A lot of these sites tell you that you can look up anyone for free, it ain't free. Even the "Freebie" sites, you never get nothing but a bunch of unwanted phone calls. Any site should have to tell you there IS a FEE, instead of you taking the time trying to find something out and then they want you to pay for the info. It's FRAUD

Like all the others I was duped. I can't even locate known persons such as relatives and coworkers. I asked for a refund also and got the same message about their terms. Wasted time and money. I'll see if the NY Attorney General has anything to say.

When you go into the site it leads you to believe thast for one special price you will have unlimited use of any kind of certificate or document you might need. I paid the $22.99 price. Once you've searched a name and found it, to continue at a members only price of $2.95 for 3 days or if you don't cancel in those 3 days a $39.95 recurring charge. Buyer beware !! when contacted they said they would not refund my money even though I was unable to view any files whatsoever. Don't get scammed by this company like I did....!!!

I wished I had read the reviews on this rip-off company before I paid them! They offer no more information that you can get using Google or Yahoo! Total RIP-OFF!!! I tried to get my money back after a couple hours of paying, but they sent me the "Terms" that were listed and I was duped!!! Stay Away!!! Do not send them any money!!!

I sent this to their customer service people:
"This service is an amazing ripoff. Despite paying $14.99 for one year's access and $19.90 for access to "EXCLUSIVE PREMIUM DATABASES" and "V.I.P People Search DATABASES", no usable data is produced without next paying $2.95 for a four-day pass to Intelligator. Even then, Intelligator produces a bare minimum of information (and fails to find records that manifestly exist -- because I've found them elsewhere) and suggests that you can get the information you want if you pay $29.95 for a "Premium" search. (By the way, your use of the term "premium" to describe different services, some of which are free and some not, may yet get you into legal trouble.) So the *real* price of usable information (since I refuse to pay for that, I will give you the benefit of the doubt that the information it produces will be "usable") is $67.90. And that doesn't include the recurring $19.95/month charge for Intelligator if you use it more more the the few days included in the $14.95.

"I intend to send this to the Federal Trade Commission."

I am filing the FTC complaint as I write this.

It is a total scam. The worst website I have encountered. Evan after you pay your money you still cannot access the information.

This site is a total waste of time and money. DO NOT USE IT!!! You will get pulled in saying you will get information. Then pay the charge BUT in the end they will continue to ask for more money... and more money... and more money. If you have any information at all then go to WHITEPAGES.COM. This site is a scam

I went to this site for a one time sign up fee for a year - on sales - to do background checks. One you sign up and pay a year for $19.95, then you can't find anything on a person unless you then sign up for intelligator for $2.95 for 4 days and a committment of anothter monthly fee of $19.95 if you don't cancel the 4 day option. then you go on and cannot get into any of teh intelligator sites unless you again sign up for more money. it never stops. And then when you use the emails to cancel or complain - guess what - they come back and non deliverable. I want my money back and if you have any ideas on how to get that to happen, please write a review.

SCAM site. you pay money for access only to have to pay for more. You don't actually get anything. I have tested several items that should have been found easily and they came back with nothing. This site is listed under several different domain names. I also found them on It is all the same group of crooks. Spend your money elseware.

I got ripped off for 35 dollars. I could only access address and birthdate for people I submitted. Anything else prompted me to pay more even though I purchased the premium account.
It didn't even have my father's name in it.
It is the biggest scam ever. Don't buy!!!!
