I called BeenVerified because I had received two unexpected charges on my credit card for monthly subscription fees. Samantha explained that I had a free trial membership, and I hadn't cancelled the membership, thus the charges. I told her that I didn't realize I had to cancel. She was very helpful and professional in her demeanor. She applied a credit back to my credit card for the amount of both charges. Throughout the call, Samantha was courteous and responsive to my questions. I was so pleased to receive such excellent customer service. Samantha is a credit to her company. I told her that she deserves a big raise and a day off, or an advancement to a higher position. Thank you.

I stumbled across this site one day when I was needing to verify a few things and people and I'm glad I did. Not only was they very informative but very accurate on what I needed. Then I realized how very protective they were of me and my info and how on too of things they kept me and my privacy, Private, anything that pertained to me was very secure and maintained and if anything happened or that they seen unusual they alerted me right away and handled everything else without me having to call multiple people letting them know what was going on with accountants etc. They care about you as you not just a number on their client roster. So yes I would recommend BeenVerified to anyone. I hate I have to let my membership go at this time only because of not having a job at the moment. But I will be back when I do. Thanks guys y'all are awesome. Keep it up.

    I am highly pleased with the young man who is solved my problems with Been Verified. Are use their service once and the system kept billing me month after month. This young man could have made this situation very difficult for me but he took the highroad and went to his supervisor and got me the rebates that I deserved. This individual gets five stars for his efforts. I've only given Been Verified four stars because they cause the problem by having a system that people end up subscribing to without their knowledge.

    BeenVerified response

    Hi Michael,

    We are happy that the representative went over and beyond to resolve the matter. We thrive to provide exceptional service, thank you for your review.

    When signing up for our unlimited background reports, the subscription will inform that it is auto-renewed. You can contact us to cancel at any time, and will not be billed for your next billing cycle.

    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

    Hi There,

    First we want to thank you for your service, Veteran! We are equally excited that you were able to locate your fellow Marines, this is a great testimonial! We're sorry to see you go, but glad you were able to try out our website. Please know that you always have access to log back in and reactivate if you need our services again in the future.

    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 found errors in my report and found that one place in the app it would not let you report it. I contacted customer service and talked to an excellent customer service representative that reported the problem and also was eager to help me with other things. Excellent customer service!

    I needed to find a person's phone number so I could notify them immediately that their pet was in local shelter. No time to wait for an email so I came across Beenverified.com and was offered a trial period for one dollar so yes I accepted! I totally forgot to cancel on time and called customer service and the lady I spoke with was very polite and actually made me wish I didn't need to cancel my subscription. Was such a nice conversation and I learned more about the site too so I hope that someday I can return and be a member again. I found info I needed on Beenverified.com and got my job done. Thank you.

    They will tell you you get 7 days free trial and you can cancel and not be charged. You call them to cancel. They tell you OK. 5 months later you notice you've been charged $26.95 and change. You contact them and they tell you you cannot call to cancel. There's a process you have to go through in order to cancel. They steal your money and then they won't refund it. A very dishonest company. Do not use them and do not even sign up for the free trial. It'll cost you!

    WOW! Is this site an impressive scammer! You are supposed to get 'secret' background checks on anyone. I decided to test this out and see what happens. Apparently, my mother is alive and well at age 96. News to me. She passed away over 30 years ago, and is now living at my father's condominium which he purchased after she died. My father has been deceased for nearly twenty years. I should go over there and say, "Hi mom and dad! I so happy to see you alive! Welcome back from the dead." My mother's 'closest' relative is my father's second wife also deceased but is alive and well at an address she never lived at. Great job here! 'Been Verified's' response is that they keep their records "up to date". Ha! I have news for you. You are well over 30 years out of date and all the contact information for phone numbers are numbers that never existed. What a scam! And don't believe the reviews. They are all fake. Best to keep your money safe and not waste it on this scammer.

    Hi Jane,

    We want to first offer our condolences for the loss of your mom and dad. BeenVerified is an easy-to-access collection of public record information. Sometimes the information collected in public data is not always 100% correct. We understand the sensitivity of this matter and we are happy to remove these reports for you. Please email support@beenverified.com for further assistance.
