I signed up for the $9.95 package to just check on someone. It kept asking me to upgrade, I didn't want to upgrade. I called to cancel and the lady said it was canceled and gave me a confirmation number. I looked at my bank account and they are charging the $59.85 package. I called my bank to stop payment. Hopefully it works. They will take your hard earned money in a New York second!! Warn everyone about these SCAMMERS!!!
Mylife was just recently sued into oblivion. So much so, that it can’t even afford to pay the fine. Some companies were actually using this site to make hiring decisions. Also, some lawyers were using the site to try and discredit their opposition. Thanks to the lawsuit, mylife can’t be used in a consumer reporting capacity. There is now a blurb on their site indicating that information cannot legally be used to make hiring/financial decisions.
One of the biggest issues with mylife.com is that anyone can leave a positive or negative remark anonymously. Someone might not even know who you are, and can leave a negative review without using their name or even a summary as to why they don’t like you. If this happens, you have to pay in order to either have the profile locked or the anonymous review removed.
Speaking of reviews on mylife.com, the Ceo of mylife.com is Jeffrey Paul Tinsley 48 of Los Angeles California. I think that everyone should leave a review for Mr. Tinsley so that he knows exactly how people feel about him as a person for creating mylife.com. He currently enjoys an excellent social score. I have provided the direct link for anyone that chooses to leave a review. In case, the link is removed, just go to mylife and search for his information. You can do this absolutely free.

This site is definitely playing in people’s fears. There is a bright-side to all of this. You can very easily have your name removed from their site. Send them an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know to remove you from their website. If you are dead-set on having your information removed from their site, let them know that you are fully prepared to hire a consumer protection lawyer if you have to. Make sure to include every variation of your name that you have found. When I went through the removal process, there were 6 different variations of my name and I have only gone by one of the names they had on their site. Companies like this shouldn’t even be allowed to exist, but it does. So, stand up for yourself and be prepared to use all legal remedies available to you.

Chose shortest subscription. Charged $155 for a YEAR. Told that I used up my year's "credits", which were never mentioned. Two more charges appeared, apparently triggered by popups. Nothing but circular talk and random details when I called customer service. Fake "supervisor" prompting agent whom I caught giving incorrect information several times.
I searched several companies that offer services similar to that of MyLife for information on a job candidate. Those companies provided almost all of the information I wanted, so I asked MyLife to conduct a search. Its search did not produce any new information. In fact for most fields of inquiry, MyLife did not have most of the information produced by a couple of other companies.
This site is completely and wholly a deceptive and fraudulent site. I was initially charged $6.95 for an incomplete report, and moments later, my card was charged another $14.95. Then this morning, when I logged in, I saw another $28.95 being charged to my credit card for a service I never authorized. I contacted my credit card company and they declined the latest charge, and the 2nd charge is in dispute. If you find yourselves being defrauded by MyLife, call your credit card company and have them put a vendor block on MyLife. They deserve to be put out of business.
I did a search in my own name. Most information was not available or it was over 20 years old. My current address was not listed. My telephone number and address were incorrect. I paid $14.95 to receive an incomplete/incorrect report.
I undertook their offer of a 7-day free trial. On day 3, I called to cancel and was told that the cancellation date would be on the 22nd of February. My current credit card statement shows 2 charges for 29.95 (2/24 and 3/24) and a 99.90 charge on 3/20. All of these are after the Feb., 22nd cancellation date! Today, they tell me they have no record of me cancelling my account and continued to "sell'' me on their services. They literally have stolen $159.80 from me through their deceitful business practice. I asked for a refund but this request was refused! I am far from the only person to have had this experience with this organization. SCAM... FRAUD... They have a C- rating and it should be much lower!
This site emailed me saying they had information about me. The email looked like a scam so I looked up the site and it looked like crap. Then I found an article from 2011 about how there was a lawsuit against them for scamming people out of money and having incorrect information about the people supposedly on the site. Then I found myself here reading multiple peoples reviews about being scammed by said site. Why is this scammer site still in operation? Why did the lawsuit not continue? This site is a front to bait people and steal their money while giving no real information about the people they are looking into. It needs to be shut down as I could see many people who are not as aware of scammers getting the same email I did and following through with signing up to see what “damaging info they have on you and how it could effect your reputation”… They basically try to scare people in to signing up. Disgraceful.
They charged me without my consent 3 different transactions today! I literally argued with them about the illegal transactions they did!! Said they couldn't refund or reverse anything!! Well I did get it handled!! However I'm thinking lawyer, consumers, and those affected by their misleading ways come together and make them stop stealing from consumers and falsifying backgrounds on individuals and neighbors.
I had a 3 day trial and they charged the full month before the three days were up. I called, cancelled, refunded, and was charged *again* the Next month. Screenshot small print bc they will lie to you.
