    I had been searching for over a decade for some Marines I'd served with in the 1980's. After years of searching the web and not being a Facebook user I was coming up empty. With BeenVerified I was able to find nearly everyone I'd hoped to find with the exception of a few guys I didn't have enough info on. If you know their name, approximate age and where they're from or where they've lived you WILL find them. Unfortunately I waited too long to get serious about my search, two of the Marines on the top of my list had recently passed away. I had to mourn two of my friends in one day. I kept BeenVerified for a month, looking up everyone I could think of, then cancelled my subscription. I highly recommend Been Verified and wouldn't hesitate to use their service again.

    BeenVerified response

    I gave "a friend" of mine my cell phone number. A few days later I got a disgusting text which I knew was not from him. I messaged him and he goes 'oh that phone broke..(? Uh??..)- Obviously he bought some stupid phone off the street, and I got hacked. I got NumberGuru to see what this number was, etc with the disgusting text...Turns out it didn't have "a home" and most likely spam. At least I knew. I blocked the number, etc. What I like most about NumberGuru is it let me cancel, easily and effortlessly...No surprise charges on my card, etc. They responded right away and confirmed my cancelation. I will DEFINITLEY use them again if I need to track down a number!

      I'm in X private investigator, been in the business 45 years. I've used everyone in the marketplace as a skip tracing Source. This company is by far the best. Try them. You will never leave them. They give you all your data in an Easy-to-Read format. Their competitors cannot compete with the amount of information they provide and their accuracy. I've used everyone. Take my advice. These guys are the best. Try the rest. You'll see I'm telling the truth.

      Contacted Been Verified to resolve an issue with our account(s) and dealt with ADAM **. Extremely knowledgeable, understood our issue and moved to resolve it immediately. Additionally referred part of the issue to customer service, for follow up in 24-48 hours. Extremely happy with their service, I have never had to deal with anyone personally at their company and this was a pleasure.

      I accidentally forgot to cancel my trial period for $1, the customer service dept gave full refund of charges past the trial period since I did not use the product after trial period. I can't help but congratulate them on excellent customer service.

      It was so easy to cancel my Beenverified account. Nicole was super. It was quite apparent to me that she was genuinely interested in assisting me with my request. She was very personable and professional. The service works great, easy to maneuver thru it. It’s just that I didn’t have a pertinent use for it is all.

      None of the data concerning my husband's listing is accurate. I looked at my listing and it is inaccurate also. Details are important on a site purporting to "verify" data. My neighbors listed had not lived in that space for 10 years or more.

      Kind of ironic that a company that does background checks is itself a dishonest company. Buyer beware of the fine print! This company ensured that the monthly billing was in very fine print, the kind that one needs to dig around to find and then use a magnifying glass to read. They took money out of my credit card account every month until I saw it (lesson learned - I will be checking monthly statements carefully from now on). They then refused to pay it back. To add insult to injury, they asked me to tell my credit card company to back off since BeenVerified did me the kindness of closing my account. If you need a background check done, I recommend going somewhere else.
