CIS Nationwide report was a complete waste of time and money. I do not recommend that anyone use this service regardless ofCIS Nationwide'sglowing and glossy promises of current and accurate information. BIG Rip-Off.

email trail follows:

Yes, Ilaterran a "complete" $30 report on an individual I know well who has significant financial problems. I was hoping for something like your advertised example of a full history. What I got was very little information and itwas years out of date. I'm extremely disapointed in this search service as it was a complete waste of time and money. A google search brought up more information. Please don't tell me I can't get a refund otherwise I'm being ripped off. Richard --- On Thu, 8/20/09, Customer Support < > wrote:

Pleasecancel this service and refund outstanding balance of $44.00. You service cannot even find the person I need to get a complete background check on in the name look-up. I know he exists because I can drive over to his house. He is alive because he answers his emails and a reverse search came up with nothing more than I get using Google . Your site apparently has no information on him even though thereis plenty of history if you know what I mean. You say you don't keep credit card data , so please snail mail the $44 check to my house address. Richard
