    DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE. I signed up and paid for one month in January, 2020. I cancelled later that month. In February, March, and April they billed my credit card again. My bank flagged some of the charges, but they kept coming. I finally reached someone who agreed to cancel the account. This company engages in completely unethical business practices. There are many more services to help you find people. Use them instead. Don't get ripped off.

    Peoplefinders advertised "free" service to look up a person. Once you go through all their processes, you think you're getting your info only to find out on the very last screen that comes up, they're charging you for their service. Where I come from, that's called false advertising, bait & switch, an unethical and illegal. I'm sure the Consumer Fraud Division of the State's Attorney General's office there in Sacramento, CA. would like to investigate Peoplefinders. I'll be submitting my complaint with their office shortly. -Dave.

      I used the service of PeopleFinders today for checking basic information about a lady. I applied for a one-time service. I got a pdf file with the name of that lady as title. Once I opened the pdf file, it was done in the name of a gentleman, that is not her husband and not her father. All the basic information was absolutely useless! I did a search myself on the internet and I found the lady on Facebook and also a Company she was part of and the place she is working today!!! I called PeopleFinders, got to speak easily to a courteous assistant and she was nice and did rerun the check, but came back saying that the result was the same! So I told her about my personal search, and asked my money. She told me that this will be effective in 3 days. To be followed.

      I looked up a number to locate who is harassing me. They said it was free. Then they claim to have all of the information but now I have to pay for it. Bait and switch. This is nothing but a scam, preying off of people's need to know who is harassing them. Don't waste your time.

      I signed up to see if I could find any information on the people that stole a classic car that was left to me by father. The information was inaccurate and unhelpful. I called to cancel and spoke to someone that told me they would cancel but that I would still have access up until the end of the 7-day trial. Checking through my account and I see I have been getting charged for the service. I emailed to let them know of their error and they proceeded to tell me that it was my fault. They said they would not refund my money but they would give me vouchers. I didn't use the service at all after I cancelled so what would I need vouchers for?

      This is the worst kind of customer service I have ever had. I didn't use the service beyond the trial days and I called to cancel within the trial days. They can clearly see I did not use the service. It is a rip-off to accept that I am in the wrong and not their employee who failed to cancel it correctly. I suspect they do this routinely, fail to cancel the account correctly, so they can collect extra months of fees and play dumb. Do what's right Peoplefinders and refund me for unused access to a service I didn't use.

      I signed up for a free trial for $0.99 to look up a phone number’s owner. Then they offered me to send a “PDF REPORT” via email for an additional $0.50. The pdf was nothing more than the name and the phone number, which I had taken a screenshot for. Had I known I’d get the same information, I wouldn’t have paid for it. To top it off, I canceled the free trial Right away, and they charged me $2.95 for it. I called and the rep Irma told me she was not going to give me my money back because it was stated in my screen that if I cancel the free trial before 3 days I would be charge. I NEVER saw that statement, otherwise why would I pay more to cancel a free trial than what I paid for the service? Total non-sense! They are misleading and their tricks are a total rip off!

      They tried to charge me the next day for a monthly fee.. Their information was less than I could find on Facebook.. It locked up my ATM card because of fraud charges! I had to get a new card.. Embarrassing to have Safeway say my card was declined!!!

      I called to cancel my account completely. I requested to erase all of my personal information such as my name, credit card and home address. I was told that they cannot help me and that my personal information will have to remain in my account even if I don't use it. So I can cancel my personal information from a Gmail account but I cannot from these sleazy people? Do yourselves a favor and do not open an account with them or you'll regret it.

      This company solicited me and for a $1 they would check someones files. I paid the dollar and checked that I did not want the service and I've never used it since. Visa/Costco called and wondered about the charge - I didn't even know I was being charged (which is probably my fault) as I did cancel it. From 2018 until today they have nailed me in excess of $800./00ik.

      I, like so many others used this shady service to locate the owner of a phone number and thought I was paying a small fee of around $1.50 and months later I see they charged me $24.95 from July through November (a total of $125.00 for NOTHING). When I called them to complain they said they could only credit me for 2 months! What a way to make a living! Who are we going to scam today?! They sound very professional when you talk to them on the phone but they are crooks.
