I'm planning my high school class' 35th reunion and a site like classmates.com could be very helpful, but unfortunately it doesn't appear that anyone 'really' uses it.
I designated their emails as spam because the volume of emails they send out to people who register with their site is overwhelming. Thus, I think many of my classmates have done the same which is a shame given that classmates could be a really great site and resource.
I suppose they need to figure out a different business model in order to become more relevant. I hope they do so as I'd love to be able to enjoy what they could potentially offer.

These guys change names after they get caught in their scams. Reunion.com and classmates.com are now known as/owned by MyLife.com.
They spammed me. When I asked them via Facebook how they got my email address, they responded with my actual first name, rather than my Facebook alias. So, somehow they know my real name based solely on knowing my Facebook alias. In order to provide me with more info, they wanted me to give them even more of my private info. They claim that they "obtain the information through various domains such as court documents, marriage/birth certificates, voter information, census records, etc; all of which are public records." That is a lie because none of those records have my email address or Facebook name/alias. So, I asked them again how they got my email address and real first name based off of knowing only my Facebook user name and they gave me the runaround.
When I called them about my privacy concerns, they refused to provide their last names due to privacy concerns. Ironic, ain't it? The supervisor I spoke to was contradicting himself left and right. After each time he promised to tell me who gave them my private info, he told me he could not. Then he denied ever stating that he could give me that info.

A poor rating for Trustworthiness,and Unsatisfactory WOT rating for Child Safety from me.. When visiting the site, I got ads or pop-ups telling me to download Rogue( (fake) anti-virus software! I had to use the CTRL+Alt Delete command to bring up Task Manager to End Task all instances of Internet Explorer to get out.
I have received tons of E-Mail Spam, from Classmates.com. This company will solicit your e-mail address and potentially your financial information to untrusted third-party vendors.
Here is an example of someone who got scammed by Classmates.com (His story.)
Classmates.com simply can no longer be trusted. It should be rated down for ads/pop-up issues, (My chosen category), spam, and unethical business practices. I encourage WOT users to take these negatives into account when rating this site. Classmates.com is now totally a scam, and a fraud and should be avoided!
This site should be rated NO HIGHER THAN YELLOW IN ANY WOT CATAGORIES!

Persistent popups, some for adult services.

Persistent emails, does not allow removal of account
Classmates/memory lane persistently sends emails to me but the web site also persistently resists entry of account information in order to remove the account or change email preferences. This organization does not include proper identification information, such as phone, email or postal address so that a subscriber can unsubscribe or remove their account.

BEWARE, once you sign up and they have your credit card number they keep charging you even after you cancel. You can't find a phone. Stay away from this site! They have charged me twice after my cancellation.

We've all used this to find that person you liked in high school and see if they are listed. Then we all forget about the auto bill feature. LOL Good safe site.

Got here from an ad by clicking by accident.
Others say it helps other spam sites so i gave it a yellow rating.

Beware! If you sign up for the paid services of this site, your payment plan automatically defaults to automatic renewal fees. It is never expressly made clear - or even hinted at - that the following year, renewal fees are charged without your consent or knowledge.

Review by Lithemba Rockall9 years ago
This is a good site to contact old classmates but you can expect tons of spam mail and dead-end links that always want money, as a matter of fact I just received a letter via snail mail there is a lawsuit pending for unauthorized credit card charges. I am thankful I didn't indulge in classmates.com financially!

most popular communities websites
Review by Piama Bretherick9 years ago
This site is still good for a couple of old contacts every month. Just wish they would give up on charging when sites like Facebook have school classmate finders free of charge. I am afraid classmates is on the verge of being obsolete.

Only Pop-Up that gets through. Creeps really ought to quit banging my 'puter.

I joined years ago but have never used the site. Recently I unsubscribed yet they continue to send me email. Now in order to unsubscribe you have to log in and change your email preferences. No, now they are SPAM.

Any company that sells your private data without telling you deserves the lowest ratings.
