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.
I looked up myself and almost everything they had about me was wrong. Horrible site. Seems like a scam to me. I certainly wouldn't trust in it hiring an employee or checking on a potential date. Never again.
Shady **! Paid the $1 fee for a quick report and got NOTHING in return. It just refreshed the screen and didn't give me the info for which I was paying the buck.
It auto enrolled me into auto renewal for a full sub. There's NO WAY to cancel it that I can find!
The site is so incorrect it's laughable!! I never lived in Texas, don't know any people associated with my name which is also incorrect!! How dare they put out this info to the public and try to ruin someone's 'stellar' reputation! I say try cause thank God no one has used them as a reference. Reputable business or people with half a brain wouldn't take this site seriously! If they have... Shame on them for looking at this site for someone's personal background info and believing it to be true! This site should be taken down period!!
On December 15, 2021, using PayPal, I authorized a $1.00 payment to MyLife.com for services they provided. Paypal confirmed the $1.00 charge, but that confirmation called for a "$99.90 USD next payment due on December 19, 2021". The documents from Paypal also showed that my account now contained a "MyLife $99.90 billing cycle every 3 months, until cancellation".
The statement from Paypal had a comment "To change or cancel automatic payment with MyLife.com, log into your PayPal account, go to your profile and choose Payment. Then click 'manage automatic payment'". I was not able to get to the feature to cancel the automatic payment, so I wrote to PayPal to cancel the future automatic payment and copied my USAA credit card company to not pay anything after the $1.00 authorized payment had processed. I believe that the MyLife firm uses these types of fraudulent billing practices with MANY others as well, and those practices need to be shut down. Thank you.
I signed up for the 3 day trial which I wish I didn’t do. I went to cancel day before it automatically renews but it’s been impossible! After several failed attempts to log in I figured I would just change my password. Well, the email they supposedly send to you so you can change your password, I never got! I requested it 5 diff times and never received 1 response so I could change my password! So, are they not letting me into my account because I’m still within the canceling time frame to be able to cancel it before they can automatically charge my card?
This is unbelievable & disgusts me even more after reading some of the other reviews on here! I figured best way is to email them my request to cancel since I can’t get into my account plus I’ll have proof with my date & times. I also sent another request to a diff dept email for them to delete all my info completely, just incase. It’s ridiculous how these people are allowed to keep scamming people!!!! Be careful do not sign up for this!! If you do its a huge nightmare to get out of. They should be shut down for fraud/scamming people!!!
Wanted to search a name. Do not be fooled by this website. You pay $1.00 and you end up being charged $99.00 AFTER AN HOUR BEWARE!!!! DO NOT GO TO THIS SITE!!! THESE SITES ARE OPERATED BY SCAM ARTIST. mylife-inc.com.
MyLife.com records False information, I’ve contacted them several times and they will Not remove the False information on my account. I asked them to also to delete my name & information from their website. I even bought a subscription to try to correct the information, that didn’t work! Not only is the information False, they have people listed on my account I’m not related to or even know who these people are! Employers look you up on their website and the information on there has kept me from getting jobs! I explained all this to them but they DIDN’T care. This MyLife.com needs to be taken down especially now after I read others complains regarding this same matter. This is a horrible website and company.
I purchased the temporary membership, and there was wrong information about family members and employment. I called and the operator was very rude and it was a hassle to cancel my subscription. This is a full scam.
As others have said, this is a scam. It has my address from 2007, and says I have a criminal history and a “score” of 1.7. All the listed family members are nobody I’ve heard of. Avoid these types of sites.
I signed up for the $1 three day trial. I looked at the worthless and incorrect information, and then cancelled the trial, which they make exceptionally difficult. But the website did display a page that said my subscription was cancelled. Then, three days later I was charged $55. I called customer service immediately and was repeatedly lied to by their representative. He then called me a list saying that if I had actually cancelled the subscription that it would have displayed a confirmation number, and without it there was nothing he could do. I did ended up using a curse word, and he threatened to hang up me...it was the word **. (I just wanted to clarify that it was not directed at the rep.) I repeated my point that this was a unauthorized charge and would be contesting it with my card company immediately after hanging up.
At this point the representative says he can authorise a downgrade in my subscription service. They would refund me a little more than half of the charge, but I would still be getting charged $19.95 or $24.95, I can't recall exactly. Since I wanted at least the $30 back or whatever I said that was better than nothing, and to go ahead and process that. Gave me a cancellation confirmation number and told me I should have an email in 5 minutes. I asked if his name or employee number would be present in that email because I was filing a Better Business Bureau report and I wanted to give them accurate information on who I spoke with.
It was at this point that he said "he had just been authorized to go ahead and process my full refund and cancel my subscription". Interesting how it authorized within seconds, not even long enough for him to explain the situation to a supervisor or make a special request. He said the refund would process in 3 to 5 days but it all depended on my bank. I did get a confirmation email that said they would be refunding me the entire amount, but that remains to be seen. Don't fall for their one-day trial, the information they provide is inaccurate at best, and the "score" is worthless in reality. If you really want some information use one of the well known services that provide a one-time fee for the information not a subscription plan. This is an outright fraud. They just want to steal your money.
