ED Magedson – Founder
Instant CheckmateZephyr Cove, Nevada United States of America
The website Instant Checkmate (www.InstantCheckmate.com) purports to offer a background check on individuals. In point of fact, it offers only criminal records info, nothing more--not background or credit history.In using it to vet a substantial number of individuals, some of whom were suspected of having criminal histories, all showed up as having no criminal record.
Suspicious of that result, I entered the name and state of a convicted felon, a local individual currently serving a long sentence for a very high profile (it was on CBS 48 Hours) murder. The return was the sameno criminal record. This website is a scam and should be avoided. I cannot argue that there are no criminal reports to be found, although I found none; only that completeness is lacking (and completeness is key for this sort of situation.)
Additionally, because I neglected to read the fine print in the signup section, my Monthly Membership was automatically renewed after one month. It was necessary to contact these sharks to tell them that I no longer wished to subscribe to their worthless service. Although I was sent a cancellation number, it remains to be seen whether the charges will cease. If not, I will dispute them through my credit card company.
Logging in to their website is another problem. The process often doesnt flow; it grinds interminably. Just more reasons to pass it up.
