Consumer Complaints and Reviews
Back in Feb of 2015 my husband signed up for the Found Money because they said he had money. They did the search and he was told that the money that was found he could not access with no reasoning so he asked the account be discontinued and they didn't. They continued to pull money from our bank account. Took me a while to contact them because their email was no good and when I called the first number it rejected us. Finally got through and they said my Husband never cancelled the order, I was standing next to him when he did. I was finally able to get the last charges reversed of 49.95 but they kept saying they were finding stuff. This website is the biggest ripoff around and I can't believe it's been endorsed by several TV programs. Not to mention all the other hidden charges they put on you for services you don't even know you have or use.
I purchased 1-year unlimited searches for $24.95. I did many searches for all family and friends, both living and deceased. After many searches and only 24 hours later, it told me I have no more searches for my account and prompts me to buy more searches. Why sell something describing it as being unlimited searches for a year and cut it off the very next day? This site is a scam.
They charged me a $19.95 fee to search for money. They stated that I had $845.58 but absolutely no way to contact them to get additional info. Their site just keeps bringing you back to the page where you must pay again. I see other complaints about this company.
I paid $19.95 for Visa account search membership. I was unable to get onto the site. It was blank and stated invalid.
I purchased a membership for 19.95 after seeing my name on the free search several times. After giving them my 19.95 and becoming a member I realized I was scammed because it would not give ANY results, just a pop-up that said that I had no more searches left. Well, I did not get even one. I have attempted to email the contact us address and it must be fictitious because every time I attempt to send it I get a message returned stating that the email did not go through. I double and tiple checked the address to make sure that it was right.
If you are tempted to buy a membership, don't. Even if you do the free search and your name appears, don't be fooled like I was. So much for Oprahs credibility! She should have done some research on this guy. Evidently he has been brought to court in Canada many times, from what I have read.
I had 19.95 stolen from me.

searches credit. I use the internet regular now for purchases, and I am terrified now of scams. Please shut down this site, so that it doesn't happen to someone else.
MY CREDIT CARD WAS CHARGED AND I WAS NEVER GIVEN ANY FURTHER INFO ON ANYTHING. I WOULD TYPE IN MY NAME LIKE ASKED AND IT WOULD SAY SEARCH NOT FOUND BUT BEFORE I MADE THE PAYMENT IT GAVE MY A WHOLE LIST OF AMOUNTS OF MONEY FOUND IN MY NAME.
I FELT SCAMMED! YES, IT WAS NOT THAT MUCH MONEY BUT I WOULD LIKE IT BACK BECAUSE I WASN'T SATISFIED WITH SERVICES GIVEN.
I've been trying to cancel their services and everytime I try to email them it comes back unable to send message.
DAYS AND THEY SAID I DIDN'T GIVE IT A CHANCE.
Web site offered a free search of my name to find potential money due to me. I used the free search and it came up with two accounts in my name. After paying for the REAL search, guess what? Nothing shows up in my name. I requested a refund & was told you only get a refund if your name shows up & you're unable to get the funds.
I can't believe that Maury & Oprah would condone this kind of a rip-off! I actually had second thoughts immediately after buying the searches and immediately asked that the charge NOT be made to my credit card. They refused and charged my card anyway!
which I paid for nothing and they have my credit card information. I'm praying that they won't make any additional charges to my account.
money order for a password or membership or something and have heard no response. I even contacted them through US mail and still no response. I want to know if I reallt do have lost money of mine out there some where. They always will have a thing in my email that there is money in my name but I can't access it without the password that I can't get. I am going to try to mail them again and see what happens. I hope I get some answers.
I received a notice to claim my money. I had used the service in the past and totally, purchased nine searches. I tried to do a search using my nickname, Patsy, and my Christian name at birth Julia. I put a /between the names. I was charged two searches, and was not given instructions on how to do the search correctly. I feel I should have not been charged for the two searches. I think the Foundmoney.com should have helped me do the search properly and only charged me for correct method of searching.
I paid for the two searches that were done incorrectly, and was not given help to redue the searches, instead I was charged first.
as per your Guarantee.
I called because they were very quick to charge my card for the services. At first it did not work and then they made it work for me and when I asked for a refund they gave me a hard time.