Mylife,'s profile had me associated with people I never heard of and listed me as having lived in places in which I have never been. My reputation was declared to be poor--10% below the national average! The site proclaimed that I have a court record (divorce court maybe??). And of course most people reading that wouldn't pay the fee to see the purported record, so might imagine anything! I'm a poor widow existing on SS and a pension, with only a mortgaged house and junker car as equity, yet was alleged to be worth $250,000--$500,000 with an annual income of from 70 to 79 thou! (I wish!).
Even public info about my property was screwed up! The accompanying photos were of people and a dog I've never seen. When I called the company, the rep gave me the mandatory spiel about paying to have other websites' info removed. Why would anyone trust Mylife?! I told the girl that I don't care if accurate info about me is posted online. I was promised that my profile would be removed in a few days. We'll see.
Do not put much faith in the information provided by this website. I have found that their "reputation" score is based upon much false information. For instance, my family profile lists people I'm not even remotely related to and don't even know. Next, mylife.com lists previous known residences. Again, information is incorrect. Although mylife.com has a disclaimer that its information cannot be used for certain activities, there is no way that mylife.com can legally make or enforce that promise. Here's their disclaimer:
"You can use MyLife.com® as a valuable resource to learn about anyone you meet online, especially on dating sites and in online marketplaces, to help prevent becoming the victim of fraud, or worse. You can search to find information on anyone. Information on MyLife may NOT be used for employment, credit, housing or any transactions where the Fair Credit Reporting Act is involved.

Mylife.com information has been used by a person in my HOA community to ruin my reputation including my attempt to run as a Director of the HOA association that we both live in based upon quite a bit of false information; false information that has publicly turned a number of people against me without ever meeting me or getting to know me and that information has been shared on a public forum known as Nextdoor.com so that my competitor candidates would gain community support.
As far as I'm concerned, Mylife.com needs to make sure what they are offering as true and correct information is just that. Mylife.com false information has ruined my life in a community I had hoped to live in until I die, but due to mylife.com's false, negative information, it appears that I'm going to have to move just to stop the public and personal harassment I have been subjected to even after obtaining a temporary restraining order against the individual spreading the mylife.com information.
This company is publishing fraud information.. There is another women 4 years older than me with the same first and last name. We live in the same city right now. This company is stating her information and mine is the same. It says I have a long list of traffic crimes and I have never had a ticket my entire life. I contacted them to remove my information several times and they won't comply..
Full of lies and half truths. Got on a chat with the public relations person, Paublo. He said they got their information for 35+ other public sites and if I signed up they would help me clear up the discrepancies in these sites. I asked them to remove my information from their site and I got the reply "Can I help you with anything else?" IMHO they are blood sucking scum who make up sensationalism to sell information. My report was full of lies about court rulings against me. I am a retired CPA. I would not have been able to be a CPA if any of that was true.
This site states that I have a criminal record - a complete lie. They should be shut down. I believe they are trying to scare people into buying a subscription to remove information about themselves that is not true. Instead I called their 800 number and explained that I would have my attorney contact them regarding the slanderous information they published about me to the public without my permission, and Voila! - they removed my profile from their system.
One day, I look up the balance on my fiance's SSDI DIRECT EXPRESS CARD. I had NUMEROUS transactions from MyLife. I immediately start calling without success so, being stubborn, The EMAIL BATTLE BEGAN REGARDING FRAUD, REIMBURSMENT AND LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM. That started in January of 2021. Today, June 3, 2021, I go into MY PERSONAL EMAIL... LOL OMG IT'S NOT FUNNY, I have a renewal notice for myself from MyLife saying I need to do nothing, they will automatically renew my subscription! I am so beside myself, here I am. If there is anyone, out there on this ConsumerAffairs page that can guide me to a outstanding attorney to sue this company please.... Email me, find me on FB anything. I refuse to let these ignorant, unprofessional, money hungry jerks win. No way, not now, not by me! Thank you for reading. Penny **. Maine.
They keep taking unauthorized payments out of my checking account even though I cancelled my subscription. To top it all off, I'm not even getting the premium service in exchange! They just took another 44.95 for 3 months of future service I won't be getting! I'm sure it's perfectly legal in today's world. They NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY!!!
I signed up to do a background check on a date. To see how accurate the information was, I ran a few friends and relatives. Most of their information was incorrect, except for things you can find online such as employer or address. If you know how to use LinkedIn or the phone book, you can do this. One said a cousin had a criminal record (it turned out to be a speeding ticket). It said my date was married (he is not). I cancelled the "free" trial and took a screenshot. I'm sure you can guess what happened next; I was charged for "renewing" my monthly subscription. So I called the customer service line, armed with my cancellation screenshot and email confirmation that I had cancelled. They said I had done "too many" searches, and that the "free" trial is only for one search. Lesson learned.
