They lock ability to edit info behind a paywall, and if you pay and later want to cancel your membership, they don't let you and they don't refund you, even though it says they do refunds on the website. Don't trust mylife.com

Although I've heard about MyLife for years, I never paid any attention to it because of all the negative publicity in the press. Recently, though, I looked up my "personal info" on MyLife to see how bad the site really is. It's pretty bad.
For one thing, they have me listed as the Vice President of a well-known national company. Not only am I NOT the Vice President of this company, I have never worked for this company in any capacity, and I've never even done business with this company. I have no idea where they got their info, but it's false.
For another thing, it has me listed as a "Registered Republican," although I certainly am NOT.
For a third thing, it says I have an arrest record, as well as several legal judgments and liens against me. Again, this is ALL false info.
I see that many other people have the same complaints about MyLife, from complete misidentification to fake criminal records, etc.
MyLife does this deliberately, I'm told, so that you try to sign up (for a 7-day trial) to correct all the bogus information (which they don't do, by the way). Then they start charging you for a monthly subscription, even after you cancel.
In my opinion, MyLife needs to be prosecuted for fraud, among other things.

Mylife is an older school of thought social rating platform that didn't keep up what it sought to do. It didn't get all the meta-data it needed to get or anticipated itself to get to derive an accurate citizen score on each of us. The surveillance is out there but secrecy from the top is unobtainable to all but the wealthy power elite. China runs on a social credits system which is derived from the intensive surveillance which has been operational since about 2007 or so. The results of the surveillance in the US has strong data on the Americans but it can't be put out on the surface web per policy. Mylife uses cheap third party sources that are commonly available to anyone and charges for it. This info is known to be unreliable and the admin over at mylife admonish us not to make official decisions about us based on the content of their site. In short, mylife is something that anticipated itself being the leader in personal data brokering but the nature of the field left the administration of both mylife and classmates not being the monopoly they anticipated. The fallout from a lawsuit some years ago really hobbled all but the few at the top to hold the comprehensive personal data of the masses.

Review by Opperman1 month ago
I started doing some research on this company after googling myself and finding inaccurate and damaging information. I am a healthcare worker and business owner. They are saying I have a criminal record and I don't. This is extremely damaging. They also have two different ages for me, addresses I've never lived at and my x husband who died 14 years ago is apparently now 67 years old and living at my old address. This company and all of it's employees are truly disgusting

I went to this site thinking that I needed to worry about the information that was on the site as I am currently applying for jobs. My "reputation" score on this site is poor, however, besides 1 traffic violation in the last year, I have no convictions or otherwise derogatory information. I made the mistake of purchasing a subscription thinking this was a valid site and now realize this is a huge scam. Please do not waste your money or your time on this site.
Review by Amvar Cassettari1 month ago
Tried the one review for $1. They said call to cancel ongoing subscription. I did immediately. This was business account. 3 months later accountant asked about MyLife charge. They kept changing even though cancelled. Took several phone calls before they admitted I had canceled. Finally gave money back. Unethical and shady business model.
Review by Airrift1 month ago
Half of my information is incorrect and my "reputation" score is worse than a child molester. I do work at my church which requires a background check. I think I'm good. Also, upon further investigation, this site was sued in 2011 for false information and making you pay to give you a fake list of names of people searching you. Total scam.

Signed up for mylife.com for the $1 trial period to cross check a prospect tenant background. Though I cancelled my subscription I was still charged $69.95. On top of that the information provided was inaccurate and incorrect: her two evictions were missing! Good thing I was able to gather this information somewhere else. Now I'm stuck with the credit card charge and having to fight it.
Review by Lizzyannbee1 month ago
I messed up by not checking into them before agreeing to the $1 trial. And of course like everyone else was then charged $54.95. I have requested a refund but I am not holding out much hope to actually get it back. There was a lot of double talk during the call. And at the end of the call the rep stated that I could do a trial for $1.... Run from theses people.
Review by Deurbanski Kainer2 months ago
This is not a reputable company, as I signed up for the "Trial" which was suppose to end in 7 days for $1.00, I cancelled my subscription the same day/same session in which I opened it. It asked me to verify that I wanted ONLY the 7 day trial and if I still wanted to cancel my membership, in which I answered yes only wanted the trial for $1.00. Today, a month later... I look at my bank account to see a charge for $14.95 from this website, so I call them. I explained I only signed up for the trial for $1.00, but OF COURSE they were not willing to refund my $14.95 charge. This right here tells me they are a scam, as MOST online services I've ever dealt with that were legitimate always has apologized and refunded the unauthorized payment and removed my subscription. DO NOT sign up for this site, as it gives you the option to cancel same day but apparently it doesn't cancel it. Thankfully I noticed the charge the first time it was taken out of my account so no more should be taken out.