They should have a spot for a middle initial on the system, you pay for a search that shows you even has warrants out on you. NOW THATS A SYSTEM EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT !!!!!! You can get up in the morning and find out who wants you the police or not maybe Found money should be on the list.....
I have little or no money which seems to attract people to this site now I spent money I don't have to get money that is not mine and I want it returned
fee to retrieve this information..and now I'm wondering if I ever did have any money owed to me.
years. They knew the exact towns name which she resided and her bank was located so I thought this was all legit. Any help on how I can find out if there's really unclaimed money for me?
WITH MY CREDIT CARD.I HAVE STARTED TO USE THE SITE RIGHT AWAY.IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF MY SEARCHES , I WAS CUT OFF AND I EMAIL THEM AND INFORMED THEM OF WHAT HAD HAPPEN TO ME,THEY E MAIL ME BACK WITH A INCOMPLETE SEARCH OF SOME NAMES AND NOT ALL OF THE NAME FOR [CHARLES .....].
I AM NOT AT ALL PLEASE WITH THIS AND WOULD LIKE A REFUND ALSO.I ONLY TRUST THIS BECAUSE OF OPRHA AND MARVY NAME,SO I FELT REALLY SAFE AND TRUSTED FOUND MONEY.COM...............JOYCE......
I WAS VERY HURT AND SAD ,I KEPT ON TRYING TO RECIEVED MY SEARCH AGAIIN AND FOUND OUT I WAS BEING CHARGE FOR THAT SEARCH ALSO.SO YOU WILL USE UP YOUR SEARCHES 'UNNESSERARY' THIS IS NOT GOOD OR HEALTHY FOR ANY ONE WHO LOOKING ON THIS SITE'NOW I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BEEN HAD !
I paid for three searches, got only one and cannot access to use the other two. Tried their helpline numerous time, with no response. I will dispute the charges, vigerously!
Paid for nothing and am extremely upset and disappointed. Will entail disputing a charge and probably consulting my attorney. The $20 is too small to take to court, but large enough to impact my household. I am devasted to the point of being physically ill.
I was told that my name was in their database, so I purchased 3 searches for 20.00 dollars. It was not even me. I only used 1 search which booted me out anyway. I faxed them as well as emailed them. I requested a full refund of my 20.00 dollars and they are completely ignoring me. They should not be in business if they are going to lie and steal peoples money. I just want my money back.
Received email about lost funds I searched website saw my name on several pages. Sent them old addresses which supposedly were needed. First incident I was mailed info for my deceased father and my mother which I could not use. I had asked them prior should I search under my mothers name which is banks or my fathers which is Smith they decided to check without notifying me and sent me info I could not use. I sent it back then received info listing my name under Banks. I contacted two places and no funds were mine. Sent them and faxed them this info on aug 12 02 was due to receive my $20.00 thirty days later sep 12 to date have not received after several letters, faxes and calls.
I will no longer purchase any product that is sponsored by claims from celebrities to be legitimate businesses. Would like my funds back and I abhor that I even passed on this information to co-workers and friends now I have had to tell them my horror story to keep them from making the same mistake. I feel that since they have failed to reimburse me thus far a penalty should be placed on my refund until it is finally paid or if it is ever paid.
i entered my grandmother and grandfathers name in, and my grandfather was not there my my grand mother was,so later i checked it again and it wasnt there so i called to see if she had received it and she said no so i dont understand where it went. anyway i put my grand fathers name back in to see what it would do and it showed up well my grandfather has been dead for years i know that it wasnt there the first time why did it just pop up?
i have panic attacks and anxiety attacks and when i read this it really stirred up feelings.
TYEY TOLD ME FOR 30.00 I COULD SEE SIX SITES ON THEIR WEB AND GET ONE FREE.AND THE SERCH WAS FREE I GOT ONE SITE I LOOKED UP ONE SITE AND THEN THEY SAID I HAD NO MORE CREDITS LEFT
THEY WANTED MORE MONEY
I bought a set of three searches. My password never worked, I was unable to use them. When I contacted them, they told me I was using it incorrectly and to try again. This just used another search and then told me my password was once again invalid. To this day I have been unable to get my money back, or get a response from them.
At the time, I could not afford to lose $20.00. I saw the plug for this on Oprah and thought it was reputable.
