I was incredibly impressed with US Search. I was able to find information here that didn’t surface through any other background search. Keep this one in your back pocket. The individual I was concerned about is probably still scouring the internet trying to find the leak. I highly recommend this service,. It was worth the money in my situation. Additionally, their customer service is amazing. They are knowledgeable, prompt, and extremely helpful. The representative I spoke with to cancel my subscription absolutely made my day, quickly solving my issue. It’s nice to know this company values quality and service over a quick buck. I anticipate that this way of business will take this company to the top for the long haul.

    Well I was being scammed by a romance scammer. That tried and tried to get me to cash a check and send a Apple gift card. But I've read too many articles on this subject so I didn't send them a dime nor gift cards. Thank you for letting me know. I was correct on my feeling I was trying to be scammed. I will recommend your service to friends and family.

    I would like to give the highest customer service assistance rating to Ms. Alex, who did a SUPERB job of walking me thru, by phone, how to correct an error on my part during my initial subscription phone number verification which resulted in my having to do a verification code each time I logged into my account, plus she also answered my call right away to boot! Wish all customer service everywhere could be like her! -Thank you for your time and for this feedback opportunity, sincerely, Lee **.

    This has been by far the most informational site I have come across yet. I've tried many others and have never gotten as much information as this site gives. Amazing and awesome is the best way to describe it. I would recommend trying this site first or if you're still looking for some information that you just can't seem to find anywhere else.

    US Search is my go-to source when I need to look up information. I really like the many ways to search and how easy it is to purchase the information once I am confident that I have found the correct match. I like that I don't have to buy a monthly membership, but have the option available if I need it.

    Great service. Never let me down. The only issue I have IS NOT with the searches or reports, but with the login. It used to be simple from any device. Now I have to be in my computer to use it because I do not have all my email accounts in my phone.

    Able to find relatives on my mother's side, all my siblings so far. Haven't connected with them yet to determine if the information is accurate but I'm trusting that it is. Looking forward to using the service to find more relatives.

    I was amazed I was actually able to find a name. I have been getting harassing calls and texts for days. Many very anger and nasty. Thank you for finding a name to my pain. Hopefully I will able to contact the proper people and get this guy taken care off.

    Search is easier than previous programs. I have used over the past 15 years and it is better now when using narrow search patterns. There needs to be a means to correct personal information. There is no current easy to fix problems in data.