Review by Hakuji2 months ago
I can not tell why this company still exists. It listed under age minor info which is dangerous. 80% of the info I searched end up inaccurate, outdated, or falsify. No point about reputation score if info is false, no matter how good its secrecy algorithm - probably also a scam by itself.
Review by Petinka Cumins2 months ago
I authorized a $1.00 charge. MyLife.com charged me $1.00 twice and then charged me $59.95. Thankfully I saw the $59.95 charge on my credit card statement and was able to dispute it. All of the information I saw with the $1.00 I paid was incorrect. I'm not Jewish and I am not Hispanic. I will make sure that I am credited the $59.95 or I will report it as fraud with my credit card company. This website needs to be taken down.

When teachers tell you about bull$#*! research, it's things like this worthless website. I wanted more info on a man I factually know to be a repetitive convict, drug dealer, and abuser and nothing was in his history. A clean woman I know well had a lower score. I'd rather pay for that checkmate website
Review by YeetMaster2 months ago
I went to the site, set up an account. It allowed me to lock & "edit" my info on the site for free, so I thought, "Okay, must be legit." I did all the above and it gave me a higher score.
Today, I decided to try to edit some more info. They do not recognize my account and all the changes have been reversed. I was going to pay the 7 day trial, but decided to check for scams and came here to see all the really bad reviews. Thank you to all of you for telling your story!

I have a relatively bad reputation score but, hey, what do I care? MyLife.com also says that, unfortuantely, I died nineteen years ago. Maybe they think I'm a vampire or a witch. Cool!

This site is a complete fraud. Its almost,no wait,it is impossible to get a refund from these crooks. 18 days and still waiting for a refund because of a quote technical issue.mylife.com reputation score is 0.how dare they judge a persona reputation.
Review by Gweedo2 months ago
I created an account online, I (stupidly) gave my credit card information for the $1 one-week trial. Nearly all the information on the site was wrong, especially my "associates and family members", most of whom I'd never head of. So I went through the motions of cancelling the account online. One week later, they charged me $50.85 to renew my membership. Apparently there's fine print somewhere on the site saying you have to call to cancel. They don't even send you an email until they've charged you the 50 bucks, in hopes you'll forget about the $1 "trial". So they let you think you've cancelled your account and don't actually tell you to call to cancel until after they've charged you.

When I called for a refund the lady refuse to send me a notice of my refund, she sent a letter about the services I signed up for. I called back and spoke to a manager I had my money the next day.....I think it's bad how they mislead you to think something is negative on your record
Review by Ansou2 months ago
I have looked up several people on this site that I know and the information is very old and not accurate. Their scoring system is whacky also. People who are on the street drug addicts have higher scores that extemely successful and responsible people. Married status is inaccurate, as well as income. I have been divorse for 13 years and it states I am married. People who have died years ago are still listed as alive. They confuse records of people that have the same name.
Review by TobiasT Penic2 months ago
This site is a nightmare.....95% of what is posted about me is wrong - wrong cars, wrong net worth, wrong salary, wrong job, says I am related/associated with people I have never heard of, has me listed as supporting political causes that I most certainly do not support. Says I have lawsuits/liens/bankruptcies which I do not have. Says I am a MAN, although the last time I checked I still have the vagina I was born with 47 years ago. The only thing they got right was my name and birthday. And of course my address is right there for anyone who wants it. How can they get by with posting this nonsense???

Review by Manoje2 months ago
I signed up for a $1 8-day trial simply to check information on my online profile. The confirmation email said NOTHING about auto-renewal. 5-days later they post an $85 pending charge on my credit card. I try to deactivate the account, and there's no way to do so online. I call to deactivate it, and they, of course, try to sell me more services. When I asked if I could simply deactivate the account immediately, they got nasty.

They double billed me and keep it up after canceling. Signed up for one month. They double billed and then keep double billing. Customer service operator very thick accent. Can't get anywhere with them.
