    I put in someone I knew to see if the information was true and it wasn’t. This person has a record and is in jail right now for the 3rd time and it says no criminal history. Plus it does not give any career information. I would not find this useful for my company to use.

    About all it does FREE is check name, age and close family – with spelling errors. Does not provided address, phone # etc etc. Zabasearch provides more with no subscription and is considerably faster. Free service – NOT! Have no desire to provide information on myself.

    Huge scam! I wanted to look up one person on May 13th and today I looked in my Paypal account and they’ve been charging me 22$ a month! I called and told them I would NEVER have said yes if asked for more than one month of service. She says they don’t ask and it is automatically renewed monthly unless you notify them!! Total SCAM!!! I politely asked for my 2 months to be refunded and they said they couldn’t do that! BS! Poor business decision to scam customers.
    I will make sure and use all of my social networks to let ppl know about this rip off!!!

    I went in and looked at one person I was trying to find info on. I paid what I thought was a one time fee and was surprised when they slammed my credit card for a number of months before I caught it. I had to get my credit card company involved in getting them to return money. They gave me back two months of their billing and canceled what they said was my subscription with them. They need to change how they do business an make it easy to understand how they charge, currently its a quagmire of legal speak,that only a lawyer would understand.

    There was no info on the person whose background I was checking. No profession, no business ownership, no real estate holdings, no marital or divorce status, no arrest records. Just residences and phone #s. I then checked on my personal information and found erroneous education and professional citations, none of which were mine. I contacted the support staff and was told that because they got the info from other sources they could not correct the info they had gotten on me. Totally worthless and potentially harmful service, which I promptly cancelled. Should have known it would not be worth the money I spent but was curious.

    I signed up for a one month subscription to search my parents who I hadn’t seen since I was in my teens. The report on my mother came back showing that she had died three years ago. I was stricken! I went online to double check the Social Security death index and there was no record to validate that finding. Now I don’t know what to think!

    I also searched my father. In both searches BeenVerified did not show me, my three siblings, or anyone else in my family for that matter, as first, or even second degree relatives. Findings were blank in most of the other categories too.

    This company is a scam, and now I’m left wondering what happened to my parents, leaving me with a greater sense of loss than I was living with already.

    I signed up for a one month subscription at a cost of $22.86. I used the service one time. I did not intend to use it again; however, I was automatically billed two more times before I caught what I thought was an error. When I called to cancel, I was told though I signed up for a one month subscription, the fine print indicated my subscription would continue until cancelled. Very misleading. Why have options for a one month, three month, etc subscription if they all along intended to bill every month until cancelled.

    This company is a joke at best. I ran a report on myself. And theres maybe a couple things correct or even close to current in their report, They did spell my name correct, they got my address correct, and then after that nada. They didn’t list any of my social media which is a lot, nor did they list any of my court documents which is a lot. They didn’t list my company ive had in business now for 2 years. simply put this company sucks do not use thwem because any info you get will be wrong, missing or out of date..

    Hi Patrick,

    I’m sorry to hear you feel this way. I believe I located your account. Your account was canceled as you requested on 1/26/16. You had already been billed for your subscription renewal that same day, before you cancelled, and it does not show that you requested a refund. I see that you sent us an email recently, and we refunded the renewal charge as you requested. You should have received an email confirmation of our refund.

    If there is anything else we can do to make things right, please don’t hesitate to contact BeenVerified Customer Care at 888-579-5910 or support@beenverified.com.

    Huge scam! I needed a background check for a college internship and thought I was paying a one-time payment. Fast forward several months later and I’ve invested almost $200 in a background check I never used. This company is betting that most people won’t realize they’re being charged every month.

    Aside from the ridiculous business practices, the background checks are completely worthless! Very limited information available! I would never recommend this website to anyone!

    I’m sorry to hear you had any trouble with your account. I would need more information to locate your account and ensure it is canceled and that you will not be billed again. If you haven’t already, please contact Customer Care at 888-579-5910 or at support@beenverified.com so we can confirm that your account is canceled.

    It would be helpful to know, what particular information were you looking for that you felt was not included in the report you viewed?

    When a free offer comes with strings attached, it is not free. Thus, this site uses misleading advertising, as do a host of second rate businesses throughout the U.S.A. We have gotten used to being misled, and standards today now allow shipping of undesired products billed to a credit card that is furnished only for the purpose of ‘identification’. This site wastes a person’s time claiming to offer something for free, when in fact this is a paid service. It is also incomplete, and inaccurate.

    You can run various searches on BeenVerified to obtain basic, introductory information, for free.

    Hi there,

    I’m sorry to hear you ran into any inaccurate information in your reports.

    BeenVerified is an easy-to-access collection of public record information. Public records are collected through official government records such as mortgage deeds and court records, and through sources such as magazine subscriptions, warranty cards and utility bills.

    As you just experienced, sometimes the information they collect is not always 100% correct, or may not have caught up with your current information just yet. However, we can only work with the information provided to us within public data. We continuously strive to update and expand our databases in order to provide you with the most current and accurate information we possibly can.

    If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out the AlertMe feature, which you can activate on up to ten reports you have run. Once AlertMe is activated, you will be notified as soon as we receive any new information in that report, such as a new phone number, address or even court record.

    If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.

    Saw the scam article these guys post on the internet. They imply that other services charge you for misinformation. Then they invite you to try to find an old friend, check out someone you met on the internet, or see what information they can find about you. I thought I’d test them by searching myself. After jumping through a few hoops I came to a page that had a list of twenty or more names on it. Many were nothing like my name, some had the same initials, and a few had my name (first name or just initial, middle name or middle initial, or no reference to middle name). They had age, cities where you supposedly lived, and “possible relatives” all in boxes that you can choose from to narrow the search. Three boxes had some version of my name and all three contained some bogus information. Relatives who had my first name for their last name, my brothers name and some sketchy info about him listed as an alias that I used, wrong age, wrong city. So I chose the box that was closest to accurate, even though it wasn’t completely accurate. This starts a little show that’s supposed to make you think they’re searching files and records. They then say they have a package of information and offer to sell it to you. Since the info I saw about myself so far had been wrong I wasn’t foolish enough to give them payment information. Instead I called them to say I wanted the misinformation about me removed from their service. They told me “We don’t compile the info we just search public records. If those records are wrong that’s not our fault”. Translated that means “We don’t care about accuracy. We search records. We find records (regardless whose records they are) and we put together a package. If you’re dumb enough to buy a pkg of bogus information don’t blame us. You shouldn’t have trusted us in the first place”.

    DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THESE GOOFS. They’re in the business of exchanging your credit card info for a bag of crap.

    I’m surprised at all of the negative ratings. Compared to the highly advertised Check Mate website this is far superior. Very fast with people finder. Old friends, distant family members, ex-spouses were found in seconds. Several reviews complained about the lack of arrest records. Hello?? Police Departments are not obligated to share this with the general public. It’s confidential and they can be sued. I cancelled my membership because of the $22.95 monthly rate. It’s simply not worth it to me for an occasional look up. Definitely take advantage of the free trial offer.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the feedback! I’m happy to hear BeenVerified was helpful for you.

    You’re absolutely correct that we are dependent on the criminal data that police departments, county courts and other state agencies choose to make digitally available to us. There are some counties that make a great deal of data available, including arrests, while other counties only share conviction data. There are some counties that do not yet make any of their criminal data digitally available for integration into services such as BeenVerified.

    If you are ever interested in returning to the service, please don’t hesitate to call Customer Care at 888-579-5910 – we’re happy to see if there is a more affordable subscription option that might meet your needs.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Brian,

    I’m not familiar with any $22.99 pricing from BeenVerified. Currenty, one of our popular subscription plans is a $22.86 monthly subscription, but this gives you access to run unlimited reports. Reports include relatives and associates, however we do not provide marriage or divorce records.

    Pricing does not vary depending on your location. In addition to the Criminal/Traffic section of the report, which will pull in aggregated criminal data, we also offer the Court Runner feature. This premium service allows you to purchase a request to a specific county court, and a runner will go directly to that court and pull any conviction records for the requested individual, dated within the past seven years. There are some county courts that have additional court fees, I’m not sure if perhaps this was part of what customer service spoke to you regarding.

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact BeenVerified Customer Care at 888-579-5910 or at support@beenverified.com.

    Data is outdated, inaccurate and/or not provided. I checked another person’s record at their request while they were present to check for accuracy. Personally, I wouldn’t have use their site.

    They charge your credit card without your permission. A 1 MONTH Membership should be a one-time, 1 month membership. They take it upon themselves to charge you the $22.86 per month!! If someone wants to use their services for more than 1 month, they’d choose the cheaper 3 or 6 month membership version. You know it’s a SCAM because they deduct the money from your account as if you’re stupid enough to pay $22.86 per month for their outdated material!

    I was on hold for 30 + minutes (instead of their 25 seconds they claim is their typical), which is another red flag.

    On a positive note, I finally spoke to “Kathy” (30 minutes later) and she immediately emailed me with confirmation that they’ll refund my money within 3-5 business days which they shouldn’t have charged my account in the first place.

    To cancel online is very difficult to do. You have to send them an online message and type wording that you want to cancel, etc. then a blue button pops up asking you do you want to cancel! Good luck!

    Correction (above review is for BackgroundAlert.com)

    I spoke to Adam at BeenVerified.com. They answered the telephone within 1 minute or less to cancel. He cancelled online the 1 MONTH membership. I received the email quickly. I demanded a refund since I didn’t authorize the deduction from my account! 1 month membership should mean exactly that, ONE MONTH!!! He said he’d process but I never received an email confirmation for the refund.

    The 1st two paragraphs are the same.

    A complete scam. I signed up for the cheapest available amount so that I could have a one-time report sent. It is listed as a “One-Month” choice. Buried in the fine print is that they will deduct the same amount every month. Thankfully I noticed it after only one additional month and was able to cancel it. The report itself is also a joke, I am not sure why any reputable institution would attach any value to it.

    Signed up for an account and decided to cancel within my free trial period….They claim that my email isn’t associated with any account! Interesting since they charged my credit card. I’ll be disputing any charges they attempt to bill me….$20 per chargeback gets expensive!

    I tried this service to find friends of an old friend that had passed. I did find several people many others the information was not correct. They are a pay ahead service, and each month they have charged my card on the 30th of the month,
    I called asking for a credit and cancel my account on October 30th and was charged again in my November statement. My first attempt for resolution from m credit card company got the November statement reversed, but said I had no recourse for the previous month. I then called the credit card company talked to another representative who gave me a second credit. But stay away from this company!

    Hi Tim,

    I’m sorry to hear you feel this way. I see that your account was canceled on 10/30, but we don’t show a record of you requesting a refund. I see that you spoke with customer service again in November, they did refund your most recent renewal charge, as you requested. I went ahead and refunded your September renewal charge as well. You should see this reflected on your statement within a few business days.

    Please be assured your account is canceled and you will not be billed again.

    If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Customer Care at 888-579-5910 or at support@beenverified.com.

