[Resolved] / fraud/identity theft

1 Saint Cloud, FL, United States Review updated:

I paid $22.95 for a background check for my husband which provided me with no information. After I paid them there were 3 fraudulent charges made to my card. I cancelled my card with my bank and when I spoke to a representative at Intelius she was very rude and hung up on me. A few minutes later my phone rang and I recognized the voice as being the customer service rep. I dealt with and she told me "You better watch your back b**** because I know where you live"Don't ever use this unreputable co.!

    On the 13th of April I went to Intelius to help me find relatives and was charged $49.99 twice. I did not order that amount even once. I wrote to you stating my complaint and was told I would have my money returned to my account in 7 days. the seven days have come and gone and I am out $100.00. I am on a fixed income and because of your inconsideration I now have checks bouncing around that I cannot pay let alone the overdraft price. If you have any compassion at all you would return my money to my account. PLEASE help me. Thank you, Penny Luccketta

    I was ripped of by Intelius too. Months ago I foolishly used this company to look up a high school friend (never did get any info on her). it cost .95 to do the look-up. Okay, fine. Now I realize I have been charged 19.95 a month for what? I have no idea. I never signed up for anything. Lying cheats!!! Haveto get a new check card. Sad that these scam artists have control of banks. WTF?????
