Instant Checkmate Instant Checkmate - Bait and Switch Internet
I signed up for the one-month subscription to Instant Checkmate for unlimited reports during the one month period
Instant Checkmate advertises that they access all of these public records and are basically a one-stop shop for searching public records. They tout criminal records, traffic citations, sex offender information, marriages and divorces, other licenses, email addresses, phone numbers, etc. Specifically information you can't even find on Google.
So I ran a search on myself (of course) and it returned nothing that isn't already out there and DOES appear in a Google search and in fact, Google has way more information about me than Instant Checkmate! Basically, I got name and aliases, age, city and state, criminal history, traffic citations, and sex offender information.
Oh - and your horoscope! They list what astrological sign the person is, describes the personality of that sign, and you can run a comparison of that sign with another sign to see if they are a good match for each other. Are you kidding me???!!!
I wanted the detailed information that they said they provide. I wanted marriage and divorce records, bankruptcies, other court cases, and so on. None of that was there. This was a bare-bones nothing you don't already know or can't find easily somewhere else report with the added bonus of a horoscope.
If I wanted the hard to get a hold of information which I guess is the marriage, divorce, birth, death certificates, email address, etc., I had to get the premium report which costs an additional one-time charge of $20 (every time you order it). They also charge you an extra $2 if you want a PDF of the report.
I'm fine with paying for the information, but having to pay an extra $20 to get the information they tout (and you have to pay it every time you want that premium information) is a total bait and switch. And the only way you can cancel is to call them which results in them trying to sell you more, convince you not to go, and not give you a refund.
Don't do it. It isn't worth it.