    Kind regards,

    To anyone reading this who was scammed by these sleazebags at
    “Been Verified”….they are a complete scam…..Luckily, I’ve never used them or any site like them….I’m posting this to hopefully maybe help some people…..Anyone who lost money to them…..Call them back (I know its difficult to get them to answer) but if you get someone on the phone, be nice, get the person’s FULL name 1st & Last, AND their extension number and/or direct callback number(in case you get dis-connected)….THEN, demand your money back, a full refund and if they refuse, tell them you will be filing an investigation complaint against them with the Better Business Bureau AND your STATE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE!!!!! This should motivate then to refund you (since they know they are illegally charging people’s cards)….if it doesn’t persuade them, then definitely report them for investigation with your State Attorney Generals OFFICE!!!! They can assist you with this type of matter! I hope this helps some people…..ALSO, contact your credit card company, report “BEEN VERIFIED” as FRAUDULENTLY charging your card, dispute the charge(s), put a freeze on that card account so you can’t be charged anymore…your card companies fraud unit should be able to help you…..I hope this helps some people…..Be aware that the type of information you are seeking through these types of sites, if totally free and easily available through google searching, or knowing the correct places to search for what you are looking for! NEVER PAY for an online service provider like this….they are all scams!!!! IF looking to see about people arrested/convicted of sexual crimes, there are several sites you can use….your state and/or counties DEPT OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE SERVICES….Also, google your town, county, or States sexual predator records and you will find a link to those sites that will give you this info…they are run by the state and/or counties where the sex offenders live…..depending on the site you use, you can find out what the person was convicted of, what level offender they are (1, 2 or 3rd)…..where they live and work, as well as what they did (such as being convicted of 1st degree sodomy, sexual intercourse with a minor under 14 yrs old), etc…..Hope this helps people…..

    Well, I may have made the biggest blunder in my life b/c I signed up for this company’s services. I received some information on my first search & now they are requiring an address & e-mail address on the second person that I am trying to do a search for. Very disappointing & if they are planing to SCAM me, then I’m one step in ahead of them b/c I have read the comments from unhappy customers. I should have had enough sense to check them out before I requested their services. I hope that people are wrong in what they have said; however, there are so many dissatisfied people that I doubt if I am. I still have to get in touch of the first person-so the proof is in the pudding on that one.

    tl;dr; DON’T BUY INTO THIS SHIT!!!!

    One more scammed here. I had signed up initially with the $1.00 5 day trial offer they sent me after I was trying to track down someone online. But their automated system didn’t let me cancel during the cheap trial period and then I got billed $25.47 after I missed the mark because I was too busy to try again with a real person.

    So I figured, okay, since I paid for the rest of the month, I’ll try to look up other people I knew and it was very sketchy. Certain people that I knew existed because I grew up with them weren’t even in their system and the few that I could find records for were either empty or had bogus and/or obsolete claims that it was them.

    This site is laughably terrible. Most of the reports are empty and don’t tell you anything more that a thorough FREE online search around the Internet could tell you about the person(s) you’re looking for.

    I’m not going to complain that I want my money back because I honestly did figure out a couple of little things about the people I know that I couldn’t previously locate online. But for everyone else, just ask around in real life about your person if you really want to know about them. It’s more fun and probably more cost effective than this crap, lol.

    One more scammed. I thought I was signing up for a one month membership for $22.86 vs. the 3 month membership of $14.86 or 6 months at $9.83 per month. These options were in large print and I was a dumb dumb and didn’t read the fine print because it was such fine print that me, being 53, couldn’t read it! I’m now being billed $22.86 per month for researching ONE record that probably wasn’t reliable in the first place! When I try to cancel, I don’t have my registration number (because I was only researching one name in the first place!) and I’ve been on hold for the past 30 minutes, and having been scammed like this before, I know I’ll be on hold for the next day or so and no one will ever respond to me!)

    I know the feeling. The 1 MONTH Membership where you pay a premium amount of $22.86 versus a 3 month or 6 month amount at a much lower amount is a RIPOFF. They continue to try to bill you for the $22.86 per month. What’s the point of a 1 month membership? It’s a scam.

    I just saw them try to charge my account again! I was on hold for over 30 minutes even though they claim most calls are responded to in “25 seconds.”

    I finally spoke to “Kathy” today and she sent me an email confirmation for the refund. I cancelled online through a posting that somehow popped up when I was sending a message. Otherwise, the online cancellation is nowhere to be found. Maybe it was my wording in my message because I tried to get back to it and it didn’t pop up again.

I, too, was signed up for a one month deal, and when I tried to search for ONE more person, they wanted to be charged again. What a scam. I am being charged every month and didn’t ever get to get online and cancel because this or that was not correct or valid, supposedly. Like you said, it’s funny that they could get my C card info, but I can’t get to the site to do what I want-Cancel it. Every time I would try to cancel anything, it bumps me off. I am contacting the authorities, if I don’t get an answer and refund next time I try to call them. The BBB has nothing on their site, pros or cons, just their name is registered, so that is even suspicious.

The date of purchase was the same day that I checked into a motel while traveling in Oregon.

    I was linked to “BeenVerified.com” through what appeared to be a legitimate, professional job posting on Craigslist. I am SO broke, but I went ahead and paid the $23 for a background check on myself, because I was afraid that if I didn’t, I would not have a chance to be interviewed for the job, which I found out was a SCAM.
    BeenVerified is a JOKE. Totally old and inaccurate information for background checks. I was duped into purchasing “BeenVerfied.com” and I believe that the job posting was created by them to get you to use their service, which is not a service at all because you can get any of that information just by googling someone’s name for free.

    https://www.beenverified.com/lp/116f02/2/js/flow.js – here is all the proof you need to show you that this is just crap.

    First off: If you write software that has certain steps to follow, you’d show your steps and explain what you are doing. This is what the progress bars should be used for.

    Accessing public records will take a different amount of time every time, because different subjects will result in different amounts of data:

    The above just proves that this is all stupid javascript filling up bars for no reason. One might argue that this could be just a fancy distraction while they are ACTUALLY looking up information, but speaking from experience: The actual information you are looking for will not take minutes to gather but just a few seconds. This whole project is just a stupid bootstrap-based aggregate information service that tries to sell itself as a new kind of white pages, stalking service included.

    Looking at the code alone, they could have at least made it a bit harder for me to figure out wether they are just full of crap or actually doing something useful.

    Useless. And inappropriate, if it were actually for real.

    When a site, such as yours, does not list complete basic information, then I have to conclude it is difficult to trust any other information on the site.
    Specifically, One of my sons, does not appear on my information. His name is not Kreitzer. But he is my son from my first marriage, and his father passed away. How come you don’t have that information?

