Public Records Checks. com is merely a scam to up fees repeatedly for supposed access to data bases holding birth,  marriage,  divorce certificates and other information held at county and municipal clerk offices nationwide.  I was searching for my divorce certificates.

I had a terrible feeling it was a rip-off, but went ahead and signed up with my fingers crossed, hoping it would be otherwise. But alas, I plunked down $42.99 for their "VIP" service.  That led me to one address, which I already had.  Then I clicked on "Divorce" records and up popped a  request for an additional 2.99, foir access to their "premiu m data base."  Again, I  plunked down the fee and continued to search for my divorce records when up popped another demand for another fee, this one to do a complete background check on the person I wanted to find the divorce decree for.

 In the process of pursuing access, I found out my membership had been moved from, which I could no longer access at all.  Instead, I was no to use "", which would give me the additional access only if I signed up for their complete background check package, which was about $50.

I immediately asked for a cancellation and refund.  Of course,  the site can't handle this.  They sent me an e-mail referring me to "CLC Bank."  Went to their site. No way to request a cancellation.

What a racket.  Don't use either Public Records or their buddies at  If anyone out there ever comes across an authentic vital statistics data base, send word.  I know that is used by the state of Oregon.  But I'm not searching for information there. 

Public Records and IntelGator should be sued in a class action.  Let me know if anyone out there is up for it!
