Instant Checkmate is one of the largest Public Records Search Services in the world. Our service operates by aggregating public records from all over the United States. When you run a new search, public records are pulled from multiple data sources, and this information is then compiled and displayed in a single, easy-to-read report.

Our goal is to help users learn the truth about the people in their lives, and reports may include information such as phone numbers, addresses, contact information, previous arrests, criminal convictions, traffic citations, sex offender status, and much more.

Please note that it is prohibited by law to use Instant Checkmate or the information it provides to make decisions about consumer credit, employment, insurance, tenant screening, or for any other purpose subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC 1681 et seq.

I was sent an email saying for 13 dollars I can get 30 days free. After one search I was cut off. Now they want 39 dollars and you have to pay for email check and extra for phone check and you will get charged 39 dollars a few times a month and also a dollar about ten time out of billing cycle. And after you call and tell them cancel you will still get charged. Do not get sucked into their scam and half of info is not correct so you can’t get a positive reading. All Bad. If you want a good site go to People Whiz. It very accurate. You pay one time a month. It’s free phone, emails. I tried everyone of these sites and they all suck except people whiz. Robert

I have never felt so unsafe in my life with scammers who claim to be one and they are not. Instant Checkmate helped me tremendously to remove those who are not legitimate and are only scammers. Thank you guys. I feel much safer this way with your verifications.

Checkmate does what it advertises - reveals otherwise difficult to obtain information about individuals. We found it useful recently when a home inspector gave misleading information about a home we were selling - checkmate revealed numerous problems with the individual, including tax evasion and other unhappy clients.

My call assistant Jake was very helpful in refunding me my money after confusing small print lead to me purchasing a plan I didn’t need or use. I appreciate the help and that there was only about a minute wait time.

Always helpful for whatever I have been looking for. Also very accommodating on the telephone. They try every way to help in your needs as a customer. Also have been very lucky in finding the correct information I have been looking for in a long time. I would recommend to my friends and family anytime.

Overall I was very satisfied with your service. I was able to locate the majority of the people I needed to find. If I ever decide to return to the service I was engaged in I wouldn't hesitate to use Instant Checkmate again.

I use Instant Checkmate to get contact info and to determine if a person should be safe to meet alone. Not sure if I should rely on it so much for the latter, but it works good for the former. Been subscribed for several years. Never tried another system.

I've had good results with the service and customer service. A little pricey compared to others but it is worth trying to see if it meets your needs. When it comes to cost one has to balance a recurring monthly charge vs. only paying for it when you need it.

I am not necessarily answering these surveys in the order received. This is the 3rd one so I ask that you review the two previous surveys. The Customer Service Agents were very good and it was great that they were able to work from home and provide excellent service. Refer for good customer service: Yes! Having to call Customer Service: No.