    As a professional, and someone who has worked with the former Governor, Robert Ehrlich, both on his Transition team and the Maryland Nursing commission task force, I am uneasy about your website (BeenVerified). If you are going to have such a website, it must have accurate information. Somewhere down the road, someone could take you to court for inaccurate information. Don’t let this happen. You could have a very valuable site, but the information must be complete and above all, accurate.

Worst of all been “verified” didn’t even know that the subject I was looking for is deceased and has been since 1985. I found one conviction, I know he had more but nothing about his family, military service or death. According to been verified my subject is age 65 living in Oregon. Trust me he’s not alive so how “verified” is been verified? NOT HAPPY with the results. $10 I’ll never see again.

    Here’s the bad part. Years ago switchboard.com was the equivalent of the white pages. Now when you go to that website to search for some for as simple as aphine number and address you are re-directed to been verified or intelius or people search and never get the phone umber or address…so how are we supposed to get that for free? You can’t!

    I searched for myself and my name did not come up, they weren’t even in the state I listed. I searched for someone else but stopped when they wanted my name & email. I thought uh, huh…. that’s partly how they build their database so I got out. I figured if they couldn’t find me I wasn’t going to help them find me.

    I know a few people who use BV. I have not heard one complaint from them. We use it in a facebook group in helping people find lost loved ones or friends. It is used a lot. It does take a few minutes to pull up all the info though because its looking up info for several categories (address, people, criminal history, etc.). The info you get will be names they have used, addresses they have used as well as people that they are associated with (family, friends, associates, etc.). If they have a criminal history you’ll get that as well. The info may not be current right this minute info. For example, one lady found an aunt’s address using BV. When someone went there it was vacant. It was a rental property and the aunt had moved out a few months prior.

    I am considering signing up. From how I understand(and from others who have used it), you sign up for a 1 month, 3 mo or 6 mo service. Price depends on the # of months you want. If you do a 1 time only report, it costs around $20, so its best to just do the one month of unlimited searching.

    The info found by BV is Public Info anyways, so that’s where they get it. So, unless you go directly to the source holding the public info, then you wont find it. Most people dont know where to go to find it, so they pay for someone to find it for them. So, for example, it really dosnt matter if you ask BV to remove your criminal history, I can still go to the courts and look it up myself anyways. Your age, dob, photo, description is all there. The only difference, is BV is a one stop shop to get it all at one place. Skip tracers, searchers, Collection agencies, CI’s, law enforcement, etc. use sites such as these to find people. So I can understand why someone would not want their info to be “easily” found. Although, I do understand someone not wanting an x husband, stalker, etc having it and they should be able to have it removed w/supporting documents.

    As for that posting about the FTC. That company filed a complaint with the FTC. Simple as that. It has nothing to do w/the FTC and says nothing about FTC looking into it. Its that companies way to advertise for their service.

    Gee Tina, according to your second paragraph, you are now “considering signing up.” It is amazing that you do not have BeenVerified’s precious “service,” and yet you wrote so much about how terrific it is!

    It appears that everyone in your world uses BV. Do ya’ll have little get-togethers to tell BV anecdotes and war stories? That must be soooo fun. I’ve never met ONE person who has used it, yet you are surrounded by them.

    BTW, how would you know about a complaint a company filed with the FTC against you? Oh, sorry, against BeenVerified.

    I only wanted one report on someone I already knew and they charged me over $22 and made me sign up for monthly direct charges after luring me in by saying it was free. The report I got took over 5 minutes to assemble, full of hype and the report contained not one piece of new information, 7 pages, not one bit of information. Don’t use this service. They just haven’t programmed it right yet.

    A one time report is appx $20, but unlimited monthly is the better way to go anyways. If you dont want it past the month, then cancel it before the month is over. It does take several minutes for a report to populate, that shouldnt be an issue. Reports are going to contain public info only, so what they is what they got from other sources.

    I entered my info and charge card info for one month subscription of $22.86. When I went to view the requested report, additional subscription offers popped up but no report. I called 888-579-5910 to find out why I did not receive my report. They said the system showed I had not created an account with them as the zipcode on my card did not match.No error message had popped that my card was not accepted. I informed that that my card was a gift card and had no zip code (BIG MISTAKE!) They said we have not charged the amount on your card. However when I checked my card balance I found they had put through not once but twice the amount of one month subscription-$22.86, thus reducing the balance on my card by $45.72, that too within minutes. I told them I did not want the service and they hung up. This is fraudulent!

    Do you not have your x husbands social? It should be on your tax papers. The state employment office can tell you where he is working and the child support people should be able to do this for you. My sister in law had the same issue, but unfortunately she wasnt married to the man, so she didnt have his social. When she would find out where he worked and report it and they started drawing child support, he’d quit that job and work somewhere else.

    BV is only going to show you info that is public info. Its not going to tell you where he works (at least I have not seen employment info). It could give you addresses but there is no guarantee its a current one.

    I will tell you its a good company. We use it all the time in a facebook group where we help find lost loved ones. But in saying that, the info you are looking for you wont find here.

    Just keep tabs on his fB page, Linkedin, and anywhere else he posts to. He will slip up someday and you’ll find what you need. Just keep digging. Even my info in on the internet.

    This is a scam.
    1st. The info that it gives you on a background check is very generic and could be any where from a possibility of 10 persons or 100 persons.

    2nd. The most important, it is impossible to cancel your membership. I tried to cancel but unless you have the initial 9 digit membership number, you can’t. You can’t get a real person on the phone, just voice prompts.

    3rd. The amounts they tell you you will be charged is also incorrect. I’m being charged $19.95 from my checking acct. every month, and they are charing me $22.95 every month on my credit card. And I only signed up for a one time only verification.

