While trying to help a troubled, new-found friend who had a known history of jail time and unpaid bills, I decided to do a background check. Based on Instant Checkmate's advertising, this internet site seemed to be a perfect source. Fortunately, I only paid $1 for a five-day intro. What a waste of time and money. With the exception of names of her mother, father, and sister, everything else was either inaccurate and/or very outdated. Included was information of 7 marriages. Totally false. I know she that although she has had 3 children, she has never married. Also reported was that she had a pilot's license. The truth is she doesn't even drive a car, let alone piloting a plane! The report showed no criminal history. I know she has had several arrests and spent at least 2 years in an Indiana prison. So even though I had only paid $1, based totally on principle I decided to make them accountable by canceling my account and requesting a refund of the $1. While I was able to cancel, they refused to refund my $1 based on the fact that their web site indicates reports might not be 100% accurate. Their agent questioned why I was so concerned about $1. I explained it was because of principle, and also encouraged him to go online to see comments from others as to the integrity of the company he was working for. I calmly told him that if he was my son, I would encourage him to look for work with a more reputable company. All that to say, do NOT waste your time or money with Instant Checkmate.
