If you use Peoplesmart.com to look for someone, and pay the $1.95 for just the basic information, this AUTOMATICALLY starts a 7 day trial membership. I discovered this after the fact after using their service on February 3 and paying $1.95. I thought that was the end of it, because I got the info I was looking for. Then I see on my bank statement that they charged me $35.40 exactly 7 days later. When you try to contact them, there is no way to contact them except to send an email. No phone number, no location, nothing. Just a form to fill out on their web site. They hide themselves very well, probably because they know that what they're doing is misleading people on a large scale. It was not made clear at the time I paid my $1.95 that this initiated a trial membership - so BE AWARE if you choose to use this company. I suspect that there are a lot more people out there that have been ripped off by this company that just haven't posted their stories. Of course I have done what I can to cancel my membership, but you can be sure I will tell my bank and Paypal that this was an unauthorized transaction and see what they can do. They may not refund my money, but I will make a lot of noise about it so they'll know someone out here is very unhappy with the way they do "business".
If you choose to use their services, BE AWARE and read the fine print. I sure didn't see any. Better yet, use some other service that is upfront and honest about the way they conduct themselves.
