Sooooo Sorry folks;  I thought I could trust the address on the website for InstantCheckmate.com

They give an address of 4330 South Valley Blvd, Suite 118, Las Vegas Nevada 89103, telephone #866-490-5980.

However, they are also listed by their Registered Agents who filied their most recent address in 2012 as

4110 Mission Blvd, San Diego, Ca.92109 with a new telephone number 858-433-6755.

The city of San diego does not have a business listing for them nor a filed business license. Also there is no Business Tax certificate on file.

As I began to write this, I also thought that you would like to know where Instantcheckmate, INC has their

corporation. It is listed in Dover Delaware with the corporation filing number 5219769.

They have a registered agent called National Agents, Inc. and they gave me the San Diego address as the

most recent address and stated that they did not know that Instantcheckmate. [continued below]....

.....com was doing business in

Las Vegas, Nevada. No business license filed in the City of las vegas Nevada, not listed with the state of

Nevada Secretary of state, where all corpoation file a fee in order to do business.

A report was filed with the federal Bureau of Investigators and with the IRS. Apparently if you have not filed

for a business license, or have an entity number or business ID number the State of nevada cannot see

what you are up to with the handling of the finanial operations located at the Las vegas address.

I telephoned the owner of the building who leases the suite and they are Heller Companies, Real Estate.

Phone number 702-320-4400. The agent said that Instant Checkmate is not located in their building,

however, if you telephone Instantcheckmate.com at 866-490-5980.  However, after repeatedly phoning

Instant Creditmate several times to inquire where they do business they still state without hesitation

that they are still located at 4330 South Valley View Blvd, Suite 118, Las Vegas, Nevada.

If you have been using your credit card with this company you probably are scammed. Contact your local FBI,

they have a tip online website and give them detailed information about what you have been through with

your credit card. Please read my last blog which I posted yesterday September 18, 2013.

The Chief Operating Officer's name is Joey Rocco who refused to speak with me when I telephone their

fradulent business address in Las Vegas. The plot thickens and the white collar organized credit card seems

to be ongoing despite all the consumers who have been scamed.

More Info.

AUTHOR: Daniel J Towsey - (United Kingdom)

Great research from the original poster.  I found out largely the same, with some diffs.  I'll publish here so that people have all the angles.  Both could be true at different times.

Extant complaints from multiple clients about them include:

1). Unauthorized credit card charges.
2). Refusing to or delaying canceling subscriptions.
3). Just making up data. People checked their own data to find that out.
4). Using your personal data to create an actual database as they have none, like those "classmates" sites.
5). Extortion, demanding a fee or they admit they will use your personal data.
6). Still using your data after you pay the extortion fee.
7). They are no longer authorized to transact business, as recorded by the Nevada SOS.
8). This has mafia written all over it. Oh, look. Last time they filed a list of officers, one of the two principals is named Joey Rocco. You have GOT to be kidding me. This is the last legal information, from 2013. Since then they have been "converted out". Like a shell game...  This reminds me of the mafia running gay bars in the early 20th century.  Besides taking money from the patrons, you can run extortion on the side.  Ferchrisake, at least operate somewhere that isn't run by the mob still.  Their new spiffy San Diego office...I'm not making this up...is listed as being in "Littly Italy".  Right.

They are actually working from San Diego where they also run http://www.thecontrolgroup.com , a black-hat SEO org.  That is where to call them up.  Hey, tweet 'em as well!  This is the classic ".com scam".  Get scads of venture capital from nefarious sources and from plying venture darlings with outrageous promises, write in a golden parachute for the founders, hire software engineers and take a lot of that money to create a "fun working environement"- the foosball table is MANDATORY in these scams- and promise software that never seems to exactly get finished.  Fold, take the golden parachutes, fire everyone and move on to the next .com scam.  They only registerd as a Cali corporation (that's three years operating in violation of the law) last year.  You know, that's, like, a 10 minute task.  I guess when you're bone deep reflexes are to break the law, such things don't much matter.
