is a scam! Do not use!

308 of 330 Peoplefinders reviews

I used to find a phone number for me.I was under the impression it was only going to cost $0.95.

They ended up charging me and extra $0.95 to email it to me and then a hidden charge of $24.95 for not canceling a trial I did not know I had. When I called them to ask politley and nicely after I said I was happy with their service but wanted the charges I did not use or want or know of to be taken off, they said it was completely impossible. I called my credit card company to dispute the unautorized charge so we shall see if they can do anything for me. I hate it when people are devious.

SHAME ON YOU PEOPLEFINDERS!Where is your integrity?

Its unbelievable they get away with it, 3 days! with a busy schedule if you miss their email you are screwed. 99 cents turned out to be the most expensive 99 cents I ever spent. peoples finder hung up on my bank representative when she asked for supervisor to dispute. CROOKS

I signed up for the .95 unlimited 3 day trial. You can cancel in three days or they bill you 24.95. Nearly every number I did a reverse lookup on came back as "no information". This is a total scam. I cancelled immediately and will watch my credit card account closely.
I was in such a hurry I feel *** for not first searching for reviews on peoplefinders. Lesson learned!

use debit cards, go to bank, file complaint, get money back immediately, unless you did have a contract, they got to fight you in court!

they still operate and doing the same scamming. they took 24.95 from my debit card even though I canceled the payment, I saw it while checking my money. now I'm trying to call but I get no signal on my phone to speak to someone to dispute the payment. how can this company operate for years through scamming and nothing is getting done? I personally don't know who to call to get them in court, but maybe you guys know.

@ honestperspective - the only reason you used this service was to get a private number. Otherwise you wouldn't need this service. Stalker.

I think my son is buying and selling and I am checking the numbers and gathering all the facts I can before I take action. Call me stalker if you want. When I confront him, I want evidence in my hands.

You are an ***. What you said makes absolutely no sense. How can you use the service to find the owner of a private number? When a consumer tells their telephone provider he/she wants their number unlisted or private it will not show up in any public record, even if you know their name. Besides, the purpose of the site is to find records on a number you don't recognize that already called you.

I also got taken in by the $.96 deal. They have been withdrawing $24.95 from my bank account for 7 months. I did not catch this because I had no idea I had been signed up. I canceled the account online because their customer service will not let you talk to a real person. So far they have not responded. My bank said to give them 10 days to correct this. Will change debit card if they do not stop. I'm out alot of money.

Most of you clearly don't understand the definition of a scam. Incurring additional charges because you didn't read what you were agreeing to DOESN'T MAKE IT A SCAM!! Take responsibility for YOUR mistakes.

Sep 08, 2013 #713726 Albany, Georgia, United States is a scam when the fine print at the bottom doesn't make sense to most of us and they mislead us to believe its only 95c with no reoccurring fee's. Just cuz you think you know it all and are high all mighty don't try to justify a company that takes advantage of peoples needs and wants. CLEARLY sessa, your review doesn't mean s**t to anyone on here. Hope it happens to you one day..sure as *** wouldn't get any sympathy from me or even the other reviewers on here. Have great day! Oh if you read the fine print to my comment, it actually says "have a shi**y". Oh that's right you didn't see the fine print.

Scamming is also paying for a product and getting *** for a result. I understand quite clearly what a scam is and THIS IS IT. Does people finder have you shills looking all over the internet to post *** posts like this.
