As a consumer, I went to Intelius to do a minor background check on a potential employee. This was for a one time check and would not need the services of Intelius after this check. The charge for the initial check was for $10.90. When the option to sign up for monthly services was offered, I declined and clicked the button to continue with out signing for a monthly membership.

When I checked my statement, I found an additional charge to my account from Intelius for $19.95. This charge was unauthorized and I am not happy with the services that I originally requested. My opinion of Intelius is that they are a scam and once they have your information they will continue to add charges to your account. This company need to be stopped and forced out of business.

#2 Consumer Comment

Response from Intelius Employee is another Lie

AUTHOR: JohnSmith - (USA)

They will enroll you in their (useless and fraudulent) Fraud protection regardless of whether or not you choose the discounted rate for the (also useless and fraudulent) record search.

When I requested a record at the non-discounted rate of $1.95, and realized that they have absolutely NO RECORD on the person they claimed to have found, I immediately asked for a refund. 

Well, they said "sure we'll refund you", but then they went ahead and signed me up for their USELESS "Fraud Alert" scam for $19.95.  I told my credit card about the fraudulent charge and Intelius is disputing it, saying that I had agreed to sign up for  this stupid, useless scam of theirs!!

AVOID INTELIUS AT ALL COST! THEY LIE ABOUT HAVING FOUND A RECORD YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SO THEY CAN STEAL YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER AND SIGN YOU UP FOR BOGUS "SERVICES" WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT.

However, theres no obligation.  If you determine within the 7 day trial that you no longer want Identity Protect, you can cancel your service anytime, online or over the phone with a customer support representative.
