PrivateEye.com - People Search — A $45.90 lesson
I did a criminal check on someone I was going to hire. www.privateeye.com promises a lot, takes your money and gives you nothing. They show marvelous samples of the info you are going to receive. When the requested info comes up, there are "no details". I was charged $45.90 for "no records found" even though he man I was searching is on probabation and admitted it. He even gave me his probation number. He has been at his same address for 7 years so he shouldn't have been hard to find. No records found in this marvelous database of this "private eye company?" There is a small print disclaimer which states that any info is chargeable info, which means that if you put in the name of John Smith and they find a John Smith, they have earned your money. Writing to complain only got me "you should have read the small print". In my opinion, this is a very fraudulent company. Also, immediately after going on their site I received lots of porn email which is "mandatory" in order to get these "detailed records". What a bunch of slimeballs. Wach out folks. I walked right into that one then found http://consumer-guide.to/People.Searches/. A $45.90 lesson.
