What is BeenVerified and how does it work?

BeenVerified allows users to run multiple searches at an affordable price. While the ability to access private information might put some on edge, BeenVerified provides clear guidelines as to what customers can and cannot do using public records. Previous customers have used the service to verify the identity of partners from online dating websites, find their biological parents, run background checks and look for long-lost friends or relatives.

Its customer service representatives in New York City and Miami are available seven days a week to assist customers with searches or record access. BeenVerified is also developing a service for businesses that will let companies generate leads, discover customer information and find contacts on LinkedIn to grow their enterprises.

    I love the app. I just couldn't afford it this month. I was trying to get the dollar one and so now I'd click me over to the one month amount and I couldn't afford that. I talked to somebody Sunday and she said that my refund will be coming soon. It's been a week so I decided to text today. I talked to Rona and she set me up and said my refund should be here within 10 days and asked about if I like to have. I said, "Yeah I love the apps. Very good." I definitely recommend it to my friends and if I had the money amount I would definitely get the one month one next time which I'm going to. Hopefully you guys are help me out and get me a free one.

    I wanted to briefly share a success story with you because your service was an integral part of how I was reconnected with my half-brother and half-sisters recently. I am 45 years old currently, and have never met my biological father since he left my mother shortly after she had me. For years, I have always wondered why and wondered where he could be living.

    After a pretty intense therapy session about that, I decided to use BeenVerified to do a search on him and see what I can find. Unfortunately, I discovered that he had deceased in 2018, but under the possible relatives section, there were a few names and email addresses attached to them, so I decided to give it a shot and emailed one. To my disappointment, it came back as undeliverable, so I emailed another one that was listed and got a response.

    Since then, I have been in communication with one of three siblings that I was not aware of that were born after my dad remarried. We have all since reconnected and had a phone conversation and are now discussing a possible trip to meet for the first time in our lives. I am the oldest and the youngest is 36. I can't thank you enough for the service that you provide and how I have been reunited with long lost siblings. I could not have done it without BeenVerified, so thank you very much. Keep up the good work!

      At first I was annoyed because I'd been billed for an account I canceled and then I had to chat to talk to a person. But the person was amazing and found an account I had made under a different email but had never used. He immediately canceled the account for me and got my refund sent out right away! He was extremely helpful, name started with a J.... I feel terrible I can't remember it.

      BV rep patiently worked with me as we tried to retrieve all of my info that was there before my account expired. He was great and tried everything to get the info back for me. After all his efforts, I checked my email and I'd received a link to reactivate my account and in doing the link all my info was waiting for me. He never once said he couldn't help but said we'd get the issue fixed and we did. Outstanding BV account representative. Thanks.

      Messaged this individual to cancel my subscription and obtain a refund. They were very professional, quick and easy to talk to. Friendly service and didn’t complicate the issue. Absolutely would love to have them again! The service itself however, sadly left a bit to be desired. I was hoping to find the children of an individual as the service promised relatives as a possible search result, but it seems that children under 30-35 are a little harder to come by. Other than that the experience was pleasant.

      I was very upset after seeing that I got charged an autorenewal fee. But the customer service was very responsive, professional, and helpful! They responded within a few minutes, explained the situation, and got it all sorted out! It was a pleasure working with them, and they were able to resolve the situation.

      Even though my issue couldn’t be fixed right here and then, my support agent Archie was at least as helpful as he could be. My problem seemed to be kind of out of his control but he was quick to respond and didn’t seem like he was just copy and pasting messages from a book. Hopefully me writing this for him/her grants him some sort of reward or recognition cause he was as great as he could be.

      I needed a refund after being billed after the free trial and there was absolutely no hassle. The customer service representatives were quick to respond and found all of my information quickly and efficiently. They also responded quickly and communicated effectively, clearly, professionally. While I don’t need their services at the moment, I recommend BeenVerified to everyone.