    This has been going on now for over 6 months, they are making a killing off of people. It should be illegal, but you can’t get in touch with anyone. So, I reported them as Credit Card fraud to my credit card company, so I’ll see if that worked on my statement next month. But still working on getting the auto-payment stopped from my checking acct.

    THIS IS A TOTAL RIP OFF, THEY ARE GETTING ALMOST $50.00 A MONTH FROM ME AND I ONLY REQUESTED A ONE TIME BACKGROUND CHECK. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 7 MONTHS ALREADY.

    Beware! This is a total money scam!!! I signed up only for a free 7 day trial. Was not satisfied with their services as they did not find any results for what I was looking for. I then cancelled the free trial with the understanding they would charge .99 to my account. First bank statement they charged.99 and 7 days later there were two additional charges the same day…one for 19.95 and another for 19.99. I did not catch this the first statement(my fault). The second month 2 more charges appeared the same day for 19.95 and 19.99. When I called them they said I had not cancelled the order and I had not recieved a confirmation from them verifying I had. When asked about the two 19.00 fees was told one was membership an one for identity theft protection I did not sign up for. Why was I charged the .99 cancellation fee if I did not cancel and then still charged membership fees. These people are totally bogus and I hope they will be out of business very soon. maybe this will save someone else from having their bank account drained by these crooks!

    I went and did an online background search on myself with Been verified.
    The result was devastating. There was false, inaccurate information
    which showed me to be in a very unfavorable position.
    The Federal Trade Commission has placed a law on the books that there
    needs to be an opt/out of the websites search engines. However, you
    must first go online, pay a fee, and then get the opt/out.
    The question I have as do many from other customers state that their
    reputations are harmed to the point where they look unemployable.
    The opt/out process is way to late. The information about you could have been out there long before you realized it was there. How many
    people have reviewed your personal information before the OPT/OUT
    process is a nexus. Also Been Verified gave me back a refund, but
    Instantcheckmate will not. The same inaccurate, misleading info was found there as well. I OPT/OUT and wanted a refund, but they refused.
    So, I am filing a legal suit against all background search engines
    who sell personal information that is inaccurate, and harmful to a
    persons reputation. A Class Action is warranted here and the Federal
    Trade Commission needs to get tough about refunds for consumers who have been scammed.

    to late because people have already bought the info about you and the
    harm is already done. Try and get unemployment with some of the false
    inaccurate info about you. A prospective employer will not give you the
    time of day. The background search engines will not always give you
    your money back. What they sold you was unverified personal data.
    Write to the Federal Trade Commission and place your story in writing.
    If hundreds of harmed customers do this more can happen to these
    scammers.

    This site should be renamed as “Been Had” and relate to their victim customers. It had very little information and when I called I was told that the criminal or court information I wanted was not available unless I paid an additional fee. The additional fee was for someone to go to the court in question and get the information. The trouble with that is that I had to know which court might have been involved in all 50 states for that to be of any value.
    The information I was given in the report was at least 50% wrong.

    Unbelieveable – DON’T DO IT!!! Didn’t help me find the person I was looking for and then tried to charge me again for another 3 month period saying I had signed up for their membership. I have had this happen to me before where I thought I was signing up for a 3 month period only to find out the membership rolls over into another 3 months without any warning. Called to cancel and have my money returned to me and they said I had signed up for the roll-over service which I clearly did not! I was very careful NOT TO because of what has happened to me on other sites. Anyway, they state they will refund my money and that I will receive an email stating so. We’ll see because if I do not have it returned to me within two weeks they will be hearing a lot of noise from me. Waste of time!!! Rip OFF site and decietful!!! If I do not get my money back I will go to BBB and Seven on your side!! They have to stop ripping people off….it is dispicable!

    Absolutely wouldn’t use this service…PERIOD!! I ran a large number of searches over a 3 month period…most of them had inaccurate information either in terms of old address, phone numbers and associates….the biggest issue was the criminal side. I ran searches on people I knew had criminal issues….some of them serious…..and most of the people came back clean. One in particular had a couple of issues listed at beenverified but actually had 10 other arrests for DUI, assualt, battery and the like that never showed up. No problem, I found it all out myself a week later when the person went drunk & wild. I actually sent them the information and they cancelled my service immediately! DON’T deal with these guys except for very basic address info which you can find elsewhere.

    Or if you are using them also use mugshots.com or something like that!

    So I signed up for the 7 day trial. I was able to find most of the people I was looking for, but I didn’t get very much good information from it. I was interested in criminal records, just for fun really, and it only found criminal information on one person. I know some of the others had at least some minor issues recently, and the records didn’t come up.

    Overall it’s easy to use.

    I used it for about 30 minutes then cancelled. I called the 888 number, hit option 1 to cancel, then entered my 9 digit member number (which came in an e-mail when I registered). It canceled the service straight away, and an e-mail confirmation arrived about 1 minute latter.

    No harm as far as I can tell (I used an e-mail address that I don’t generally check, so if they spam me, it’s ok).

    I have been arrested 3 times in my 30 years one of those arrests were for disorderly conduct, I have no felonies on my record but spent 31 months in a state prison for my first case from 2003/2004 “Theft”. I ended up with 4 counts one of them being “prowling and loitering at night time” (because I was walking down a street after curfew) I actually never even committed a crime the first time I was arrested but I was with a friend who did and the super cops thought they would be hero’s and make us out to be the ring leaders of a string of car thefts that were taken place in this one horse town that I was unfortunately born in. They gave us 33 counts( all which were dropped because lack of proof and my charges were dropped down to only 4.

    If I had been a little older and wiser I would not have given up my rights and signed any statements against myself. Anyway It was my first offense and I was on probation for two years consecutive and the first year I violated curfew and my lawyer said that I was going to get maxed out 9 months because my judge was not a friendly judge, me being young and very stupid / scared I decided to run away. And I did, went to New Orleans and stayed until Hurricane Katrina and then moved to NYC 7 days after the storm. I was on the run a total of 4 years and seen a lot, met famous people and traveled to places I always dreamed about, I ended up turning myself in and the judge was not happy with me so he gave me the max penalty with my record, 6-12 months on each count and I had 4 of them. He ran them all consecutive with each other.

