Researchanyone.com / Site is deceptive, will not honor guarantee

United States Review updated:

ResearchAnyone.com
www.researchanyone.com

Researchanyone.com claims that with the lifetime membership that you purchase, you will be entitled to "unlimited background checks", they offer a "guarantee", but when you actually pay for their services, (they only accept paypal) they give you is a username and a password to their site that links you to other sites (all of the ones i tried were paid sites!)

Well, unlike their site insinuates, all they do is give you a list of resources that link you to other sites - every time i tried to conduct the background check i needed - i was linked to another site where i was required to sign up for their services too, for more money to get the information i was looking for.

I tried several times to conduct a background check, and every link sent me to another paid site - asking for more money, their "lifetime membership does not cover the actual background check as it implies, it only gives you links to other sites!

If you actually pay to use their site, you have clearly been looking at all of the other sites that cost money for investigative resources, you already have the resources they are linking you to!! Most of the links i was directed to were to intelius - a paid site that charges $50.00+ for 1 background check...

After paying for researchanyone.com i immediately contacted them to request a refund, which was absolutely denied.

They mention some sort of guarantee, but clearly have not intention of honoring it.

They only accept paypal, and after filing a chargeback with paypal immediately after realizing i made a mistake in trusting this company, which was literally within minutes of purchasing this worthless lifetime membership -

Both the company and paypal refused a refund...

This was paypal's response to the misleading site:

As stated in our user

Agreement, the claims process only applies to the shipment of goods. It does not apply to complaints about the attributes or quality of goods received. Therefore, we are unable to reverse this transaction or issue a refund.

Researchanyone.com does not accept any other form of payment that i could find, so you have absolutely no protection - for your purchase. They have this figured out that once they have you baited in, because they only accept paypal, they will never have to refund your money under any circumstances.

Researchanyone.com does not provide a telephone number, or address to resolve any customer service issues.

Researchanyone.com hides their url under a blind domain name company so that they cannot be contacted.

Researchanyone.com is a misleading site, that has zero customer service, and all they care about is getting your money.

I wish this information was made public before i invested in this worthless company.

Buyer beware!

CIS is similar. They are a rip-off! You can find more info on people by taking your time and research the web. It is a shame that these companies are allowed to continue in this fashion.

This guy says that ResearchAnyone.com offers no customer service, yet he states he wrote to them and they responded. Not all of the resources in the members area cost more as he implies. Also, he forgot to mention, as clearly stated on the "WHY US" page, there are fee based resources that are optional to use, you don't have to. There are plenty of free resources if you take time to look. As anyone knows, Paypal is a major credit card processor and has over 100 MILLION members worldwide and accepts all forms of payment and checks. You don't even have to be a member of Paypal to order from ResearchAnyone.com. Buyer also failed to mention he used the service and then tried to return something in which he already used and is a digital product, which we all know can't be returned, also failed to mention he only paid $19.95 for a lifetime membership.
ResearchAnyone.com is less than half the cost of all the other similar sites, and you do get unlimted self serve background checks by using the resources in their members area.

Clearly, what is stated above is nothing more than slanderous.

I think that this company is a total ripoff. Shame on PayPal for not standing behind there customers and cancell the invoices. These are the types of companies that make the internet have such a bad name and make people like us, back away from doing business with such.

Very, Very Dissatisfied, and please no one else make the same mistake.

I wish I had read all this before I paid for this site - (within an hour ago). I used to have Net Detective and although that's not the greatest, it's 150 percent better than this one -

I also wish that I would have read all this before I paid for this site. It only took me about 10 minutes to realize that they were only sending me to other links that cost more money.!! Do not waste your time or money with ResearchAnyone.com.

I disagree with these postings. I signed up with this site and found a lot of info about my former roomate that i never knew existed.

Yes, there were some resources in the members area that cost more money to use. But it did say this on their site and it is the same with GovRecords, NetDetective, PeopleSearch, etc. At least ResearchAnyone was cheap!

I was able to verfiy his social, pull a credit report, and background info with his criminal records from their members area for free. Perhaps you guys didn't take time to look. There are many pages of resources in their members section. It took me some time to navigate but eventually i found it was WELL WORTH IT! A lot better than those other JUNK sites...
