Complaint / review text:
I've used many websites over the years to conduct free searches for information on individuals, but decided to finally throw in the towel and pay for a search site. I used Instant Checkmate as I had heard it was a reputable site. My experience was exactly the opposite! It simply sucks you into their system once you provide payment and then requires you to pay for creating a PDF version of your report (???) and then withholds more data than it provides by offering to search "Premium Data Sources" for everything from Personal Data, Criminal Data, Business Data, Asset Data, Driving Record Data, Bankruptcy Data, and Licensing Data!
To top it all off, the data that they did provide was mostly inaccurate: they listed a single criminal data listing for someone of a completely different ethnicity; failed to include my adult children in Family/Known Associates; they did list an ex-wife of my father from 20 years ago which was surprising; someone with an FAA Pilot's license who's name did not even match mine; inaccurate LinkedIn Profile, failed to list any other social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Classmates, etc. This service provides nothing that you can't find with a couple of Google searches and is an absolute waste of money. This experience simply reminded me why I've fought the urge to pay for personal search information in the past!