    I spent 29 months in a maximum state correctional facility and 3 months in a halfway house and 16 months on state supervised parole, and I did it with no write ups. I finished my parole in May of last year and met a wonderful girl that I am madly in love with, she knows all about my background history and I told her we should sit down and talk to her family about it, after 10 months and pre-engagement ring you would think these blue collar intelligent folks would understand this was 10 years ago when I was very much an adolescent and I served my time plus some I think to society. Well the woman I loved did not want me to do this and I did not want to disrespect her wishes and not too long ago I pissed somebody off by a video I posted http://youtu.be/e4wVG725ZXU (the bartender) and she decided to IM the mother of the woman I deeply love and tell her some nasty lies about me and also she told her to just do a background check and she will see for herself.

    Now I don’t know if that was the real cause of the background check but this bartender knows me personally because I used to work with her there and she messaged me and told me she was going to ruin my life and good luck with my future relationship, not more then a week later the mother of my darling did the background check and let me tell you something, Oh my Oh my, this website been verified made me look like Manson himself, they were not correct about a lot of stuff and added a ton of unnecessary stuff like “dismissal’s”,preliminary hearings that were just waived, guilty plea…ect ect.. they call these “OFFENSE’S” and said that I have 31 offenses. That is not the truth that is a lie and I think now that I have printed out my own copy I will take it to a lawyer and see what they say about this “slander”, “defamation of character”.

    Since the mother of the woman I adore payed the $20 to get this information my girlfriend was so embarrassed by it and her family so upset, they want nothing to do with me and they want her to have nothing to do with me, she has moved out back in with her mom and took the ring off. We still love each other madly and see each other behind her family’s back which is tearing our relationship apart. I’m moving in three day’s to another state for work where the plan was for her to follow or at least we visit back and forth, but now I’m moving alone. This website has ruined my life plans because of how horrible it made me look, I was no saint growing up but I have payed my dues and changed my ways as a man and have never had 31 criminal offenses.

    Go to your local police department and get your actual criminal background. I’ve used this site for a few months now and it’s fairly accurate in terms of finding people and their last physical addresses and list of phone numbers associated with the person. IT IS NOT AT ALL ACCURATE ON CRIMINAL BACKGROUNDS – I just did a background on someone and it showed 1 DUI…..it didn’t show the other 10 arrests for DUI and DUI related offenses that would have told me this person had a serious drinking problem….which showed up live and unfriendly a week after the report I relied on was run.

    Have your girl look at the actual report and not this one! I terminated my service.

    I always leave reviews good or bad when I find a service I am excited to use, and man was BeenVerified a disappointment. I searched my own name having had three addresses in this state, paying utilities at each and living at each for more than 5 years a piece. In addition, I have some misdemeanors on my record in two different counties in the state.

    The BeenVerified report only showed one address, no criminal charges and frankly no data whatsoever besides my last address and name. I don’t know how they are in business, they are worthless. My only hope is that future employers will use this service because it is so bad.

    Paid $20 for a background check on my horrible step father who is a pathological liar. I know that hew imprisoned in Ohio, North Carolina, and West Virginia for a fact before I even started researching on my own. After a little digging on the internet, a few phone calls/emails/faxes I had complete records of his time in these states. I decided that I would buy a background check to make my life easier and when looking at the criminal history it only returned a fraction of his time in Ohio (may I mention that North Carolina’s Department of Public Safety’s information is the first result when googling his first and last name only!)

    I just don’t see this being effective or useful in any way if you can Google a first and last name, use the “I’m feeling lucky” button and come out with more information.

    I definitely do not recommend beenverified.com to anyone!

My 7 day free trial is over 30 mins after I tried it! Their may be some spotty information their that was not exactly pulled up right away with search engine but some one that barely even tried to do this would come out with probably more! I have a criminal history and it brings back nothing!!! Kind of recent too. Wow the trial is ok but paying for the membership is out of the question!

As of today I have been charged $48.00 on 7 occasions totaling $336.00 in fraudulent charges. I have not logged in or used their service since the date I signed up and cancelled yet they continue to charge me!

    I got suckered into the 7-day trial scam. It says background checks are free for 7 days, but you have to create an alert to actually get any information which takes a minimum of a month to collect. They have my credit card number, there is no option to revoke my number. I have to call during their business hours to cancel, probably do a long satisfaction survey or put up with more sales pushes. I could not even find my therapist or my doctor by entering name, state, and city. I managed to find myself, but the only information was the fake information I have on my public Facebook page (name, siblings, dob).

    The support service is automated, press 1 + account number + # to cancel account, you will receive a confirmation email shortly, says the voice. I ran the thing, got an email asking me if I would like to have another 30 days free, but no confirmation link or anything. I ran the phone call again, and it said the same message as if it didn’t know I was already canceled. I don’t see my name at the top of page anymore. This is because I changed billing name and address to ‘void’, so it says “Welcome back Void”. I tried to enter void for the card number, but it would not accept nonvalid numbers, so I entered fake number using algorithm and changed the expiration date of my card to this month. The have no right to keep my real credit card number.

    Beenverified.com is a $96 mirror site to browse public-only Facebook profiles.

    Hi there,

    I’m the manager of BeenVerified’s customer support team. I’m very sorry to hear the service was not helpful for you.

    As the article above describes, we provide a searchable database of aggregated public records. Public records are collected through official government records such as mortgage deeds and court records, and through sources such as magazine subscriptions, warranty cards and utility bills.

    As it sounds like you experienced, sometimes the information they collect is not always 100% correct. However, we can only work with the information provided to us within public data. The amount of current and accurate information you are able to locate for an individual can depend on the amount of information collected on that individual by various government and private agencies, and the laws regarding public information in the state where the individual resides. We are constantly updating and expanding our database to provide the most current and up-to-date information we possibly can.

