I went on that site to look up a mysterious number that had been bothering me and they even showed me a preview of a blurred name and what area it was coming from only for them to tell me they can’t find the number once I had payed the 5 dollar membership

Misleading website ad
Ad said they would provide me with a lot of background info for 15 dollars. all they provided me with was basic info like address, phone number. the ad said they would provide me with criminal background, arrest records and more. instead they told me I would have to pay more money for such info. the website ad is deceptive.

The information they provide is totally useless
The report Instant Check Mate provides is totally useless and is a total scam. Do not buy!!!!
I was looking for data on a person I suspect is dealing in illegal investments and Checkmate came up on a serge engine. But after entering the surge data I was forced to accept the premium service to review the requested report. At the end no information was given and whole thing is useless. Net result $ 79.15 for nothing.

Misleading proposal for background checks
Advertise for history and background and location report on individuals and when you pay fee they want extra $ for this info and give you almost no info for for fee paid. VERY misleading. Once they got your money they want more for same promise of service that was originally made.

Billed for extra services
I ordered one background check for $19.99 and was billed for 3 separate services totaling over $60.00. The background check I ordered was not the right person although the data on the screen had pertinent information on the person being checked. Apparently, at least two peoples separate profiles were mixed together. When I asked for a refund I was told "too bad" no refunds.

Received nothing for my money
Read what I thought was a news article and turned out it was an advertisement for this company. they get your money and never provide the info you seek. additional charges are required to keep going on their site. they provide no info that is not already available in the phone book.

I canceled my one dollar five day trial immediately and was still charged
They have an option of a $1.00 five day trial which promises no charges beyond the $1.00 if you cancel within five days. WHen the trial activated their background check info was less that what we found on our own. Our niece was dating a registered sex offender but even though we found it out free when we tried to get more info through instant checkmate they had no info on him at all. We immediately canceled the free trial., but lo and behold a charge shows up on my account for $29.53. When I called them they said I never canceled the trial. I watched my wife cancel the membership, but they say she didn't. So not only did they steal $29.53 from me they cost me 30 more dollars in isf fees and then had the nerve to call me a liar.

After paying fee and being told this content will be violent and shocking I recieved no results
I was on a Sherrif's website trying to find out why my son had been arrested. I went under PUBLIC INQUIRY and booking log and somehow got connected to instantcheckmate.com. After paying my fee I got many messages that said gruesome violent shocking content . My results came back blank.

Took my money and the site doesn't give info promised
I went to this site to get my old bosses phone number and was promised once I pay $9.86 I would get the address and phone number of my old boss. They took my money and then the info that was promised wasn't available and they then asked for more money to get the info. These people need to be arrested!!!

charging my account with fees that i didnt incure
I signed up for a 5 day trial period for a 1.00. after looking up 7 different people, I checked my account and was charged $20 for each look up. When I called they claimed I clicked on premium. I explained I didn't and return the money. They only refunded 3 of those 7 charges.

Bait and Switch Scam
This company promises a comprehensive background check for the monthly price of $22.95 then after purchasing you get nothing you counldn't have gotten from google or any ordinary internet search. If you try to access the information they promise they require you upgrade to their premium service for an additional fee. When I immediately called to cancel the service within 30 minutes they told me I could not get a refund as the service for 1 month would be provided. Don't get taken by these people!

not providing promised information
Instant Checkmate promises to deliver PREMIUM information on a person using public records. I spent $45.00 for a PREMIUM report that did not: list brothers, sisters or cousins, list properties owned, neighbors, businesses owned, maiden names, date of birth but no locations, sex offenders numbered but not named (public records in Michigan) no dates for anything. this site promises much, but for the money, delivers ALMOST NOTHING. I know the person I asked about, the site provided ALMOST NOTHING. The site is a clever SCAM, learn from my $45.00 MISTAKE!!!!!

Not providing service advertised
They offered a one time only fee for a service,then they sent me an email saying they were billing my credit card monthly for 22.86; they also could not provide the service promised as they are not in compliance with NYS laws. When I tried the service, they could not give me any information that I paid for.
I ordered this check mate service online and then tried to do a background check, which did not show anything. I then entered a request on a person whose criminal history I know, and they did not come up either. I called the company and they then told me they do not meet legal requirements for my state and offered to refund half my purchase price. I advised that I was reporting them for fraudulent behavior and they offered my money back. I asked for email confirmation, which I have not received yet. They said my account would be credited within 5 business days. I am concerned this company has my account number and will use my card.