Do Not! I repeat, Do Not use this company! They are a total scam. I could not find anything about the people I searched, was double billed, which they would not remove. They were sued according to ABC News as a scam. A waste of hard earned money. Don't know how they are still in business after being sued plus the fact that they are completely worthless!!!
This website is providing misleading information. I checked my own name just to see what came up, and it just wants you to subscribe to monthly fees. It indicated that I had been arrested and this is simply NOT true. As far as I am concerned, this website is fraudulent and should be taken down. Individuals that have been harmed by false information should be reimbursed. I also checked my husband’s information, it too, was all wrong. It had him listed as “single” and related to several people in our neighborhood. As far as I am concerned, it is just a money scam.
I went on MyLife one time but didn’t buy a subscription. They billed me 64.95 in February but I did get that back. On March 11, 2021 they billed me again for 19.95 and I called them the same day and was assured the money would be returned. I called again on the 17th and was told that my money would be returned. Instead of returning my money they charged 19.95 again. No one speaks good English so I have no idea where they are located. I have a confirmation number that I got today but still no money returned.
Okay, that's a joke? I was born in France, I live in France since my birth and never go to United States but by curiosity I search about myself. The exact age, the exact location, the exact social sites I'm in, but.. According to the sites, I was arrested in 2019. But I wasn't even there! So I have a criminal report, who doesn't even exist because I wasn't even there and I live in France. Wth.???
MyLife.com is a complete scam. They say that someone is searching for you so you pay a dollar. Then you still can't see who the person is because it's no one. A week later they hit your account 4 times with 4 different amounts. Please beware!!
I have already requested four times for Mylife.com to remove my profile containing inaccurate and false information that can ruin my online reputation. I do not want my name connected with their site, but mylife.com refuse to delete my profile. How is this legal? How can they morally and ethically provide negative information regarding reputation scores when the company itself has terrible online reputation reviews? They are not credible, or a reliable source. Mylife.com is making money off hurting people’s online reputations. How are they helping? The more sites that post negative information, the easier it is to Google and find more negative information on someone.
Mylife.com needs to exposed, shut down, and held accountable for abusing their power online to make money off of people solely for their own personal gain. Are they a judicial system or a credit reporting agency? They are collecting information like “hearsay.” Most negative information is removed from a credit report after 7 years. How can they continue to report information that no longer even appears on someone’s credit report?? Just because someone was going through circumstantial difficulties, doesn’t mean it should not define their entire life and online reputation. A website needs to be developed for the sole purpose of exposing and reporting websites who provide negative online reputation information. See how they like it having their company’s reputation scrutinized online? Not sure how a company can give out reputation reviews, when mylife.com is one of the most hated online sites out there. Shame on you!
Mylife.com IS A SCAM AND IS FRAUDULENT AND ILLEGAL! As everyone knows, this ** website has inaccurate information about them. It has inaccurate information about me! I want to be removed from their website. I want the website to be taken down. I want my refund! I know there is a lawsuit against Mylife.com and hope and pray that not only the website is shut down but the CEO, Jeffrey Tinsley, (firstname.lastname@example.org) has his "license" revoked.
They took $67.95 from my bank without my authorization. The representative I spoke to (outside of the USA) said there was a "computer glitch" that caused me to be charged - FRAUDULENTLY! I asked to be transferred to a representative inside the USA, and that request was flat-out denied! Anyone can go to anyone's "page" and alter/edit their personal information. ANYONE! I can go from being Christian to Atheist at any time by ANYONE who goes to my "page" and changes it!
This happened to me over the Summer! This cannot continue! When is someone going to take down this website and revoke this criminal's "license". I'm getting impatient! I have reported Mylife.com and CEO, Jeff Tinsley, to the BBB, FTC, CA Attorney General, CA Department of Consumer Affairs, etc., etc., etc. I am about to file my own lawsuit. I reported that not only did they fraudulently charge me $67.95 for which I requested a refund but STILL have not received one but also reported that the information they have about me is FALSE! I have emailed these criminals repeatedly about the refund and my personal information but get NO response! This is illegal! Do something!!!!
I have called MyLife and asked them to delete my information from their site. They said they would. They did not. All that happened is I continued to get even more spam stating I was affiliated with "two damaging" associates, negative personal reviews, sites with my info needing removal. Then they said two people were viewing my "reputation score". The obvious inference is, that those nasty damaging associates are after me, without actually saying it. I receive spam from them several times a week. When I call them to find out who or what, they says the file has been deleted, yet sends me more spam indicating it's not deleted. My Life was started in 2002 by Jeffery Tinsley and is now worth enough to fight any legal battles and pay anyone off with a settlement. In July 2020, the US Department of Justice filed lawsuit against them for their questionable business practices. Good for them!
MyLife is a scam that should be shut down. The first subscription basically gives you very little new information from what you see in the free section, so they try to scam you a second time by offering a premium membership for the information you thought you were getting with the first purchase. I cancelled my membership the same day I purchased, but still stuck for the initial membership cost. DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAM!