    If you feel like you didn’t get what you paid for, then we’d be happy to work with you to make this right. I encourage you to contact us directly at 1-888-579-5910 or at support@beenverified.com so we can provide additional assistance. We look forward to hearing from you.

    We provide a few different ways to sign up and access our service. You can sign up as a pay-as-you-go customer and just purchase one report with no commitment, or sign up for a subscription. We also offer different kinds of reports, depending on what you need.

    Our 7-day trial and paid subscriptions give you access to run unlimited background reports. These include personal and contact information, property reports, email searches, relatives and associates, as well as criminal records, bankruptcies, judgments and liens, and more. We also offer an option to upgrade your report to search additional databases to return information in other categories such as: watercraft ownership, gaming licenses, UCC filings and more. As you can imagine, there are many individuals for whom there would be no results in these categories. It costs us to provide this service, so at this time we offer these at an additional purchase. We are always expanding and updating our service based on the feedback from our customers, so perhaps we will provide different ways to access and pay for this information in the future.

    It would be helpful for us to know exactly what information you felt was not included in your report and required an additional purchase. I encourage you to contact us directly at 1-888-579-5910 or at support@beenverified.com so we may provide additional assistance. If you found something unclear when signing up – then that is important feedback for us to hear as we continue to improve our services.

It showed that I had 24 searches left (out of 25) and I was never given the chance to put in a birthdate. The one person it found was not even close. I tried to get my money back and custumer service said it would be taken care of. No money has been returned to my account almost a week later. Total SCAM from my experience.

    As a retired federal agent who occasionally conducts contract security inquiries, I have been pleased with the results of Been Verified.

    Remember, it will only tell you information that is of public record. It appears they have access to certain credit reporting information. Not all arrests are recorded because many times the arrested party never gets to the conviction stage. Therefore there will be no public record of a court conviction.

    There will always be people with identical names and sometimes with the same birth date. Therefore, you must be aware of duplicate hits. Use your best judgment.

    It does not have access to social security information – even federal investigators have a hard time getting this data from the Social Security Administration without a subpoena.

    Overall, I have had good success with Been Verified.

    I tried it to find info on a potential renter, and decided to try the free trial. First, you can do searches on social security info, which would be more accurate. Second, I ran numerous searches on family and friends to try it out and test the accuracy.

    The inaccurate amount of info is awful. Strange alias names, strange family members or associates, i tried to do a search on a social site that someone belongs to, by email, and it didn’t bring up any info that it should have. I couldn’t even change that email to a different one to check the other emails.

    The service is horrible. I complained 2 days ago, still no response. Save your money. I’ve done a lot of these searches online and i do a better job!

    Of course it’s a scam people. Holly hell. How can a company run a background check on anyone without a social security number? its impossible…not to mention that this information they claim to offer is supposed to be handy by mobile phone apps. You have got to be kidding. If you fell for this, you obviously were not thinking it through fully. At least mylife.com seemed a little believable.

    PS mylife.com is a scam as well.

    I’m sorry but all of you people who say it’s great are blind. They give FALSE INFORMATION. I searched myself, and it said I was a 56 year old man with several DUI’s and that I was a child molester.. I don’t know about you, but I’m ayoung christian man who’s never touched alcohol. And having such intimate acts with an adolescent is just sick and wrong in my opinion. Then I called to cancel and they said to check their site. One of their policies state that you can’t get a refund if you used the product during the free trial period. Now if you ask anyone in the world, they’ll all say the same thing. That policy right there clearly shows it’s a scam. Do not sign up with beenverified. They are an EVIL corporation just out there to get your money. They are still billing me to this day, and I started the free trial a year ago. Thank you for taking your time to read this.

    Folks, any site like this can be useful, if you are only using it as a starting point. It is up to everyone that uses these types of services to do a little fact checking. If I am writing a book report and using a known information website, I will verify the information with that of other resources to find out the accuracy of the information. One should never use the information given as a final statement of fact. As one user said, these are data dump sites. That is not necessarily a bad thing. It is very easy to pay a couple of bucks and find out some information and then go from there.

    Some reviewers want you to hire a private investigator. That is all well and good (I am a private investigator) if you have the money to spend and the time on your side that it takes to gather all this info, but don’t think for a moment that your investigator wont use the exact same site for some quick information. I have spoken with people that have hired other investigators and the client raves about how quickly they received information from their PI, usually within an hour of hire. How did the PI do that? With many people living in an average of 2 to 3 counties in their life times, how did the PI take payment and drive to the courthouses of two or three different counties, look up the information, review and analyze it, drive back to the office, type up the report and contact the client in under an hour? I will tell you, he didn’t. He used an data site like this. I have done it myself. However, I also verify the information with a trip to the courthouse to find out all the details of a case. My background checks may take a week or more because I am making phone calls, faxing releases, travelling to the courthouse, interviewing neighbors and friends, etc.

    So, before putting down these sites and calling them scams, understand what they are and how their usefulness fits into what you want to achieve and how much time and money you want to spend.

    I signed my company up for the free 1-week trial. We wanted to check it out for future employees, new customers, etc.

    I put in the name of someone I know who has 1) criminal, 2) bankruptcies (2 of them!) and 3) liens against him. I was thrilled that all the ones I knew about came up.

    We’ve checked out quite a few people we know and it seems pretty good overall. We’re keeping the service for 12 months because we think it will be helpful.

