I didn't want to extend my subscription and was charged anyway. Melissa gave me a refund like I requested. They charged my account when I tried to cancel my free trial and didn't go through. I call last week and the person I talked to didn't complete my request and Melissa took care of it and she was awesome. Still hasn't hit my account but was told it might take a day or two.

    I had a little trouble unlocking a phone number after I paid for a search. CSR Melissa went to a lot of trouble to try to remedy the issue. She called in a supervisor, and the difficulty was taken care of. She asked me to try again in about 10 minutes. She was pleasant to talk with and knowledgeable about her job. The whole experience left me feeling positively about Peoplefinders!

    I really appreciate the professionalism that Shawn showed throughout the call. I was concerned that I had a reoccurring membership and had been double-billed. Shawn immediately put me at ease and provided me with all of the information that I needed to be comfortable that things were taken care of. He deserves 10 stars out of 5 if it would be possible for me to give him that. You got a good customer service representative in Shawn. Thanks for hiring such great people who understand the importance of providing friendly, high quality customer service. Kudos!

    Shawn was awesome... I always... I was very mad when I called and his voice and cool attitude calmed me down instantly and he correct the issue immediately... Make that guy a boss!!!! Pay him double what he makes now. Please fix the issue that i had to deal with... It could really mess someone up, especially nowadays when times are tough and money is tight. I wasn't able to buy dinner last nite cause my account was empty...

    I called in to request a refund for unauthorized charges and I was lucky enough to get Elena on the phone. She listened to my concerns and she opened up my account to verify. She then said she was going to put me on a brief hold so that she could go over it with her supervisor. She came back right away and explained how they were going to correct the account and give me a refund. I was so happy that they didn't give me a hard time about my complaint. Elena was very soft spoken and easy to understand and communicate with. Thank you Elena for your support.

    I don’t know I had for them that they would be able to track any phone number so I started putting in phone numbers of people that I knew. None of them turned up where I knew they were so I tried myself. Apparently I live on the other coast of the US. Zero out of five, because they any of the five phone numbers.

    Did a reverse phone search using this excellent service. Unfortunately picked a monthly membership charge instead of a one time search fee. Called it in and they fixed it without any hassle. Great service and great customer service. Thanks.
