Complaint / review text:
I wanted to see if my stalker had a criminal background, so I paid my $20 to join. Looked up the stalker, was given a few details that I already knew from doing a Google search, such as address, spouse's name, and email addresses that I already knew. When I try to check criminal history, Spokeo informs me that I needed to cough up another $5 for a month's service. I pay, and search for her criminal history. Nothing shows up. I know that the stalker's husband has a criminal history, so I do a search on him. Nothing shows up. I search several more people who I know have criminal backgrounds. Nothing shows up.
I do a search on myself. I have never been arrested, so thankfully, nothing showed up, but all of my other background information was incorrect. If Google can provide simple information correctly for FREE, why can't Spokeo? And then I get a pop up saying that I had used up my twenty searches. TWENTY? Spokeo then asked me for more money to increase the number of names I could search. Why didn't they inform me up front that there was a limit? What a rip off!!!
