Perhaps in my last review on Spokeo I didnt make it clear: Do not even sign up for a 99 cent search because once they have your financial information you are sucked in to never-ending charges without notification and hoops to jump through to get out. A Spokeo representative will try to defend or explain away such deceit but he cant explain away all the 1-star reviews calling Spokeo a SCAM! If so many people have had such a negative experience with Spokeo, including me, the problem is not with the reviewers, but with Spokeo itself.
The site is deceptive in their practices, period. Believe the negative reviews and dont fall for their hidden traps. It is a premier online scam!

Do not give Spokeo any financial information! Nothing is free and they ultimately charge you monthly payments without notification of any sort once they get your credit card number. No notification of renewal nothing except a monthly charge that is pretty well impossible to cancel.
Be aware: They write their own positive reviews, so heed the 1-star reviews that dominate their review page. Dont get caught up in their web of deceit like I did.




I used Been Verified ONCE and after searching for a name, I keep getting pop-ups on my computer about the person I searched for. They don't stop! And when I try to contact them, they ask for a member ID, but I never received a member ID! Then I had to send an email to them to ask them to leave me alone and stop disrupting my work day. Who knows how long it will take before the pop-ups stop! I will never use this site again. All the information you want (come to find out) is available online with a little time spent digging. Been Verified is a waste of money.


I left a 1-star review for this company (completely deserved) that has since been removed. If you scroll through the reviews, notice that an entire string of SCAM reviews are suddenly interrupted by many 5-star reviews. This is not a random pattern and leads to the obvious conclusion that they are feeding fake positive reviews to increase their overall score. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! IT TRULY IS A SCAM!
