized charges. I would steer away from these people. This type of "phishing" should be prosecuted. I believe they were trying to get updated credit card information and/or zapping me for another $117.45 charge.

    Intelius does not Phish for any information. They purchase their information from public record sources and sell exactly what they purchase.
