The  Instant Checkmate site is a total rip off.  It totally incriminates everyone's name on this site.  They are using this site to make it look as if everyone's name on this site has a criminal record.

Not the case.  I entered several of my family names on this site, including myself, and all the names pop up to make it look like we are criminals.  Under each name it state criminal record.  If you click  where it states criminal record, it goes to another screen where you have to pay money to get the criminal history. 

Nobody in my family, including myself have a criminal record, but yet this site makes it seem like we do, which is totally wrong and incriminating.  I do not want my name or any of my family members name on this site.  The reps from this site explained to me that this site has everyone's name on it.  Their data base is supposedly from public records.  Then why do they make it look like everyone who is on this site as been arrested with some type of criminal record.   I find this offending to anyone who is on this site. 

This site must either be removed from the internet, or revamp the site so it does't incriminate people who are completely innocent of any wrong doings. 

I will also take this matter up with the Federal Communications.  Everyone has the right to know exactly what this company is doing,

Guess what?

AUTHOR: EnoughJerks - (USA)

I checked it out. I typed in my name and there was nothing. NOTHING found. Yet you say everyone is a criminal !! So not sure if , as the above stated, they have marriage/death/ect yet nothing on me. I just found it a little odd that nothing was found but you state and I quote "The  Instant Checkmate site is a total rip off.  It totally incriminates everyone's name on this site.  They are using this site to make it look as if everyone's name on this site has a criminal record."

What agency is the " Federal Communications?"

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

What, if anything, do they have to do with the problem you claim?

IF you're referring to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), they have absolutely NOTHING to do with your "problem."  They are an agency charged with keeping Radio and TV frequencies from interfering with each other.

If you decide to go ahead and report this to the "Federal Communications" (or if you already have) please post their response to you on ROR...should be good for a few chuckles.

pertaining to the complaint listed above

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

instant checkmate clearly states several times on their webpage that the following site is used for public records investigating. the key word is public record which does not pertain just to criminal records. this does however provide public housing, marriage, death, contact information, open public unsealed criminal records as well. it also does state in the disclaimer that in some cases record will not appear up to date. depending on the state, that particular state might be back logged up to 5 years on those public criminal reports so certain reports might not be available to date. If you have any type of public record, your name will appear on this site. this does not mean you have a criminal record it just states you have open public records pertaining to the specific name searched. every account does have a criminal record section, if you do not have a record it will state no criminal records found in that section. It is very important to read the disclaimers and the terms and conditions as well what the site provides before you criticize a company online for other potential customers to read about. I have had this service for a total of 4 months and i have had nothing but good experiences with the staff and company, but of course i took the time to read about the site before i just put in my information or a pointless complaint.
