I have been trying to reach someone I care about and the phone is disconnected.  The things I already know helped me to research on the web for newspaper and or court reports.

A year and a half ago I was in the same situation and came across Instant Checkmate and found some information that wasn't a likely match but close enough to hook me in for $1 trail offer.  I found out pretty quickly that they had nothing at all on my loved one.  They didn't even have the criminal information I already knew about.  I quickly cancelled the subscription so that the monthly fee wouldn't come up and surprise me.

After exhausting all my interest search trigger words I once again came across Instant Checkmate but this time my initial inquiry came spot on for name, town, state, date of birth and age.  The inquiry went through all it's long drawn out search catagory countdowns and all the drama leading up to saving the report and having you agree to not use the information in any leagal situaltions, etc, etc.  Then I come to the screen to pay and since I am thinking all I need is this one report I will have to settle for the one month unlimited searches for $22.?? and remind myself to cancel so I don't get charged for any future months. 

The next screen explains that the report is printed in PDF and that is fine with me and then a popup want to charge me $1.99 for the report.  Frustration sets in but I remind myself that the report is for the exact person I am looking for so I agree to pay.  The report displays and it shows me the name, address, date of birth, astrological sign.  I was interested if there was any recent court issues but the report indicated no arrests (I am aware of many over the last 12 years), in the area of relatives the report state that none were found. 

The final kick in the shins is at the botom of the page it asked if I want to upgrade to a premium report to get additional information.   Premium users sometimes get more than twice the information for an additional $19.99.  I decided that two time nothing is nothing no matter wihich way you look at it.