    I signed up for the “FREE TRAIL” (ya OK) BEFORE THREE DAYS before my trial was going to end, I called to cancel, the number they had on the website went to an answering machine,( I called at 2pm on a Tuesday) I left my information it said it would get back to me the next day, nope waited another day then called back at 11am same thing, I called later that day got someone on the phone, they told me I had to wait for the last day of the trial, I told them NO I want to cancel anytime, I told them it said call anytime to cancel as I was LOOKING AT IT ON THE SITE WHILE I WAS TALKING, “Greg” told me NO it doesn’t I stated I was looking at it, he HUNG UP ON ME. I called back talked to “Samantha” she told me the same thing I has to wait until tomorrow, I asked to speak with a Boss, she told me NONE were their, not busy, but not in the BUILDING…I told her I did not beleive it and she said ” guess you cannot prove it, now can you” I wanted to jump through the phone! Then she hung up on me also ( I was not rude at all, how I managed to be is beyond me) so I decided to call the nest day, so I did and guess what, It was to late because they BILL ON THE 7th day, I told them NO, it does not state that in TOS (terms of service) and she (I think I spoke to a Carmen) told me “Sir, I doubt you read the entire Terms, no one does” I told her I wanted the charges reversed, she said it was impossible. I told her Fine I will call and dispute it from Credit Card Company. Sh e Giggled and said Sir, You called yesterday and signed up for the 3 Hundred some odd Dollars for like three years. Long Sorry short, believe me it was short the story I told you, MY CC company got my money back, Been verified then sent me three bills before I ended up called the BBB and took the advice I was given, the billed stopped, but its still on my credit report. DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THIS COMPANY, IF YOU WANT TO WASTE YOU MONEY THEN I HAVE A FEW THINGS I WOULD LIKE AND YOU CAN SPEND IT ON ME, OR JUST TOSS IT OUT YOUR WINDOW!!!

    aaron r,
    I don’t work for beenverified. I tried their service in 2010 and cancelled in four days with no problems.
    On Sunday, March 31 2012, I agreed to try the 7 day free trial again. With a different credit card and I used a fake name on their enrollment website. I was ready again. Their site does not ask for your real name on your card. They do not ask for your social security. Their system is primarily focused on your card number not your real name. This is the loop hole in your favor should you ever want to dispute with the three (3) major credit bureaus.
    On April 4, 2012, I cancelled with Gladis at BeenVerified at 9:07AM. The procedure is simple. Call their 800 number. Have your ID number ready and type it in when asked. They will forward you to a live operator. Tell him/her you want to cancel. The person will cancel. Simple. You will get a email to your email address that you have on file with BeenVerified that your account was cancelled. That is your proof. Now if you used your real name or not it does not matter. Your account was cancelled on time. Furthermore, BeenVerified has to remove adverse marks from your account or be charge 1500 from the credit bureaus. Look it up.
    Why do I care? Because I have free time to write and know business and how to fight adverse marks on credit reports. So your story does not sound valid. I agree that the some information on BeenVerified are outmoded, but the trick is to have a list of everyone you need information on. Even if it is 1000 people. You have six (6) days, just to be safe, to research everyone.
    My profession consist of doing background searches on people that I may do business with, and people from the pass on a personal level.
    So in conclusion, the site is not bad. I personally will never pay for it because some of their data have not changed since I first used it in 2010.
    I hoped this helped you.

    Do nor use this service, see my review above, BUT, I have to use these sites all the time, better ones than this one, It could be right, this is why, A It could be a Diff. person with the same DOB, that person could have used fake DOB and other info, as many felons have and do. The ages are estimates when using trial version!! Or could have hit people with the same name but diff. DOB. Not sure why you are looking…but be careful, if you are doing this on a boyfriend, you need to ask yourself, why would you go out with someone who you have to do a background check on….if its for safe dating then good for you. Type in Top Ten reviews of background check websites, and go with those!

    Sites like BeenVerified are “data dumps” that simply act as pipelines to readily available public information. They provide nothing special that a person with a little knowledge about how and some time can’t do better, and for free, on their own.

    Further, since this data dumping provides little filtering ability the data you get could, and usually is, chock full of misinformation that not only would be of no use to the user, it could actually defeat the purpose of using such a site in the first place (being, one would presume, getting an accurate picture of someone you are going to have dealings with).

    So save your money and simply learn how to access public information from your local agencies providing same. if you have to have an indepth criminal background check learn how to file a “Freedom of Information Act” request and give it time to go through channels.

    Folks, Dont waste your $$ I’ve been a career investigator NYPD DETECTIVE for over 30 years. These websites are scams. If ya really need hard core crime recs check. hire a P.I or go to the Jurisdiction and file FOIA request. in NYC You can use WEBCRIMS a free search by NYS Unified Court System. A county crime recs check can start around $70.00 retail Just check your local crime courts ect. Do your home work first dont get ripped off. (My good deed for 2012) Do a little phone detective work first by asking WHERE this nfo can be obtained. Good luck folks. (remember some crime recs can be sealed & you ll never get the info.) same holds true for adoption recs.

    Every damn company out there is wanting your hard earned money. From the gas company all the way down. You are FORCED to fork out the monies you break your very back for. Problem is is that most folks don’t use common sense. If it looks funny, smells funny or simply sends you doubtful vibes then use your inner sub-conscience and run in the other direction. Giving out personal information such as a credit card #’s should only be used through confirmed safe business sites.

    Hey it’s your money…do what you want with it. Seriously though if you just want to toss it out the window…you could simply give it to a better cause and help a homeless person for a change.

    You sound like a rep for the website, this site is a complete rip. They tried to charge me after I had canceled the “free” trial 2 days before it ended saying I did not give enough notice. If they thought you would actually use their service after you tried it for free, then they wouldn’t get your credit card info so they can charge you when you forget to cancel their “free” trial. Almost every person I have spoken to about this site said information is inaccurate and or false, I agree.

    To add another note, if your going to write a review and expect people to take your comments seriously, at least try to use a little grammar…

    I used it for the free period, forgot to call on the 7th day of the free trial, but on the 8th day called and they still gave me my money back, no hassle, no problem. I’m actually thinking of joining up for real now that I need a service like that, as when I was nosing around in the free period all the information on family and friends was astoundingly accurate and more to the point, complete. Liens, tax records, criminal stuff. I just tried Spokeo and they don’t offer any of that, plus 80% of their basic info was incorrect or out of date
